BROOKHAVEN, Miss., July 1, 2019 (Newswire.com) - In what has taken shape as a classic inspirational story, Jumpstart Test Prep recently announced the results from 15 Mississippi High Schools that completed Math and English review for juniors who prepared for the February 2019 ACT® exam (American College Testing). More than 47 percent of the students with prior ACT attempts had an average Math score improvement of +2.24 points while more than 57 percent of the students had an average ACT English score improvement of +3.15 points over their best prior attempt.
Historically, 12 of the 15 schools selected for the pilot performed lower than the state average in ACT math in 2018. Working with the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE), the goal of the pilot program was to help these selected high schools improve ACT composite math and English sub-score averages.
“Mississippi ranked 49th in average composite score in 2018. Only 21 percent of the 2018 graduating class met the math benchmark of college and career readiness. I estimate a 1 point ACT composite improvement would move Mississippi to around 40th while a 2 point improvement would have us performing better than half the nation,” said Sha Walker, Co-Founder & CEO of Jumpstart Test Prep. “In order to be fully prepared, students need a complete review of the content they will see on the ACT®, along with all the tips, test-taking strategies and realistic question practice that we provide.”
Students from Lake Cormorant HS, Bogue Chitto HS, Laurel HS, Ruleville Central HS, West Bolivar, Bay Springs HS, Hazlehurst HS, and Long Beach HS shared their inspirational success stories.
Jumpstart Test Prep’s unique preparation approach helps students of all ability levels stay fully engaged and gain the most improvement in the shortest time by explaining difficult content in a way that every student can follow and understand.
Walker cites his top three competitive distinctions of Jumpstart Test Prep:
1. Proven exam prep expertise honed over a lifetime of successful results. The content review is delivered on-demand. It is highly visual, highly animated, and students respond to the ACT® style practice questions.
2. Engaging, not boring! Presented by a group of fun, young, diverse people, and presented in short 30-minute segments. Students must actively engage as they follow along in their workbook to complete the blanks and work ACT® style practice problems as the online review progresses.
3. Improved time management. Jumpstart Test Prep reviews content step-by-step, then shows how to apply that content with follow-up examples. We follow with challenge questions allowing a clock timer countdown. Time is critical on the ACT® and by the end of our review, Jumpstart Test Prep students know the average amount of time they can allocate per question and what to do when too much time has lapsed.
