New Data Tracking Features

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

Part of our new version of USATestprep is an enhanced ability to analyze student data.

Once a teacher logs in to the site, he or she can immediately check the results of tests and benchmark tests. The tabs in the center of the page make this easier than ever.

You can also compare student results on benchmark tests with a click of a button.

Be sure to explore these new options and other new additions to the site by browsing through the How-To Videos.

Over 600 Instructional Videos!

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

USATestprep now has over 600 instructional videos!

These videos are shot by certified classroom teachers on a myriad of subjects. They are short, informative, and serve as a great review of what each state expects students to know on mandatory tests.

Students can find them easily by clicking on the “Videos” tab in the center of a test page.

And if you do not see a video for a topic you need just know that we are constantly adding videos to our database. Feel free to send us some feedback, too.

Check them out today!

Be sure to check out our two new games on USATestprep.

Sasquatch Olympics allows to control your favorite yeti as he takes swings at some of his woodland buddies. See how far you can launch them over the rolling hills of the great outdoors! (Note: no actually animals were hurt in the production of this game. In fact, they are all trained professionals and wear the appropriate gear for the stunts they attempt!)

In Cheerleading Challenge you are trying to make the Royal Cheerleading Squad. But that evil Court Jester is not going to make it easy for you. Follow his moves in order to make the team. Make just one mistake and its back to the stands for you!

We know you’ll enjoy these two new games at USATestprep. But be careful: you just might learn something while you’re having fun!

One of the things you’ll notice about the latest version of USATestprep is the new layout for both students and teachers. After logging in, each user is taken to their home page. Once there, users will not only have quick access to their test subjects but they can jump instantly to their test and practice results in the middle of the page. Students will be able to see how they’ve done on all of their assignments and ¬†games.

New Version of USATestprep

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

We have been very busy preparing the next version of USATestprep for teachers and students. This post contains important information regarding the transition to the new system.

DATA CLEANUP

Inactive Student Profiles and archived test data older than August 2009 have been deleted two months earlier than normal in order to help speed the transition. In addition, test data older than August 2009 has been archived.

DATA CLEANUP FOR YOUR SCHOOL

If you would like any of your teacher or student profiles deleted, please email us (info@usatestprep.com) with the appropriate names. We will be happy to delete these for you.

NEW SITE LAUNCH DATE

If all data transition goes as planned, the new site will be launched on July 13th. One of the biggest changes is that each teacher and student will now have an individual login to the site. More detailed information will come later in emails.

SITE AVAILABILITY

In order to facilitate review before summer testing schedules, we will keep the current version of the site available while we transition to the new version. There will be a prominent link on the site pointing students and teachers to this alternate login location.

INTERESTED IN BETA TESTING?

If you are a heavy user of the site and want to help beta test the site over the next couple of weeks, let us know by emailing us at info@usatestprep.com.

Thank you for your patience during this time of transition. Our goal is to make this as simple for you as possible, but we realize that challenges may arise. We are very excited about the product enhancements you will enjoy this fall with your students. Do not hesitate to email us with your questions or concerns.
