Although the ACT and SAT are designed to test similar skills, some students perform substantially better on one test than on the other. Since most colleges and universities weigh both tests equally, it is critical that students be able to identify which test is right for them. But at present, students have no resources to help them make this decision quickly and accurately. And once students have chosen a test, no personalized tools exist to provide them with adaptive learning solutions to improve their performance.
Recognizing this problem, our team of experts came together to find a solution. By pooling our collective experience in software development, college admissions counselling, test prep tutoring, and a multitude of other talents, we set out to develop a product that will help students navigate the landscape of these challenging tests. Our aim has always been to contribute to the development of confident, well-informed students by giving them the tools they need to succeed.
Offering a strong foundation to all students who want to start preparing early because we recognize that exposure to real test material and guided study are the keys to maximizing results on college admission tests. We are always open to feedback from students and instructors alike.
We are also committed to providing an affordable, reliable e-learning solution for college admission test preparation. Test Precision’s proprietary software provides support for students in the initial and intermediate stages of preparing for the ACT® and SAT® by giving them access to customized practice materials that target their individual strengths and weaknesses.
Flexibility: At Test Precision we are committed to using the most advanced technologies available to make our platform robust, secure and scalable. Recognizing that today’s student values platform flexibility, we have made our software accessible via the website, iOS, and Android. This means that a student can start taking a practice test on his or her mobile phone, pause, and seamlessly resume the test on his or her laptop or tablet.
Introduction to the Tests: To help orient beginning test takers, the application provides students with an overview of the ACT/SAT format and question types. Additional supports for practice questions include custom-built hints, video mini-lessons to review key concepts, and the option to view the answer directly.
Diagnostic Test: Our data-driven diagnostic recommends the right test for each student based on his or her existing skills and background knowledge.
Practice Questions: Once students know whether they will take the ACT or SAT, they can prepare for the test with practice questions that target their individual strengths and weaknesses. We have assembled a team of industry experts to create and maintain our database of practice questions.
We recognize that there is no shortage of options when it comes to test preparation materials. Companies offering the same old strategies and looking to profit off a “new” test guidebook are a dime a dozen. We are not one of those companies.
The web has redefined the landscape of our society, impacting commerce, social networking, health care, and certainly education. Our platform is being developed with an eye for these paradigm changes. We are building the first truly adaptive learning platform designed for the web generation. Following the lead of innovators like Amazon and Google, our team is leaving behind the formulaic approach found at so many traditional establishments, embracing change and developing educational materials that breathe new life into an old problem.
We are starting with ACT and SAT test preparation software, but we have our eyes set on much larger horizons. We recognize that much of the existing academic environment is antiquated, hungry for innovation. Our goal is to develop the kind of flexible, user-oriented platform that today’s students demand and deserve.
