About

Overview

The all-new Aplia for Basic Writing, Level 1 helps students master the concepts that matter most with the kind of dynamic instruction that helps them achieve success and transfer newfound skills to other classes and beyond. Whether used as a full course solution or supplement, Aplia for Basic Writing, Level 1 offers a complete web-based sentence-to-paragraph writing curriculum with special emphasis on writing process, academic versus personal writing, habits and attitudes related to writing, grammar, modes-based writing, and writing foundations (content developed to meet the needs of English language learners or students who simply need more practice in essential grammar skills). The Aplia Diagnostic Assessment identifies specific strengths and weaknesses, allowing students to focus on the concepts that they most need to address. Students work through concepts step-by-step, first practicing the fundamentals and, then, targeting critical thinking skills that ask them to demonstrate their understanding in context. Aplia’s Grade It Now technology allows students to take multiple unique attempts of specific exercises to help reinforce concepts. Finally, through Aplia's user-friendly grading and performance interface, you are able to quickly and easily track both individual and class-wide student performance, as well as generate and download detailed reports about your students.
