Student Athletes Given Free SAT Program By Kaplan
NCSA Athletic Recruiting has collaborated with Kaplan Test Prep to give student athletes access to a free SAT prep program.
NCSA Athletic Recruiting, the college sports recruiting organization, has joined Kaplan Test Prep to provide its student-athletes with free access to Kaplan’s awarding-winning SAT® On Demand program to help boost test preparation using advanced adaptive technology and instructional best practices.
Kaplan’s interactive SAT On Demand course allows students to go at their own pace and on their own schedule with a personalized path through the curriculum, and is powered by the company’s Smart TrackTM system, which analyzes student performance and prescribes a customized learning plan.
The program, which uses two full-length SAT practice tests, a custom study plan and over 50 hours of engaging video instruction on every tested topic on the SAT.
The course also features Smart Reports™, which “is essential in keeping both students and parents up-to-date on progress with performance reporting right down to the question level.”
Chris Krause, CEO and founder of NCSA Athletic Recruiting, said:
“The opportunity to play collegiate athletics can be a life-changing experience for aspiring high school athletes. Unfortunately, each year thousands of prospects fail to maximize their recruiting and scholarship potential, since being recruited by college coaches involves not just strong athletic ability but academic ability as well. By partnering with Kaplan, the industry leader in test prep, NCSA Athletic Recruiting will provide its student-athletes with access to all the best tools and resources to succeed on their SATs.
“Achieving the scores they need to get into the schools of their choice will only increase their recruiting and scholarship potential, enabling them to put their best foot forward when reporting their academic achievements to college coaches.”
The program recently won the ComputED 2011 Education Software Review Award for best high school “Test Tool Website”.
“Picking the right college is a life changing decision. It’s important for student-athletes to recognize that the choice of a college or university is not just a 4-year decision; it is a 40-year decision that will impact their professional future and personal success in life.
“The last thing we want is for our student-athletes to be denied by their top athletic choices simply because their academics weren’t up to par. NCSA believes in putting together a plan that will help an athlete maximize their scholarship potential. A major part of that plan includes Test Prep, and we wanted the best in the world to help the athletes in our network. Kaplan and NCSA share the same vision of empowering student-athletes to be successful in college and in life.”
