As you've probably heard, the September ACT will be going digital for all international students. Here at LogicPrep, we're ready!
Our team has been working like crazy getting our own computer-based testing interface up and running, and we are so excited to be able to offer this unique simulated testing environment for our international students. There isn't much opportunity for computer-based practice elsewhere, and we're proud to pioneer this testing format to help our students be just as prepared as ever for the official ACT. I actually just finished taking one of the computer-based tests myself (as part of our proofreading process), and phew! -- it is quite a different challenge to take a four-hour test on a computer screen, even when the content is exactly the same.
It's by no means an insurmountable challenge, though -- this new format will just require practice to get used to. Which is precisely why we've put so much effort into developing this computer-based testing interface and developing it quickly. We've paid especially close attention to the format that the ACT has announced and made sure to include all the important details to which students will have to adapt. And by launching this past weekend, we're giving our students four full weekends of computer-based practice testing to train before the September ACT.
So, LP international students, what are you waiting for? Let's get to work!
Please be sure to read these reminders if you plan to come in for a practice digital ACT:
When possible, please bring your own laptop (and charger!) to your proctored session. We have a limited number of computers available in each of our offices, and those that we have will be offered to students without computers of their own on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you show up to a proctored test session without a computer and all of the desktops at the office are already taken, we will offer you a paper test to take, but we will be unable to accommodate you for the computer-based simulation. Also, don’t forget your charger -- the four hour ACT is a long test for a laptop to make it through!
Please make sure to sign up for your practice test session in advance. Many of you already do this, either during your lessons with your instructors or by responding to the signup emails you receive each Wednesday. Now that we’re offering computer-based tests, it’s all the more important that you sign up in advance so that we’re able to prepare the unique code that will allow you access the test assigned for that day.
Please arrive on time (read: early) for your practice test sessions. This is important not only so that you get the full time on your test session, but also so that you don’t disrupt the other students taking a test alongside you.
As always, let us know if you have any questions -- and we look forward to seeing you in the office soon!
