LearningExpress, an EBSCO company, has introduced PrepSTEP High School Edition. The online learning platform helps high school students build the skills that prepare them for success in college, in a career, and beyond, the announcement states.
PrepSTEP High School Edition is an extensive collection of academic, college preparation and career-related resources that supports college-, career- and military-bound students. It includes SAT, ACT and Advanced Placement (AP) test preparation; skill-building in English, math and science; computer skills development; a college search tool; career exploration; occupational test preparation; information about military careers, workplace skills development and more.
The platform features interactive tutorials, practice tests, flashcards, factsheets, useful articles and ebooks that students can access online anytime, anywhere, from any device with an internet browser. With the secure personal portfolio feature, students can save their work and track their progress. The self-directed tools are designed for independent use by students, which makes PrepSTEP a good supplement to coursework for instructors, a valuable resource for summer study and skills improvement for students, and powerful college and career planning support for students, parents, and guidance counselors.
PrepSTEP High School Edition is the latest addition to the PrepSTEPproduct line, which includes platforms for 2- and 4-year colleges. The PrepSTEP High School Edition with academic resources aligned to the Common Core State Standards includes more than 460 tests, tutorials, ebooks, flashcards, articles and computer courses.
