Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 07, 2014
BenchPrep and ACT Mastery are pleased to announce that over 16 schools and districts will provide digital courses for college readiness and ACT preparation through the BenchPrep platform for the 2014-2015 school year. Some of the school districts have been using the program since January 2014, with remaining schools launching the program in August this year. More than 50,000 students and over 500 teachers are expected to benefit from this implementation.
The larger districts include:
- Calcasieu Parish School District
- Cleveland County Schools
- Hinds County School District
- Lafayette Parish School District
- Livingston Parish School District
In addition, 15 other districts across 12 states have also signed on.
The BenchPrep platform provides students with personalized curriculum, interactive assessments, engaging games, and valuable analytics that improve student proficiency in core math and language arts subject areas tested on the ACT and other college readiness benchmarks. Their teacher facing application also provides instructors the ability to easily monitor student performance and engagement.
The curriculum and content in the program was developed in partnership with Craig Gehring of ACT Mastery. Mr. Gehring received perfect scores on the ACT and SAT, and has since built the fastest-growing and one of the most successful ACT test prep curriculum in the nation.
The ACT Mastery Prep Program on BenchPrep prepares students for all aspects of the ACT exam. The program includes more than 20 assessments, 350 test prep review lessons and videos, 300 vocabulary flashcards, and an adaptive study plan to guide students through the material efficiently.
The combination of BenchPrep’s adaptive learning technology and Mr. Gehring’s test prep curriculum creates a turn-key solution for school districts, and has proven to increase student scores by over 15%.
The district partnerships demonstrate the ongoing need for more robust test preparation tools in the classroom, and the importance for students to score to their highest potential on the ACT.
