Shmoop offers prep for every AP® exam in existence (plus hundreds of other exams), and JTHS used more of 'em than you can count on your fingers and toes combined. The results? An 82% pass rate and 36% increase in tests taken.
Not too shabby.
Need more convincing? Here are some stats.
After implementing Shmoop:
- 21 out of 25 AP® Calculus students scored a 5
- AP® French Language and Culture class went from zero (no students taking the exam) to hero: every student completed the AP exam and half scored a 3 or higher
- AP® French teacher Karen Kozlowski noted, "There was a direct correlation to how much the students used Shmoop and their scores on the actual AP exam." Direct correlations are nice, aren't they?
Kozlowski summed it up: "We love the humor! It makes mastering difficult material so much fun! It doesn't take long for the students to realize how much more confident they feel after using Shmoop."
And as they say, confidence makes perfect. Or something like that.
