Overview

For courses in Introductory Psychology

The most learner-centered and assessment-driven brief text available
Throughout Psychology: An Exploration, 4th Edition, Saundra Ciccarelli and J. Noland White employ a learner-centered, assessment-driven approach that maximizes student engagement, and helps educators keep students on track. In this brief text, the authors draw students into the discipline by showing how psychology relates to their own lives. Clear learning objectives, based on the recommended APA undergraduate learning outcomes, guide students through the material. And assessment tied to these learning objectives lets students check their understanding, while allowing instructors to monitor class progress and intervene when necessary to bolster student performance.

Available to package with Psychology: An Exploration, 4th Edition, MyLab™ Psychology is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. MyLab Psychology is ideal for courses requiring robust assessments.
