PREPWORKS E-Learning Systems is a blended course designed for 9th-12th grade students looking to strengthen their math and verbal fundamentals in preparation for the PSAT or SAT.
Students begin by taking up to six different diagnostic tests to set a baseline of competency. Following that, they learn through a series of HD video lessons that can be streamed to any device. Students can then work through any of the the several thousand test questions using the Interactive Sketchpad, which can turn any device into a writeable canvas that breaks down problems into a step-by-step process. If a student ever gets completely stuck on a problem or concept, they can access weekly live help from one of Prepworks’ qualified instructors via online office hours.
While students progress through the course, PREPWORKS Learning Positioning System (LPS) technology microtags each question, collecting data on the strengths and weaknesses of each student. The LPS will then re-calculate a student’s path through the program, directing struggling students towards unique content, and focusing on the appropriate core concepts and fundamentals. As students improve, the program will deliver more difficult content in addition to more advanced test taking strategies. The system offers constant real-time feedback on hours spent and level of mastery.
Another element of the program, the CORE Knowledge Toolbox, is a searchable database of hundreds of motion graphic videos covering key math, science, and verbal principles. Prepworks states that they offer “up to three years of unique, adaptive content,” which also includes 48 learning modules and 8 cumulative reviews.
PREPWORKS was founded in August of 2005 by long time educator Tracy Ortega, who, after analyzing hundreds of standardized tests, developed the methodology behind the PREPWORKS system. The PREPWORKS team, which includes the VP of Product for Moodle Partner Remote-Learner, is based out of Biscayne and Miami, Florida. The SAT/PSAT Premier product was launched in 2012 and has accumulated over 10,000 student users as of October of 2013.
Prepworks has been recognized by the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for a Competitive Workforce, and won the 2013 Bessie Award for Best Adaptive Test Prep.
