Personalized learning and focused instruction work together in College Readiness Tutorials to help students earn higher scores on the exams.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 25, 2016
Demonstrating its commitment to expand its digital curriculum offerings to meet the range of needs of schools and districts, Apex Learning announces College Readiness Tutorials. Developed to help each student achieve a personal best on the ACT®, SAT®, ACCUPLACER®, and the Texas-specific TSI Assessment, College Readiness Tutorials focus on the skills and concepts required for postsecondary success.
Personalized learning and focused instruction work together in College Readiness Tutorials to help students earn higher scores on the exams. Pretest performance data identifies exact areas of weakness. Individualized learning plans direct students to the content they most need to review or learn with instruction that addresses a variety of learning styles and individual preferences.
“Our new College Readiness Tutorials go beyond typical test prep solutions and provide the instructional content necessary to ensure each student masters the skills and concepts necessary for success in college-level courses,” said Cheryl Vedoe, CEO, Apex Learning.
The design of College Readiness Tutorials is based on the successful instructional approach used in Apex Learning® Tutorials. In a national study, Tutorials were shown to increase student pretest to posttest performance by 20 percentile points.
College Readiness Tutorials, including GED®, will be available spring of 2016. Tutorials are also available for 6th through 12th grade English and math, U.S. history and biology. For more information contact 1.800.453.1454 or visit: http://www.apexlearning.com/curriculum/tutorials.
