ePrep.com Offers Premium SAT Prep Course to Every High School - for Free
December 14, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News(PRLEAP) Princeton, NJ – December 14, 2007 – ePrep.com (www.eprep.com), the world’s first online, video-based, test preparation company, today announced the launch of “ePrep in the Classroom,” a free SAT study program for high school teachers who want to give their students an edge on test day. Following the successful launch of “ePrep for the SAT” and “ePrep for the PSAT” earlier this year, ePrep continues to raise industry standards by bringing one of its unique and highly effective study programs to classrooms nationwide.
“Studies show that students can reach learning retention rates of 75% when they ‘practice by doing.’ That’s why all ePrep.com study programs are strictly designed around the practice-grade-review learning cycle. Prep courses that attempt to teach outside this learning cycle are simply wasting valuable time by lowering student retention rates to as little as five percent,” said Karl Schellscheidt, the Princeton University graduate and master teacher who co-founded ePrep.com in 2005.
“When it comes to the review phase of the learning cycle, ePrep.com beats the competition as well. ePrep.com uses streaming broadband videos to model expert problem solving in the same ‘pencil-paper’ environment that students will experience on test day. In other words, studies show that ePrep.com’s form of content delivery is 500% more effective than lecture-based learning, 200% more effective than text-based learning, and 50% more effective than traditional classroom learning. The only thing that rivals ePrep.com on SAT preparation is costly, one-on-one, private tutoring with proven experts like me.”
Teachers who sign up for “ePrep in the Classroom” are granted immediate access to a Proctor’s Guide, account login information, and printable practice test materials. The study program, which consists of nine (9) one-hour learning cycles, is easily administered in class or during after school hours. While appropriate teacher input is certainly acceptable during the review phase of the program’s learning cycle, it should be noted that “ePrep in the Classroom” was designed as a stand-alone course that requires proctorial services only.
“Historically speaking, schools have been slow to adopt innovations in content delivery. If fact, I was once told that the overhead projector became a staple in bowling alleys fifteen (15!) years before it made its way into American classrooms,” remarked Schellscheidt. “We are in the 21st century now. It should no longer take years for schools to embrace new and more effective ways of delivering educational content.”
