SAN ANTONIO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ECS Learning Systems, the leading Integrated Standards Prep™ company and developer of STAAR MASTER®, announced today that PREPWORKS®, its new line of test prep solutions, won four EDDIE awards from ComputED Gazette. For 2018, ECS Learning Systems’ PREPWORKS won an EDDIE for each of its Algebra, Geometry, and Civics programs, as well as one in College/Career readiness for its ACT and SAT courses.
“As the most awarded line of test prep solutions, ECS Learning Systems through PREPWORKS is providing innovative blended learning options to students across the United States,” said David Cumberbatch, CEO of ECS Learning Systems. “We are excited to continue the legacy PREPWORKS started with its first award in 2013 and with more than 43 national education technology awards for its industry-leading solutions in College and Career Readiness (for its ACT and SAT solutions), Algebra 1 (new for 2018), Geometry, and Civics.”
ComputED is one of the premier computer education resources in California sponsoring The Best Educational Software Awards (BESSIES) in the spring, and the Education Software Review Awards (EDDIES) in the summer. As part of the EDDIE awards, ComputED reviewed the ECS Learning Systems PREPWORKS College and Career Readiness SAT Adaptive Course in depth and commented:
“The SATs are, arguably, the most important test a young person will ever take. It determines which college he/she can attend, whether scholarships and grants are available, and so much more. Preparing for the tests is paramount! But how to go about that?
PREPWORKS has the answer: PREPWORKS College & Career Readiness SAT Adaptive Course. First and foremost, it is an elegant program with clear graphics and a simple, user-friendly interface. Designed to adapt to individual users in real time based on performance in each lesson area, it is incredibly thorough and rich in practice and instruction. The SAT Adaptive Course offers thousands of HD video lessons and practice questions with detailed explanations, three SAT practice tests, a library of thousands of core knowledge videos, access to a live instructor, and, if a student doesn't gain at least 200 points, PREPWORKS will refund the fee (although the average point gain is 300 points).
While there's nothing flashy about the SAT Adaptive Course, it is a very well-rounded, comprehensive tool from which most students will benefit, and we highly recommend this 2018 EDDIES College/Career Readiness Website winner.”
