Merit Question and Answer
Drug and Rehab Center Looking for Self-Directed Learning Materials


Area of Concern: Help with all Subjects
Submitted by: Teacher
Grade Level: Adult Continuing Education
Competency: Below Level
I run a learning lab at a drug and rehabilitation center. The center just got a grant to purchase new computers. It needs new software too.

Our clients have a wide range of academic skill deficiencies. Several are high school graduates who need to get back into the workforce. Their academic skills have faded from lack of use.

The center does not have the resources to provide classes and one-on-one tutoring for everyone. Do you have self-directed learning materials suitable for adults?


Merit has been successfully used in many adult learning environments. The software provides a nice variety of learning activities covering a broad range of skill levels.

Merit has a clear, clean interface and the content is not juvenile. Built-in progress monitoring allows students to advance when they demonstrate readiness. Tutors may monitor users' scores and work to help keep learners on track.

The best Merit product for your purpose is the Complete English Web Suite. This program has self-directed materials for reading comprehension, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. The materials range from a 3rd through 12th grade-equivalent level.

There are full-working samples (no login required), pricing options, and implementation ideas on the Complete English Web Suite web page.
