CollegeScope® is a nine-chapter, first-year college success textbook focused on academic achievement, career development and lifelong satisfaction. Available online and in print, the program engages students, helps them to see the significance of their education, and connects success in school to their future goals — all with minimal investment of staff time and no physical space requirements.

Build students’ understanding of their personal strengths and relate them to their choice of college major and career with integrated results from AchieveWORKS® assessments for personality, skills, intelligences and learning & productivity. CollegeScope’s learning outcomes are matched to standards from the Council for Advancement of Standards in Higher Education as well as CASEL’s core competencies, with mobile-friendly content based on the latest thinking and insights from a broad range of educators, psychologists, learning theory experts, and education and career counselors. You’ll also work towards meeting Guided Pathways and keep students motivated throughout every chapter with interactive activities, self-scoring quizzes, educational videos and journal entries that reinforce the content covered and encourage personal reflection.

CollegeScope online is highly configurable and can be adapted to your institution’s requirements. 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, and both can employ push notifications. 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.

“As an instructor I really like that students can’t move ahead in the book until they have completed each chapter fully. It is easy to review the student’s work and monitor their progress. The unit exams are easy to administer online, which saves me time from having to grade them. I have used the book in ground classes, hybrid classes as well as online classes. Students’ responses to the book are very positive.” – Community college counselor

“I really like the interactive textbook. It is very easy to follow and the mix of videos, journals, and surveys is really nice to help keep us involved. I like the videos and the journals a lot because they are always useful and have pertinent information. The assessments are good because they are on information we know we read about. I think this is a wonderful way to take an online class and I wish more classes operated in a similar format.” – Student
