CHICAGO, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Testing Timers is extending its offering of a game changing holiday gift for high school juniors and seniors headed to college with 20 percent off our entire website of digital watches at www.testingtimers.com now through Friday, December 6.
There is no time to waste for college-bound students preparing for the upcoming SAT® December 7 and January 25, 2014 or the ACT® December 14 and February 8, 2014. That is why they should consider acting quickly to purchase a Testing Timers wristwatch to maximize their performance on these make or break college entrance exams, which determine where they'll be accepted and whether they'll have scholarship opportunities.
Testing Timers was born out of need, by young entrepreneur Jordan Liss. Liss struggled with pacing himself through his standardized test and figured there had to be a better way to help students keep track of time and to ease their anxiety.
"For students and parents looking for an educational holiday gift, we wanted to provide a discount during one of the busiest online shopping weeks of the year," said Liss, inventor and founder of Testing Timers. "With increased online demand on Cyber Monday, we decided we should extend our sale to help level the playing field for students. Early results from students and tutors have proven that our product is clearly making a difference for students to operate at peak performance during their standardized test taking."
Managing the clock efficiently to make sure they have sufficient time to complete each section of the test is a challenge for students. Test takers typically glance at their regular watches, or the classroom wall clock and try to calculate how much time they have left to complete each portion of the test. By the time the supervisor announces that there are five minutes remaining, it's generally too late for students to finish the section. A Testing Timers watch solves that by showing students exactly how much time they have left to complete each section and gives students an at-a-glance view of where they are in the process.
Here's how it works
The Testing Timers watch breaks down each section of the test into preset timing units, which activate when the section begins, giving students specific markers representing the key points in each test and an easy-to-read total time remaining countdown that leaves students with no doubt about how much time they have left. The screen also reminds students of the total time for the section and provides a blinking track around the high-definition screen to deliver a quick visual of where the student should be.
Liss reports that of the students who have used the watches most have responded extremely positively, and the majority have seen their scores improve by as much as six points overall in the 36-point ACT® test – from pacing effectively, saving time, and testing confidently.
Although Testing Timers makes no claim that its watches are approved or endorsed by College Board or ACT, the products do not make noise nor vibrate, and are encrypted so that they can't be converted into "smart watches." Both College Board and ACT have publicly stated that the watches meet all criteria to bring into testing sites.
