Kaplan K12 Learning Services has partnered with the Council for Opportunity in Education (COE) to offer Kaplan’s award-winning SAT and ACT On Demand programs to thousands of high school students in Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Texas. COE is a non-profit organization, working with federal TRIO programs, that is dedicated to expanding college opportunities for low-income, first-generation students, and students with disabilities. Kaplan also will provide professional development to help teachers better meet the needs of students on their pathway to college.
“This is a great opportunity to use the services of Kaplan to help TRIO students in Upward Bound and Talent Search prepare for their college entrance tests. In teaming with Kaplan, we have high expectations that this tool will assist our students in successfully enrolling in college,” said Maureen Hoyler, executive vice president of the COE.
Kaplan’s comprehensive, adaptive and interactive On Demand programs, available 24/7, allow students to learn at their own pace and schedule with a personalized path through the curriculum. The courses are powered by Kaplan’s exclusive Smart Track ™ system, which analyzes student performance and prescribes a customized learning plan. The programs include full-length practice tests, more than 50 hours of engaging video instruction on every tested topic on the exams, step-by-step problem solving exercises, and 1,000+ practice problems. The courses also feature Smart Reports ™, which is essential in keeping students, parents and educators up-to-date on progress. Kaplan’s SAT On Demand was recognized as the top high school “Test Tool Website” in the ComputED Gazette’s 2011 Education Software Review Awards (EDDIE). ACT On Demand was recognized as the top high school "Test Preparation Website" as part of ComputEd Gazette's 2012 Best Education Software Awards (BESSIE).
“With our nearly 75 years of experience helping students develop the skills, strategies and admissions knowledge needed to pursue higher education, Kaplan’s mission aligns well with COE’s mission,” said Mark Freidberg, vice president and general manager, Kaplan K12 Learning Services. “We are proud to work with so many dedicated educators to support aspiring students in reaching their educational goals.”
