Congratulations to the winner of our giveaway of 25 seats in ePrep, an online SAT/ACT test prep program…
I teach English to 11th & 12th graders in a small, rural school district. We have offered SAT prep classes in the past, but because of the limited number of students (and teachers) we can not longer offer the test preparation in their daily schedules. Our past efforts have not fostered successful outcomes. The opportunity for the students to use this software individually would greatly increase their scores, I am sure. The immediate feedback and great explanation works to identify and support needed skills. Our low income students would have access to a program that they may be unable to afford, and successful SAT scores would open a world of opportunity to many of our students.
We’re glad to be able to offer ePrep to your school, Betty, and will be excited to see how the program works for your students.
There were so many good entries—we wish we could pick more than one! We love your ideas for using ePrep in the media center and see that the media center is often becoming the center for SAT and ACT test prep in schools. Many commenters pointed out that tool such as ePrep is a great way to ease student fears and allow them to become familiar with the test’s question types and structure before the big day, especially for more challenged students.
Elizabeth Vigue says, “For many of my students, the SAT is not just a testing challenge; it also presents an economic and racial divide that they must conquer.” Laura Roose says, “This confidence booster is exactly what all students need before they take a huge decision maker for their life.”
Kathy Hossink also pointed out the innovative method ePrep uses to engage students, saying, “The program is great because it guides students along in a modern way. Most preparation for these tests tends to be study sessions with a guidebook. In the technological world that we live in today that form of preparation is outdated and probably won’t benefit most students. ePrep is interactive and allows students to prepare using methods that they are familiar and comfortable with.”
We encourage everyone to take the ePrep tour to see what the program is all about! Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
