Beable Partners with examPAL to Promote Equity and Personalize Student Preparation for the ACT/SAT

·4 min read

Using machine learning and wisdom of the crowd, this unique offering helps all students develop cognitive flexibility and improve graduation rates and college admissions rates.

LAKEWOOD, N.J., Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Beable, the new multi-dimensional system that connects literacy to life-readiness, announced a partnership with examPAL, the award-winning online test prep company. Through the partnership, Beable has launched its TestReady solution for ACT/SAT prep, which leverages wisdom of the crowd and machine learning to support students with highly personalized test prep plans based on each student's needs and the test they will be taking. A comprehensive and innovative solution, TestReady covers the relevant tests for Math, English, Reading and Science.

Beable TestReady is intended to even the playing field between the 'haves' and have-nots' by making innovative, high-quality test-prep affordable and accessible to all students in a school or district – and to provide requisite scaffolding in English and Spanish to enable test success for all. TestReady further supports students through its unique capability to translate words, phrases and sentences in 99 languages.

TestReady uses underlying algorithms to draw on each student's unique way of thinking and learning. Based on this data, TestReady improves students' cognitive flexibility -- the ability to identify the different strategies that can be used to answer a question and then to train each student to use the best strategy for her. By using the just-right strategy, students are able to answer questions both quickly and correctly. Cognitive flexibility has been shown to be the hallmark of top-scoring students and later career success.

"We feel deeply connected to Beable's mission to build literacy and life skills to guide students on their path toward success," says Oren Jackman, examPAL CEO. "Standardized tests are all about measuring cognitive flexibility, evaluating data and exposing students to new situations. Through the partnership with Beable, we are able to personalize student exam preparation, understand how each student learns and hone cognitive flexibility to better prepare students for tests like the ACT and SAT."

Beable brings a new level of literacy and life-ready success to K-12 students, educators and parents, leveraging next-generation technology to deliver multi-dimensional solutions based on the whole child. Beable combines social-emotional growth with literacy acceleration in core content areas, career exposure and ACT/SAT prep.

"We immediately recognized that examPAL has a unique and proven-effective approach to test preparation" said Saki Dodelson, CEO of Beable. "Using the most advanced technology available, we now have the ability to deeply understand how students make decisions, how other students effectively solve problems, and what the fastest way is for each student to reach the answer. Not only will this improve their cognitive flexibility and preparation for high stakes exams, it will help us to prepare all students – regardless of their starting points – to succeed. TestReady also gives us an even deeper understanding of the 'whole child' – and an even greater ability to meet their academic needs and achieve their college and career goals."

The full Beable Life-Ready Literacy System is available for the 2020/21 school year by invitation only. Learn more about Beable and request a product demonstration here.
