McGraw-Hill Education announced today two new test preparation solutions designed for adult education centers and institutions that help adult learners prepare for high school equivalency exams.
Offline Access to High School Equivalency Test Prep
- High School Equivalency Achieve Interactive is a LAN/computer-based product geared toward the corrections market and rural areas without Internet access.
- Digital test prep solution built in offline format is important because the market-leading 2014 GED® test is offered exclusively online, with no pencil and paper version.
- According to McGraw-Hill Education’s research, 98 percent of correctional facilities have computers, and 40 percent of all correctional facilities need a LAN/computer-based high school equivalency test prep solution.
High School Equivalency Test Prep for Spanish-Speakers
- At the end of the academic school year of 2010 to 2011, only 57 percent of limited English proficient (LEP) high school students graduated with a diploma. In 2010, 66 percent of LEPs were Spanish speakers. These students have a greater need for Spanish solutions to help obtain their high school equivalency certificates as adults.
Common Core Basics: Spanish Edition
- Launching in July 2015, Common Core Basics: Spanish Edition will offer in-depth instruction and foundational skill building for adults at six through eight grade equivalency levels.
- Product includes a one-to-one direct translation of the English Common Core Basics program for the adult learner to prepare for the test in their native language for reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies.
Comprehensive Study Guides for Review and Practice in Spanish
- To complement the Common Core Basics Spanish edition, McGraw-Hill Education Repaso para el examen GED and Repaso para el examen TASC (available Q4 2015) will provide supportive study guides for review and practice in Spanish for adults at grades 9 though 12 equivalency levels.
