Instructional Pages:

More than 20 instructional pages teach the available skills in Finance and Economics Foundations.  After completing an assessment, Foundations directs the student to the specific pages that cover the skills the student was assessed as lacking. In some cases there may be instructional pages that only cover skills that were not selected for inclusion in the assessment.  The institution may choose to leave those pages visible or hide them. For example, some institutions may want to hide the instructional pages that focus primarily on microeconomics and only show the ones that focus primarily on finance.
