For the MSL Graded Practice, you will work with problems that will help you to understand decision analysis.
Many students have reported that by starting on the graded practice the first day of the unit they have been able to easily earn perfect scores. This is because MSL allows you to practice and learn the new concepts throughout the unit because you can repeat each problem as many times as you wish. The entire MSL Graded Practice does not have to be completed all in one sitting. You are welcome to leave and reenter the program several times throughout the unit as needed. You may find it helpful to break the graded practice up attempting a few questions each day instead of all in one sitting.
Within the MSL Graded Practice, you will find several excellent support resources, including a solved example for each problem, extra help solving each problem, and a direct link to the textbook section containing examples about that problem type.
This graded practice offers excellent practice and will help you to prepare for the Quiz.
Note: While working the graded practice problems, you will be able to use learning aids for each problem, but those aids will not be available when you are taking the Quiz.
You will access the MSL Graded Practice from the left-hand navigation bar.
There is no limit on how long you take to complete the graded practice as long as you complete the entire graded practice by 11:59 p.m. ET on the last day of the unit. You can complete the entire graded practice in one sitting, or you can complete it a few problems at a time. Do whatever works best for your schedule. Just be sure to complete the entire graded practice before the due date and time.
Each problem in MSL can be done over and over again until you get it correct. That means you can get a perfect score on the MSL Graded Practice in every unit. If you miss a problem three times, it will be marked wrong with a red “x,” but you can complete a similar exercise. If you get the similar exercise correct, the red “x” becomes a green check and you get credit for the problem.
Other important things to know:
- If you miss a problem, use one of the built-in help features. You can use Help Me Solve This, View an Example, or Ask My Instructor. You will also find links to the textbook pages, videos, and animations useful.
- The Similar Exercise button is to the bottom right of the problem window. If it is not visible, maximize the window and you will be able to see it.
- A good strategy is to do a few MSL problems each day. That will give you plenty of time to work each problem and get help if you need it.
- When you work on the MSL Graded Practice, your grade is automatically transferred back to the Gradebook in this class. Your grade will not be final until the end of the unit, so do not be alarmed if you see a grade before the unit is over, and before you have completed the entire graded practice. Just know that your grade will update when you have completed the graded practice.
