Updated Matching Activities

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

We reworked our matching activity code for students.  These activities are located in the “Other Activities” of each content area review. It is now more visually appealing to students and easier to use.

New interface features:

 

  • Drag and drop Interface
  • Terms are removed from list when used
  • You may use your student profiles

USATestprep announces Middle School PASS Review

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Due to requests from South Carolina middle schools, we have recently completed our online reviews for the South Carolina Middle School PASS Tests. This includes reviews for 6th, 7th and 8th grade ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies. We custom built each of these resources from the ground up to accurately match the South Carolina Academic Standards.

As a valued subscriber we wanted to make you aware of this addition. Please feel free to pass this information on to any South Carolina middle schools that you feel may benefit from our product. If you would like to add any of these subscriptions, please contact us by phone or email.

DOS Attack

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

This morning from approximately 8:30-9:00 A.M. we experienced a DOS (Denial of Service) attack on our firewall server.  This effected the CPU utility on our firewall that prevented access.  DOS attack was blocked/disabled and the issue was resolved.  Our firewall has been adjusted to prevent similar future attacks.

We apologize to all teachers and students that may have experienced an outage.  We always over-budget resources and equipment so students experience the best connection and server experience possible.

Thank you for your understanding.
