Whether an individual agrees with the idea of standardized testing or not, the reality is that there are standardized tests that certain individuals need to take, and pass, in order to accomplish specific goals. Most high school-aged children need to take and pass the state mandated end-of-course (EOC) exams in order to receive credit for specific mathematics classes.
More information about these requirements can be found on the Florida Department of Education website: http://www.fldoe.org/faq/. At Math Doctor we can help students prepare for the EOC prior to taking the exam, or if a student did not pass their EOC, summer is a terrific time to go back over the material prior to retaking the test in the fall.
High school students wishing to go to college will need to take either the ACT or SAT. At Math Doctor we work with individuals or groups in order to prepare for either of these tests. Information about the ACT can be found at http://www.actstudent.org/. We also offer SAT Boot Camps for students wishing to take the SAT, specifically. The camps consist of 4 days of instruction/practice with professional educators that are very familiar with not only the test, but strategies and tips for taking the tests.
There is two hours of math instruction followed by two hours of Reading/Writing instruction. These camps are offered throughout the year prior to the test dates. An individual can sign up for just math, just reading/writing or both. More information about the SAT can be found at http://sat.collegeboard.org/.
Adults wishing to return to college after being out of school, may need a refresher prior to taking a math placement exam. We offer group or individual refreshers on high school mathematics. We also work with individuals attempting the CLEP exam in order to receive college credit. More information about the CLEP can be found at http://clep.collegeboard.org/exam.
We also assist individuals wishing to go into one of the uniformed services. The military requires individuals to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) According to the official ASVAB website, “the ASVAB is a multiple-aptitude battery that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military. It is administered annually to more than one million military applicants, high school, and post-secondary students.” More information on the ASVAB can be found at http://official-asvab.com/.
