NoRedInk Adds New Exercises to Prepare Students for ACT, SAT
TAKING ON THE BIG TESTS: NoRedInk, the online grammar and writing program, is offering something new this spring: a chance for students to practice for the ACT and SAT. The company is releasing a new set of exercises modeled after the most commonly asked test questions, with a focus on grammar, mechanics, syntax and style. The passages will provide adaptive practice, digital tutorials, and allow students—and teachers—to get data on mastery across frequently assessed topics.
Rather than traditional test prep, which relies on “drill-and-kill” practice, CEO Jeff Scheur is adamant the new material is about building skills: “Our effort is to help districts translate writing skills to success on the tests,” he says. “NoRedInk gives students information on where to focus, rather than needing to complete hundreds of problems.”
But these new features are not free, the new exercises are part of NoRedInk’s Premium Services.
