Cengage Learning Testing Powered by Cognero® is a flexible, online system that allows you to: import, edit, and manipulate content from the text's test bank or elsewhere, including your own favorite test questions; create multiple test versions in an instant; and deliver tests from your LMS, your classroom, or wherever you want. Every question has undergone a series of accuracy checks and anti-piracy reviews, as well as a multi-point inspection to remove weak question options (e.g. all answers are correct), sharpen ambiguous questions, and ensure balanced coverage of major course concpets, difficulty levels, and Bloom's Taxonomy. The test bank questions form the basis for the assessments in the GOVT Online product, and are different from the Practice Quizzes available for students.LMS Integrated GOVT Online, 1 term (6 months) Instant Access (ISBN-10: 130566695X | ISBN-13: 9781305666955)
