HOW IT WORKS (for Schools/Districts)
ACT Success Online is the perfect solution for schools and teachers seeking to maximize student ACT scores. ACT Success can be used as a stand-alone course or provided to individual students to complete the prep on their own. It can also be easily integrated into the school day in a variety of manners. We work closely with each of our partner schools to set up the perfect delivery method for your school’s unique needs.
ReportingSchool administrators and teachers have access to the “back-end” reporting tools which show student time on task, module progress for each student, and score improvements.
Teacher Training/Professional DevelopmentFull teacher training and professional development is available if desired. We conduct trainings both in person and as a stand-alone blended online course.
Pre-test and Post-testThere are two options to gauge where a student is starting out. We provide a full length pre-test and post-test as well as a much shorter, mini pre-test and mini post-test. The pre-test, whether the long or short version, helps students pinpoint the areas where they need the most improvement. The post-test allows students a final reinforcement of everything they have learned while using the ACT Success Online course.
Full Video LessonsEach video lesson is taught by Jim Giovannini, a national leader in test prep. The videos cover the EXACT skills and strategies needed for total success on the ACT. The videos cover all sections of the ACT while also reviewing the EXACT academic skills tested on every ACT exam. It’s not a mystery; the ACT tests the exact same academic skills and test taking strategies every time. Stop guessing and start learning!
Interactive Knowledge ChecksAfter reviewing the video lessons, students are asked to complete Interactive Knowledge Checks that help internalize the perfect strategies for earning maximum scores.
Skill BuildersWe believe in building one success at a time. Our Skill Builders allow students to master both the academic skills and test taking strategies needed for students to earn their Personal A+™. By separating the skills into manageable pieces, students build confidence and success without being immediately overwhelmed by full length practice tests.
Practice Passages and QuizzesOnce students have mastered the academic skills and test taking strategies, they move into taking Practice Passages and Quizzes; again, building one success at a time. This is where they will put their newly learned pacing strategies into practice. The ACT is a struggle to finish in the given amount of time; our time tested pacing strategies assure that students know how to finish the test on time. Whether they move too slowly or too quickly, ACT Success Online teaches all students how to use their time wisely, allowing them to score their Personal A+™. We even include pacing strategies for students receiving extended time!
Full Length Practice TestsThe three full length practice exams further help to ingrain success. Our tests mirror the real ACT and are updated yearly to reflect the most current changes to the ACT exam.
