Maryland educators on DigitalWish.org save $250 on Test Factory through October 31, 2011.
VT, September 27, 2011 –
Digital Wish announced today a $250 grant on all Test Factory
subscriptions purchased by Maryland educators on the non-profit
website DigitalWish.org through October 31, 2011. Using this limited
time grant, educators can get a Test Factory subscription valued at
$1,000 for their entire school for just $750.
Test Factory is a formative testing service developed for the MSA in the
state of Maryland. There are schools using the Test Factory service
that have reported raising student pass rates by 10%-15% and higher,
with some of the biggest improvements occurring in special education
and under-achieving student populations.
Students simply login to www.testfactory.net and practice taking standardized test questions which are based on the state's mathematics standards. The questions are similar to those presented on standardized tests, so students gain confidence answering questions which may be similar to the ones they will
eventually encounter on the exam. The Test Factory system
automatically tracks their errors so that teachers can easily
identify and address areas of weakness. The entire service is online,
allowing students to practice at school and at home.
