UWorld, the Coppell-based global leader in online learning tools for high-stakes exams, has launched its new Digital SAT preparation course that will prepare students for the new digital format of the exam. The course is accessible on any device including smart phones, tablets, and desktop computers.
“We’re committed to delivering products that support the success of students and teachers with resources that keep pace with the ever-changing education landscape,” Chandra S. Pemmasani, M.D., founder and CEO of UWorld, said in a statement. “The online format of the SAT is a new frontier for students preparing to apply to colleges. Our new Digital SAT preparation course will help test-takers navigate this unknown territory and succeed on their exam day.”
Nearly 1,000 questions developed for the course
UWorld said its team of experts developed nearly 1,000 questions in the question bank that will prepare students for the new evolution of the Scholastic Aptitude Test.
A digitally native learning platform, UWorld is among the first online study resources to offer a question bank and realistic practice interface designed to simulate the real Digital SAT in both format and duration to best prepare students for the exam itself, the company said.
UWorld said the platform’s performance-based learning technology allows students to assess progress and focus their efforts on targeted practice to maximize efficiency and score potential. Concise and detailed explanations are provided for each answer option to help students to better understand the key concepts and strategies that will help them succeed.
Offering new study strategies for a new SAT test
The Digital SAT—offered this year for international students and starting in 2024 for U.S. students—requires new study strategies and question types, the company said. It uses dynamic questions that adapt to the student’s responses in real-time, which reduces the test duration by 45 minutes and allows for more efficient and precise measurement of individual abilities, UWorld said.
The new format has shorter reading passages, more direct questions, plus interactive features designed to make the math and reading sections more engaging and applicable to real-world scenarios.
New SAT exam enhances accessibility
The new exam enhances accessibility by providing customizable accommodations and provides more flexibility for scheduling and test administration, UWorld said. And it ensures that a wider range of students can participate in the exam, making the testing process more convenient.
UWorld said that its Digital SAT product is now available for a free seven-day trial and purchase via desktop and mobile.
Since its founding in 2003, UWorld said it has helped millions of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students prepare for their exams.
The company was named one of Dallas Innovates’ Future 50 companies in 2021.
In 2010, the company relocated from Baltimore to Irving with five employees. Its headquarters is now located at Cypress Waters in Coppell. UWorld has more than 350 employees in the U.S. and India.
