Prepare college students for success in their first year… and well beyond

The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows

College & Career Success, based on the 8th edition book of the same name, is a 14-chapter online student success textbook designed to help students take responsibility for their success in college. Educate students with the latest findings in neuroscience, positive psychology, and future trends that relate to college, career and lifelong success. Written by Dr. Marsha Fralick, College & Career Success incorporates the knowledge and insights she gained as a college counselor and professor over three decades.

Encourage optimal learning and studying with AchieveWORKS Learning & Productivity and content specific to math success. Engage students with interactive activities to practice the learned material, provide instant feedback with auto-scored quizzes to check understanding of key concepts, and encourage critical thinking and application of the course material to their personal lives using journal entries. Results from AchieveWORKS Personality and AchieveWORKS Intelligences assessments help students learn about themselves and review career possibilities. Set students up for success when they think positively about themselves and their future!

College& Career Success online can be offered for paid credit, is highly configurable, and can be adapted to your institution’s requirements. Choose the most efficient method of delivery – classroom, online or hybrid – and enjoy the robust administration, with tracking and reporting tools that ensure students are participating. Integration with Canvas, Blackboard and D2L learning management systems (LMS) means that professionals save time right away on setup, student management and grading, while students find everything they need in one location.

“South Mountain has adopted the Canvas integrated College and Career Success e-text for our College Success Strategies course in the Spring of 2017. The interactive e-text has made it easier for students to engage the course material more fully and the integration with Canvas has also improved the user experience for the instructors. The embedded assessments, journal responses and chapter quizzes encourage students to more fully review material for classes and allows instructors to see the extent to which students are connecting with this material. The resources provided to the instructors exceeded everyone’s expectations and this transition to the new materials has been a very positive experience for all involved.”
