Yardley, PA (PRWEB) August 16, 2013
Annually, thousands of Florida high school students take the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT). The exam is the statewide standard for the determination of a student's readiness for college level mathematics, reading, and writing. With the PERT being a key student learning indicator, McCann Associates, the exam’s developer, has created a new online classroom tool, PERT Rx™, which can help students better prepare for the exam and become college and career-ready.
PERT Rx focuses on the individual students by identifying gaps in their learning and providing resources to help them become better prepared for the exam. The tool then dynamically responds to a student's performance during the process of assessment. After completion, PERT Rx immediately engages each student with remedial resources and guidance to begin the intervention process.
"PERT Rx is powerful in the classroom because it focuses on each student as an individual, adapting to their specific strengths and weaknesses, and providing personalized intervention resources. It’s much more efficient than putting a student into a remediation class where they have to relearn what they already know and may miss the help they really need,” says Scott Kramer, Vice President of Strategic Accounts at McCann Associates. "PERT Rx can put them on a clear path of preparedness for the high-stakes PERT exam."
