Why doing well on standardized tests is important!
College bound students are likely to have higher income and a satisfactory career compared to their non-college bound peers.
ACT® and SAT® are commonly used by colleges to determine eligibility for admission, scholarship, and college course placement. Socioeconomic indicators play an out-sized role in determining the score on standardized tests. Our intervention program and continuous improvement processes are aimed at leveling the playing field for all students. Doing well on the ACT® and/or SAT® makes college degree attainable and affordable.
Test Optional ≠ Test Blind. Learn and know the importance of doing well on these tests.
Leveling the playing field
As part of our objective of giving back to the community, we launched Analyze Ed to address the urgent need to improve college and career readiness. We utilize a unique process based intervention approach that leverages Lean Six Sigma principles to drive results at every level: student, homeroom, grade, and school.
Over 150,000 students have benefited from our formative assessment reports. Pareto analysis reports and personalized approach empowers administrators to developed pathways to raise college and career readiness.
It is not uncommon for students to improve their scores by upwards of 3 points between the ACT pre-test and the ACT state test. Statistically significant improvement, in score, across cohorts has been achieved by 75% of the schools in less than 2 years.
Our self paced program can help students improve their SAT scores by upwards of 200 points in 12-15 hours of pre-test and personalized practice.
What it means for School and District leaders?
To reach composite benchmark readiness score of 21 on the ACT®, schools need to double the ACT® score growth of the last decade. To achieve this growth in score can require significant investment of resources. We partner with schools to reduce the burden on teachers, contain the cost of implementing solutions, and exceed college and career readiness goals. We strongly believe that our approach increases benchmark readiness and prepares students for success in college.
