The On-Demand Core Program is designed for 7th-12th grade students who prefer to prepare for the PSAT/NMSQT®, SAT®, and ACT® tests on their own time. Students have six months of online access to on-demand videos featuring our proprietary curriculum and expert instruction.
The On-Demand Core Program contains approximately 120 hours of student activity and on-demand instruction and is built on several foundational elements that all work together for a student’s maximum success: Lessons and Bonus Lessons, Workshops, and Practice Tests with Reviews.
Let’s take a look at everything that’s included in the On-Demand Core Program.
These two-hour, lecture-style classes use our proprietary curriculum in an instructor-led, on-demand video format to teach students content and concepts from the national tests, how to approach question types, and how to apply specific strategies to get answers quickly and confidently. There are six math lessons and six verbal lessons that the student attends at his or her convenience via our online student portal.
Students will have access to a set of five additional lessons that provide more in-depth instruction for the unique content found on the ACT test.
For extra practice, each lesson contains 30-45 minutes of targeted homework with sample problems of varying difficulty to reinforce what was learned during that specific lesson. Homework answers and explanations are also provided in an instructor-led video format.
Students will have access to 12 on-demand homework activities.
Students are also given access to 12 units of vocabulary. Advanced vocabulary is found on both the reading and writing passages of the tests and often makes answer choices challenging. Continued vocabulary practice helps make navigating those parts of the tests more effective. Each unit also includes an on-demand video for review and explanation.
On-demand workshops provide targeted practice on the tests’ most challenging content. Each workshop covers a variety of concepts and strategies in a format that could include short quizzes, feature problems, strategy usage, and more.
Students will have access to 24 on-demand workshops (12 verbal and 12 math).
For extra practice, students will take a short section of the test and receive feedback in a recorded quiz-and-review format. These four on-demand workshops cover each section of the ACT test: English, Math, Reading, and Science.
Full-length practice tests for the SAT and ACT tests help students build mental endurance and put it all together.
Students can take practice tests at their convenience and will receive a detailed test analysis report identifying strengths and weaknesses. Each test includes an on-demand, instructor-led review in which teachers explain each problem on the test, common mistakes students make, and how to effectively find the correct answer.
