Schools have two options when it comes to test prep: spend way too much money on resources that may or may not help boost students' scores or use Shmoop. Cherry Hill High School East in Camden County, New Jersey, chose the latter. And it paid off.
Shmoop (http://www.shmoop.com), a digital publisher known for its award-winning Test Prep, offers effective test preparation materials at a fraction of the market rate. And after implementing Shmoop, Cherry Hill East saw an increase in average score on the AP U.S. History exam, from 3.851 in 2015 to 4.375 in 2016. Not only is that an impressively high number, but it's also the highest average score Cherry Hill East has seen in 10 years.
And that's not all. For the first time ever at Cherry Hill East, there was a 100% pass rate on the exam: 64 of 64 students who took the exam received a 3 or higher. Of course, Shmoop saw it coming. 92% of Shmoop's projected scores for students who took practice exams were accurate within one point, with 57% being precisely on the nose.
"Shmoop was a great supplement for my students to prepare for the AP exam," says AP U.S. History teacher, Tom Rosenberg. "The classroom data Shmoop provides makes it easy to see areas in need of improvement. This year the AP U.S. History scores were the highest class average in the last decade. Not to mention, every student passed, which has never happened at Cherry Hill East."
Shmoop offers prep for every AP exam in existence. Each guide includes a diagnostic exam, comprehensive topic review, hundreds of drill questions tagged to skills, and multiple full-length practice exams. It's all done with Shmoop's signature wit, which keeps students engaged. And higher engagement means higher scores.
