Apex Test Prep Targets State Blueprints
Apex Learning is rolling out new test preparation tools focusing on high school exit exams. The online prep courses target state-specific high stakes exams and are "aligned to each state's test blueprint and designed around its unique exam architecture," according to Apex.
The exam prep courses--initially available for high school exit exams in California, Florida, and Arizona (CAHSEE, FCAT, and AIMS, respectively)--are designed to mirror each individual test in terms of terminology, format, weighting, and other criteria. They include practice, instructional feedback for students, and, for instructors, reporting and instructional management tools for customizing the learning environment.
The company will be rolling out exam preparation solutions for other states in the future, according to Apex, though details for these additional rollouts have not yet been released.
