APLIA FOR GRAMMAR provides your students with engaging online practice, covering key grammar concepts with interactive exercises. Your students' unique needs will be addressed through Diagnostic Assessments, pinpointing their areas of strength and those where they need the most remediation, and allowing them to focus on the concepts that they most need to address. Your students will work through concepts step-by-step, first practicing the fundamentals of writing, then moving up to critical thinking skills to show their knowledge of the rules of writing. A large and randomized pool of questions provides your students multiple opportunities to master each concept. The terminology, definitions, and difficulty of the material in APLIA FOR GRAMMAR are consistent with the best-selling textbooks in the market. Finally, through APLIA's user-friendly grading and performance interface, you will be able to quickly and easily track both individual and class-wide student performance, as well as generate and download detailed reports about your students.
