Danville High School Utilizing College Readiness Program

photoDanville High School is committed to ensuring students are academically ready for college and this year the school is adding another tool to the toolbox. The high school is utilizing an online program called The College Equipped Readiness Tool (CERT) to help students prepare for the ACT.
CERT offers students ACT-like assessments designed to maximize career and college opportunities. All CERT tests are aligned with Career and College Readiness Standards and match the format of the ACT exam.

“CERT gives students an opportunity to compare their performance to national benchmarks while they still have time to make improvements — if necessary. This is all at no cost to our students,” said Beth Gooch, guidance counselor at Danville High School.

Upon completion of practice tests and quizzes in the four ACT tested subject areas of English, reading, math and science, students and teachers receive detailed assessment reports about individual student performance.

In addition to practice assessment, CERT provides remedial instruction to students through instructional video lessons. Online Exam Room and Study Hall features individual student performance feedback and video answer explanations for every test question.

Parents of students in Danville High School are encouraged to ask their students about the CERT program. More information can be found at https://certforschools.com/about
