Beginning in 2015-2016, Huron Valley Lutheran High School has provided your child with access to Method Test Prep, an online course that helps students build their math, reading, writing, and SAT/ACT test prep skills. Students can listen to math, verbal and writing tutorials and each tutorial is accompanied by a quiz to test student mastery. The program is highly adaptive and keeps track of a student’s strengths and weaknesses. Students have access to a large pool of practice questions and receive instant feedback upon completion of each question. This feedback includes easy-to-understand explanations. In addition, students are able to take two ACT prep tests. Parents and students will be provided a link and passwords to monitor and prepare for the test. Method Test Prep is a good fit for any type of student. The website can be accessed at any time of day or night most convenient to the student.
