DATO is a media-rich learning experience that challenges learners to master diagnostic and repair practices in 62 realistic scenarios spanning all automotive system areas. Realism sets DATO apart from other more traditional study
aids. An efficacy study on Delmar Automotive Training Online: Diagnostic Scenarios (DATO) from Cengage Learning (CL) showed that the product had a positive impact on student outcomes. On average, students using DATO received a shop performance grade nearly 6 percentage points higher than baseline.
