Supplements for students and instructors
All of our practice set titles have a wide range
of supplements designed to support them. Some of these supplements are specifically
for students to improve their learning experience, while others are designed for
instructors to lighten their teaching, grading and administrative workloads.

Student Companion and Helpful Hints
Going beyond just asking students to read the instructions,
the student companion provides students with information about how the VirtualTutor practice set
works. It describes what they will
experience when they complete their practice set and provides some helpful hints
that will increase their likelihood of success.
This companion is based on the experiences of, and feedback from, the thousands of
students who have completed our accounting practice sets to date.
Taking the time to read and understand the information provided in the companion will
enhance each student's overall experience and help them avoid the common mistakes
that students make when completing the practice set.
Instructor Companion and Grading Guide
The Instructor Companion and Grading Guide to the VirtualTutor practice set provides adopters
with information about how the VirtualTutor practice set works. It describes what students will experience when they complete
their practice set, and contains a guide as to how our AutoGrade functionality assigns scores.
The Instructor Companion and Grading Guide to the free paper format
of the practice set
provides instructors with a recommended grading approach that discusses each part of
the practice set in detail. Based on that approach, a grading sheet with a suggested
breakdown of points and a full line-by-line model solution is also provided.
In both cases, the Instructor Companion assists adopters and their teaching staff
understand how best to integrate the practice set into their teaching
and provides guidance that can be passed on to students to help
them be successful when completing their practice set.
Course handouts and supporting materials
Once adopted, we provide instructors and all of their teaching staff with free access
to the practice set, lecture slide packs and course syllabus inclusions to help students
access their practice set.
Perdisco's support team
And once semester starts, our customer support team will stay in touch -
providing ongoing assistance to both adopters and their students.
