WOW! In less than one week, we have received over 100 applications for only 2 Question Author Positions. Obviously, we have found MANY qualified candidates. At this time, we have to stop accepting applications to be able to go through them all. We appreciate all of you who submitted applications, and we will be getting back to the final candidates by phone or email by the end of the week.
According to the Rome News-Tribune, Rome City Schools and Floyd County Schools are pleased with the gains made on their most recent Georgia High School Graduation Test (GHSGT). Four of the five high schools in this area are USATestprep subscribers. Rome High School saw major jumps in social studies, nine points to 93 this year from 84 in 2006, and science, which rose five points to 82 from 77. The statewide numbers in social studies went to 87 from 85 and rose in science to 74 from 72.
“I am just tickled to death and have nothing but praise for Dr. (Tygar) Evans,” Superintendent Gayland Cooper said of his principal at Rome High School after he reviewed the scores. “I’m just very excited and thrilled about the improvements in social studies and science. This shows administrators, teachers and students are working together to improve.”
When we contacted Dr. Evans, he stated that, “Yes, I am excited about the contributions that USATestPrep had on our preparation for the GHSGT this year at Rome High School. I feel our students used the information wisely and it had a positive impact”.
If you have had a positive experience with the site and your test scores have reflected this, please let us know firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
Many teachers requested a means to track student use within our tutorial question system. With the new 5.0 version of the site, we listened and added this ability. Now, when a student completes a set of random, advanced, or beginner tutorial questions he/she is presented with an option to print a summary or email results to his/her teacher. The student is also presented with the option to retry missed questions/terms.
We also added this reporting feature to our game and vocabulary module.
