Dynamic Study Modules:
Test and improve your knowledge

Based on brain science research, Dynamic Study Modules can help you to study and remember what you learn. When Dynamic Study Modules are available in a course, your instructor may assign modules for credit. Or, you can complete modules for independent study at your option.

Assigned modules are from the same set of modules available for independent study. Any assigned Dynamic Study Module contains only one module. If you complete a module on your own and it later gets assigned: You'll receive credit for the assignment on your Mastering Scores page. This also applies to any Gap Finder diagnostic modules.

Important about scoring of assigned modules: For full assignment credit, you must master the module before its due date. The Mastering Scores page shows credit for your completed questions only AFTER you finish each question set. collapsedHow to know when you've finished a question set

Finishing a question set includes stepping through the correct answers and explanations for questions you missed in that set. You can tell that you’re at the end of a question set when you see the Keep Going button.
