Make the Most of Your Semester with Alethea 

Onboard your students

Start by introducing your students to the platform and share our onboarding materials with them.

Develop consistent reading habits

Implement weekly readings for active and continuous engagement. 

Dynamic course planning 

Rather than loading all your reading assignments at the beginning of the semester, consider allowing room for improvement by gradually refining your assignments throughout the term. This approach enhances the learning experience for both you and your students. 

Give your students credit for Alethea assignments

We recommend allocating at least 10% of final grade for the submission of all (or most) of Alethea assignments.  

Challenge your students with gradual intensity

start with relatively simple tasks, while increasing complexity throughout the semester. 

Use Alethea to prepare for class

Go over the task data page, look at the heatmaps and review your student answers to prepare for your next class.
