Kaplan’s All Access License for Colleges and Universities Wins “Test Prep Innovation Of The Year” in the 5th Annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards Program

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--()--Global educational services provider Kaplan’s All Access license has been selected as the winner of the “Test Prep Innovation Of The Year” award in the 5th annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market.

By investing in a Kaplan All Access license, colleges and universities can provide all of their students with access to Kaplan’s industry-leading test prep for admissions exams, licensure, credentialing programs, and workforce readiness programs with zero out of pocket costs for students, helping them to reach their ultimate career goals. This can potentially save a school’s students hundreds of thousands of dollars, cumulatively. Exams that students can prepare for with Kaplan free-of-cost include the GRE®, GMAT®, LSAT®, MCAT®, NCLEX-RN®, USMLE®, Uniform Bar Exam® and Certified Financial Planner®, among many others.

The roster of Kaplan’s All Access license partners includes some of the country’s most dynamic historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), including Xavier University of Louisiana, Howard University, Delaware State University, Talladega College, Stillman College, Fisk University, Hampton University, and Spelman College. Cleveland State University is also a partner and reports outstanding results since signing on last year.

“Kaplan’s All Access license is closing the opportunity gap by providing best-in-class test preparation to as many students as possible, at no cost to them. We are really excited about the enthusiasm we’re getting from colleges and proud of the results we’re seeing so far. Students are really taking to it and using it as a way to tear down perceived barriers to get into graduate school and achieve their professional goals,” said Brandon Busteed, Kaplan’s chief partnership officer and global head, learn-work innovation. “Thank you to EdTech Breakthrough for this recognition and understanding that as leaders in education, we need to create a more even playing field for students when it comes to educational attainment and career readiness. All Access is doing that and we can’t wait to discuss its possibilities with additional visionary leaders in education and announce more exciting partnerships in the near future.”

“Congratulations to Kaplan and their All Access license, our ‘Test Prep Innovation of the Year’ winner. Standardized exams are rigorous rites of passage required for graduate school admissions, licensure, and professional certification, but many underrepresented students struggle with costs or lack the resources for guidance and support that could help them succeed. Kaplan’s All Access license tackles these challenges head-on, addressing issues related to affordability, access, economic mobility, and innovation. At a time of budgetary constraints in higher education, this new model equips universities to have an immediate impact on the student experience,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough.

The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, Remote Learning, Career Preparation and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,400 nominations from around the world.
