All this data showed me that the EdReady system enhanced my [pre-service teacher] students' learning and I love that this format helped them with skills they might have forgotten from 6–12 grade math . . . . The way I know my students seemed to enjoyed [sic] the online formatting was they not only spent a lot of time on the system (average of 4 hours), but I noticed that the majority of the students used the system repeatedly during the semester even after all the EdReady assignments were turned in.
Community colleges have long provided critical pathways to higher education, but the promise of acceptance does not equate to equal access to college courses. Traditional high-stakes placement tests, historically used by approximately 95% of community colleges across the nation, disproportionally place underserved student populations into developmental education. EdReady allows for the student to study and self-remediate to increase placement or see the need for a developmental education course in areas of greater struggle. This experience—as opposed to a single-shot, multiple-choice test—gives all students the power to determine their starting place in college.
I took one of my 9th graders up to the Leeward Community College Testing Center, and, upon completing the test, he came bouncing out of the center with this big grin from ear-to-ear, and I knew instantly that he was satisfied with his test result. Systemic adoption and implementation of EdReady has been a smart approach to addressing remedial issues, as well as an effective tool for ACT, SAT, and college placement exam prep.
The students liked EdReady because it allowed them to focus only on areas in which they struggled.
This comprehensive platform prepares students for college-level work. If we have an avenue to help our students reach their end goals faster, then why not try it. I highly encourage and recommend others to participate in Texas College Bridge.
EdReady’s color-coded system allowed me to engage even the most reluctant learners to make gains in math. It was amazing to see the growth and engagement during the summer.
EdReady’s built in ‘Learn’ feature was an excellent supplement to a class lecture. It provided students with additional opportunities to master content based on individual learning styles.
The goal is to remove all of the bottlenecks and give students at least one successful math experience in their lives. With EdReady, it’s needless to say: We, and our students, are thrilled.
A beautiful part of EdReady is that you get to listen to presentations and worked examples. We have some ESL students who either are pursuing HiSET or are just trying to improve their English and math skills. Being able to actually practice the listening piece is vital and really helps build vocabulary. It's really rich for ESL populations.
Students love these personalized study plans. They love the chance to be able to finally fill in the holes that they have been struggling with all of high school, all of elementary school, all of junior high.
Let's discuss how EdReady can support your institution's specific use case.
