Taking an ACT exam is a critical step in getting into college and can have a major impact on a student’s future. With so much riding on the outcome, the right preparation is essential. Students must know the material, but they must also know how to take an exam the right way. This means managing their time efficiently, checking their work and dealing with any test anxiety.
Few students, however, are taught these skills, and many make test-taking errors that kill their scores. These students have no idea they’re making these test-taking errors, so they don’t fix them, and they don’t understand why they don’t improve. This can damage a student’s confidence and lead them to believe that they’re “just not a good test taker.”
But any student can become a great test taker; they just need the right feedback to improve. Unfortunately, regular mock exams can’t give them this feedback. They can’t measure where students need to improve as test takers; they can only measure a student’s ability on material. These exams can give students a false impression of their readiness for their exam, and it can lead to frustration and despair when students see their scores.
Only Biometric Edge prepares students for every aspect of taking an exam. We give students feedback on both material knowledge and test-taking skill. We show you if a student is managing their time correctly and checking their work. We show you how anxiety is affecting their performance. We can even show you if a student is rereading passages when answering reading questions. This information can be the difference between a student going to their first-choice college or their safety school.
How it Works
Biometric Edge’s unique technology measures pulse and blink rate. We record time per question and track eye movement, all to show students if they’re taking their exam the right way. Biometric Edge’s online mock exams are also convenient and adapt to your schedule. After your child’s exam, their results are available within seconds. You’ll receive:
- Performance by topic
- Performance by level of difficulty
- Time spent on each question
- Average time spent on each question (of everyone who’s taken that exam)
- Video explanations for each question
- Pulse and blink rates
- Eye-tracking report
- A chart showing each time your child answered a question and if they checked their work
- A copy of the full exam
With this data, students can easily identify their strengths and weaknesses and fix any test-taking mistakes. By getting this accurate assessment of their abilities, students can enter their exams relaxed and confident.
