This past week we finally launched a brand new version of the site. You will notice a graphic design change as well as many other changes throughout the entire site. We are constantly adding new user suggested features. So please keep submitting your suggestions.
We will be posting detailed descriptions of these new features in future blog posts.
Also, if you find any bugs in the new system please tell us.
We are pleased to announce that last weekend (Jan. 20-21) we took a proactive move and upgraded to a new, faster server. Our goal is to provide the fastest and most reliable web experience for our subscribers. Our old server was more than adequate, but we wanted to plan ahead for the upcoming testing season.
We would like to extend our thanks to our hosting company (AlphaOmegaHosting.com) for great service in our transition. If you are in the market for any type of web hosting, we highly recommend this company.
USATestprep v5.0 is now under development! We are very excited about improving the speed and quality of the site while adding new features for you and your students. Rest assured, we will not release this version until significant security and accessibility testing has been completed on it. We have many ideas for new features that we are still considering. However, if you can think of something that you would like to see added to help your students, there is plenty of time – please contact us. We would love to hear your ideas. Send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org
This morning we added Spanish Hints to all of the Social Studies questions. We are in the process of adding Spanish hints to all questions. Our Reading, Math and Social Studies are now complete, only Science and English left to go. This is our fist step of many to help our ESL subscriber population.
You may find these hints when you are reviewing the tutorial questions. Simply mouse-over our Spanish hint icon and the hint will will appear.
We are excited to announce a new movie help system on the site. We develped the site to be very easy to use. With the addition of the new help section it should be even easier. Simply login and click the “help” link located at the top of each subject page.
The help page has a series of questions. If you click a question a pop-up screencast video will explain the answer. We compressed these files to minimize download time so please excuse the poor audio.
If you think of any missing help files, please email us and we can add it.
