NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 24, 2013) - Students can now rock both the SAT and ACT with TestRocker's one-of-a-kind online learning platform, as the company announces the launch of its ACT specific test-preparation offering just in time for the upcoming October 26 ACT test. The innovative platform that offers a customizable 40-to-50 hour study plan, based on a diagnostic test to determine students' strengths and weaknesses, will now offer modules and videos directly aimed at the ACT's four mandatory testing subjects, including English, Science, Mathematics and Reading, along with the optional Writing component.
With the standardized testing landscape constantly changing, TestRocker's ACT platform comes at the perfect time. Growing in popularity throughout the past ten years, the ACT was taken by 50 percent of students or more in about 29 states in 2012, with nearly 1.7 million nationwide graduating seniors taking the exam. At this time, 100 percent of graduating seniors in Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Dakota, Tennessee and Wyoming take the ACT. However, while more students are taking the ACT exam, the national average score is on the decline. Since 2007, the average ACT score has decreased and remained steady at an average score of 21.1, proving the increased demand for programs that address the core principles of this standardized exam.
"Throughout the last few years, I have seen my students take both the SAT and ACT to determine which test works better for them," said Suniti Mathur. "With the ACT covering a wider range of topics, we were invested in making our product as comprehensive as possible, offering more than two thousand study questions accompanied with video explanations to truly provide students with realistic practice to help them prepare for the exam. Those students who have used our platform to study for the SAT have seen up to a 400-point increase in their score, and we're excited to now offer that same experience to those preparing for the ACT."
Similar to the modules aimed at SAT-prep, all content is based on educator and TestRocker's Ultimate Private Tutor, Suniti Mathurs' proven and successful teaching method. Throughout her 14-year career as a private tutor, Mathur has tutored more than 1,200 students and assisted students in raising their score by up to eight points on the ACT.
When asked about her experience using the program, Nicola L., a student who has prepared for the SAT with TestRocker's platform stated, "It is really good because it lends to my busy schedule and I can do it in my pockets of free time. It covers every topic in an efficient and organized manner." Read and watch additional testimonials to see what students and their parents have to say about the program.
Which Exam is Right for Me?
Students are now beginning to evaluate which exam will best showcase their strengths and make them a competitive candidate for their top choice colleges. Certain states lean toward one test or the other as a preference for their students to take, but students should consider what kind of test takers they are. The challenge with the SAT is that questions are not straightforward and there is an emphasis on vocabulary. While the language of ACT questions is more straightforward, the volume of questions is hard to complete in the allotted time.
