ELA Skills-based Test Prep Student App

What is one thing students always seem to have with them?

Their phones!

Why not use that to our advantage?! This ELA student app is an excellent resource to review skills that tend to be some of the most difficult questions on standardized assessments. Students will work through the content on this app as they prepare for the upcoming test and can create their own personal learning plan based on teacher requirements or their data from a previous test. This app can be downloaded onto students' phones or can be viewed on any device in the same way.
