ACT® English Scores Soar for Seven Mississippi High Schools Study Shows
BROOKHAVEN, Miss., June 4, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Jumpstart Test Prep today released the English ACT results from seven Mississippi high schools that completed an English review for nearly 800 juniors who prepared for the state administered February 2019 ACT® exam (American College Testing). Following completion of Jumpstart's ACT English prep review, more than 57 percent of the students had an average ACT English score improvement of +3.15 points over their best prior attempt. North Pike High School led the group with more than 75 percent of its students improving their English scores by an average of +3.94 points.
"My students did very well with the program, and I feel that the review was a good supplement for what we are doing in the classroom," said Scott Hallmark, Principal at North Pike High School. "We met with the teachers to ensure the proper implementation of the program, and it was used immediately before our juniors tested on the ACT in February. It was imbedded within our class day, short modules that could be done in the class. It's a good program, and I am very pleased with its results, and I would like to continue using it."
Student feedback on the program is strong. Camryn White, a junior student at Bogue Chitto High School improved +7.00 points (24 to 31) in English after completing the Jumpstart Test Prep ACT English review. "The (Jumpstart) review helped me review things we hadn't learned in years, so it helped me remember things like grammar skills," White said.
