Throughout Psychology, Saundra Ciccarelli and J. Noland White employ a learner-centred, assessment-driven approach that maximises student engagement, and helps educators keep students on track. The authors draw readers into the discipline by showing how psychology relates to students’ own lives. Clear learning objectives, based on the recommended APA undergraduate learning outcomes, guide learners 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.
