Conifer High School
12th Grader: Michael Mosey
On: Precision Prep
|The Precision Prep course I went through helped prepare me for taking the ACT test. It gave me clear examples of what to be prepared for and the range of difficulty that I needed to study to get my desired score. The different tasks and practice English and Reading sections were very similar to what was on the actual test, and I feel it assisted me in achieving the score that I got.|
Focus on ACT/SAT Benchmarks
Working on Standards-base Growth Plans
This success triggered the launch of Precision Prep, a teacher-led after-school tutoring program for students with college in their future.

Better: The focus is on growing students relative to ACT/SAT benchmarks - not merely testing strategies/techniques. Objective growth indicators are always visible to students and parents.
Cheaper: Parents routinely pay over $500 for Test Prep classes that produce no objective indicators of a student's actual readiness.
More Sustainable: It's a continuous improvement process involving the school's teachers and students at all grade levels; versus the "Hail Mary" option that Test Prep firms offer 11th graders.
Our vision is to help teachers reclaim their voice on behalf of their students; independent, yet supportive, of the educational system to which they belong; and, in contrast to Test Prep firms that skirt root issues pertaining to college readiness.
Their tutoring focus shifts from helping students do their homework to helping students grow, as measured by the same benchmarks that their students' college readiness will ultimately be based upon.
Precision Prep is also developmental for teachers. The methods/tools reinforce teacher understandings of student performance benchmarks and will elevate their conversations with students, parents, and each other.
The toolset they use allow teachers to analyze the quality of their own assessment proficiencies and help them quantitatively monitor their professional growth as standards-centered educators.
Student's Benchmark-centered Dashboard
Students create plans that focus on specific benchmarks and mastery levels based upon their unique needs. Student, Teachers, and Parents monitor growth in real-time.
Cost: zero. Risk: zero. Potential Benefit: transformational.
Schools can introduce innovative standards-based methods without incurring the cost, and perhaps facing the resistance, that operational change often involves. As the conversations among students, parents, and teachers begin to change and as the benefits of these methods/tools become visible, schools can easily transition them in-house.
