GradeAssess is your partner in preparing for standardized tests. With so many prep books and resources available, we chose not to reinvent the wheel, but rather to extract the most out of those resources by providing instant and detailed analysis on practice test performance. Doing great in math but struggling with reading comprehension? With GradeAssess, you can focus on the specific areas and skills that need more work, rather than mindlessly taking one practice test after another and seeing little to no progress. Our Knowledge Branch, which breaks down all of the skills tested on each assessment, will guide you in what to study and make the most out of your limited time.
To take a standardized test in GradeAssess, simply obtain a physical book that is listed in our system (e.g. Barron’s, Kaplan, Princeton Review) and submit your answers online—like an online Scantron but much more powerful. Once you submit your answers, we’ll provide the rest and instantly get you started on your journey to achieving your academic goals.
