“I like the immediate feedback for the students; also appreciate your consideration in rewording questions when teachers send an email asking about a particular test item or questionable answer choices; Like the the different length tests so that you can incorporate review time during class based on your daily lesson plans; this site has been a wonderful resource for EOCT prep and the high school graduation test!!! Our first time test takers scored 7% higher this year than last on the GHSGT, partly due to this wonderful resource.”
