WHAT IS PREPWORKS?
Olathe Public Schools has contracted with PREPWORKS, an online test preparation software, to help students prepare for the ACT test.
PREPWORKS starts with a diagnostic test to see what each student already knows, then uses adaptive technology to customize a learning path of 36 modules for the student to help fill gaps in knowledge and review known concepts. Students will experience two additional summative tests which are timed and which simulate taking the real ACT online.
PREPWORKS is comprised of 36 learning modules. Using just an hour a week students should be able to complete the entire program in a semester, however students have twelve months to complete the modules from the date they take their diagnostic test. Each module contains tutorials and follow-up questions to help students review and learn topics. For each question, accordion remediation shows students step by step how to arrive at the correct answer. And once a week PREPWORKS instructors are available online to help students solve problems and get over bumps if they’re stuck on a topic.
Is there a cost? The enrollment fee is $45, well-below the regular Prepworks individual cost.
Guarantee: PREPWORKS guarantees that students will improve their ACT score 3 points or students may repeat the PREPWORKS program once for free.
