Beginning Tuesday, April 22nd, we experienced an unprecedented server load. Due to the upcoming End of Course testing across many states, we have had more students using USATestprep to help them review this week than ever before. As a result, some of you may have experienced a slow or problematic browsing experience between the peak hours of 10:00 A.M. and Noon, EST.

To alleviate this problem, we have placed an emergency server upgrade order and plan to have it installed this weekend. We apologize for any inconvenience or unproductive class time for you or your students. Thank you for continuing to use USATestprep, and we will continue to do our best to make our site the best possible review product available.

Do not hesitate to call or email if you have any questions or concerns.

Due to needs from our current subscribers, we recently completed a review for the rigorous Geometry EOC. We custom built this resource from the ground up to accurately match the state requirements.

As of last night (2/27) the review curriculum for the GHSGT Science test has been converted to the GPS-Only standards. The older testing standards (GPS/QCC) are still available via a new link on the site in the sub-navigation. Students now have a review experience that is aligned directly to the new tests coming up in March. All current Georgia Science subscribers get instant access to this resource at no additional charge.

Based on subscriber feedback, we have added some new features to the site. I will also take this time to answer a few common questions we have received lately.

Study Guide Dojo
Create custom, printable, student study guides with a few clicks of the mouse. These are ideal for tracking and documenting the remediation of your students.

Teacher Management System
Students previously typed in teacher email addresses to have activity and test results emailed. Now teachers simply add themselves to the system and their names are listed in a user-friendly pull down menu for students. No more lost results due to typos.

Section Quiz Results Now Stored
Due to popular demand, section quizzes are now stored on our database just like our tests. Students take an online section quiz and teachers may login and query by name, date, grade, student id, or teacher to find particular quiz results.

Q. When will you be updating content for new upcoming state tests?
A. We always update content before the first administration of any new state tests. Our internal goal is always to launch new review materials at least two months before the new test. We complete the lion’s share of our new authoring during Winter and Summer break.

Q. How do I report a question that contains an error?
A. Every one of our questions and vocab terms will have a link that says “Question/Term Feedback” after you have submitted your answer. We respond to all submissions within 24 hours.

As always, do not hesitate to call or email if you have any feedback or questions.

Due to our fantastic subscriber growth we are upgrading our server. The move and upgrade will take place this weekend.

Upgrading our servers will ensure the fastest learning experience for your students and staff.

If you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to email or call.
