ATLANTA, GA, October 28, 2019 — USATestprep, a leading nationwide provider for state-standards aligned curriculum resources and state and national test prep is excited to announce the launch of the company’s first-ever K-2 product offerings in math, science, social studies, and ELA.
The new products will initially be available only in Alabama, a state that begins assessment testing in second grade with math and ELA testing for the state’s new ACAP Summative assessment. USATestprep, which has historically served grades 3-12, decided to expand its offerings to young learners based on requests from teachers.
“Teachers have been asking us for this product because they know us and love us from our standards-aligned resources for grades 3-12,” states USATestprep Chief Academic Officer Dr. Christine Jax. “Educators have always known that what happens in the early years matters to later learnings. This is an opportunity for students to learn at an early age the benefits of formative assessments in the classroom. Even young learners are savvy, and they become motivated when they can see how they are learning and improving.”
Jax points out that the new K-2 products work exactly like the courses for grades 3-12. Teachers can quickly create basic or custom assessments, assign questions for remediation based on standards missed or level of difficulty with a click of a button, and use classroom resources like bell ringers to give kids activities throughout the day.
CEO Will Clemens notes the new K-2 content is filled with variety, including videos, to engage students and scaffold their learning.
“We’re a company founded by teachers, for teachers, and much of our staff are former classroom teachers,” says Clemens. “We’re here to support teachers, and we know that young learners will benefit long-term from seeing early success with testing. We want to show them that testing isn’t something to fear and that they can succeed.”
The K-2 products will be available starting November 1, 2019.
