• New Releases Bring Exciting Updates to Your MindTap Course
  • NEW Enhancements for Spring 2015


    Adjust Assignment Time Limit for Individual Students

    For CengageNOW activities in MindTap, you can now allot more time* to the students who need it.

    • Set the time limit in the Progress App, where you change a student’s due date
    • Adjust time limit to the minute, or set as unlimited
    • New time limit will reflect in the Unit view for each assignment

    *Currently this enhancement supports timed assignments delivered by the CengageNOW app only. Support for timed assignments in the Aplia app will be available later this spring.


    Hide Assignments with Submitted or In-Progress Student Takes

    You can now hide assignments even if student scores or takes have already been recorded.

    • Once hidden, the activity will not display for students
    • Any associated scores will be hidden within the Progress App
    • Un-hide the assignment to restore the activity and scores

    Other Updates

    • Screen Reader accessibility improvements are in the Recent Activity Scores area of the dashboard and the Date Manager view
    • The command Open Full Gradebook replaces View All Scores in the Performance Tracker
    • MindTap registration instructions now direct students to a system check to ensure that their system is set up for success in their MindTap course
