Ace the SAT: A Best App for Test Practice
Summary : SAT Practice Starts Here!
Ace the SAT is an app designed to support users in preparing for the college entrance exam. When launched, users must decide which of the practice tests they wish to engage. After selecting a test, users are presented with a multiple-choice question. To answer the question, users can calculate the answer on a piece of paper and then tap the screen with their answer. Once they do so, users will progress to the next question. After answering all questions or choosing to end the test, Ace the SAT presents users with their score and allows them to review all the questions. When reviewing the questions, users can select to see a solution. Plus, Ace the SAT includes a save option that allows users to take a picture of a question and it automatically saves it to their camera roll.
Please note: In-app purchases must be made to access the app’s complete contents.
- Teachers can set aside a specific amount of time for their students to practice taking the SAT test independently.
- After taking the practice test, students can take pictures of problems they missed. Then, with a partner, the students can review the missed problems and work together to solve them.
- As a class, teachers can project a practice problem by connecting their tablet to a projector. Teachers can then instruct their students to solve the problem independently. Then, when ready, teachers can call on a student to solve the problem or they can do a “think aloud” to solve the problem in front of the class.
- Teachers can show students a problem with a correct answer. Then, individually, teachers can have students independently compose a rationale for why the answer is correct. Once all students have composed their rationale, teachers can facilitate a class conversation pertaining to why the answer was correct.
