McGraw-Hill, ExamWeb Bring Self-Assessment Online
McGraw-Hill Higher Education and ExamWeb are now offering GradeSummit, a subscription-based online diagnostic and self-assessment product that is accessible online at www.gradesummit.com. GradeSummit combines McGraw-Hill Higher Education content and ExamWeb's online diagnostic and assessment engine to help students study more efficiently and achieve better grades.
The cornerstone of GradeSummit is the vast information students can discover about their learning progress. As students study topics from their course, they answer questions about those topics. GradeSummit then scores those answers and shows students their strengths and weaknesses. By making GradeSummit a steady part of their study regimen, students can focus their attention on weak areas before they take an exam.
GradeSummit provides instant feedback on scoring, as well as diagnostic reports that can be used by both instructors and students for individual or class comparisons. Students and instructors can use the online tool for micr'economics, macr'economics, psychology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, and American history, among other subjects. The McGraw-Hill Cos., New York, NY, (212) 512-2000, www.mhhe.com.
