Stilwell, Kan. (PRWEB) September 28, 2011
ATI Allied Health, a division of Ascend Learning, today announced the availability of its Achieve™ educational offering. This unique and engaging online tutorial sets the stage for individual and class success by equipping students with tools to develop better study habits and test-taking skills.
The Achieve tutorial, appropriate for any area of allied health education, is a foundational tool, an important pre-requisite that helps students learn how to study and take tests in a way that’s most conducive to their passing and entering the allied health workforce. It contains five modules that cover the basics of developing and maintaining strong study and learning habits, and helps students understand how to use study materials in the most effective way. The modules include test-taking strategies, study skills, fostering success in the classroom, clinical preparation and specialized tools for the English as a Second Language (ESL) learner.
“Everyone learns differently,” said Gary Pederson, executive vice president and general manager of ATI Allied Health. “Our goal is to deliver products and materials that help students learn in the ways that are most effective for them. Learning how to study well and take tests are arts unto themselves and very important throughout a student’s academic career. The Achieve product provides a great foundation that will help students not only pass, but truly succeed as they move on to study specific allied health fields."
"The Achieve tutorial also benefits educators, helping them retain students, and supporting them as they work for their students’ success."
The Achieve tutorial addresses specific skills ranging from good note-taking, to dealing with stress and even being prepared for the clinical environment. It also features a companion faculty guide with content outline as well as topics and questions for classroom discussion.
ATI Allied Health’s Achieve product works hand-in-hand with the Health Occupations Basic Entrance Test (HOBET), the company’s academic-readiness screening test. The HOBET is a web-based exam that helps identify students with the best chance of success in the allied health field. It measures the three most basic, but important, education skill sets needed for an allied health occupation. Together, the Achieve and HOBET products can help educators and schools retain students and give them real-life, skills-building support for their success. All clients are able to access these online training resources via ATI Allied Health’s proprietary Health Education Portal. This innovative online resource uses the best of Internet-based learning technology to provide an optimum learning experience for users. For more information, visit http://www.atialliedhealth.com.
