CASC Offers ACT Prep

The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) at Carl Albert State College (CASC) has purchased limited quantities of access to a revolutionary method to prepare for the ACT.

CASC EOC Coordinator Kelly Kellogg explained that MasteryPrep has created an online ACT prep program that allows students to prepare for the ACT at their own pace and on their own time schedule. The ACT Mastery program with the workbook implementation produced at least a three-point composite score gain, and similar results are predicted with the new online version.

Kellogg also shared that using ACT Mastery Online, the student will learn the most frequently tested content on the ACT test and develop the skills and strategies necessary to be successful. This online curriculum adapts as the student learns. It will keep track of which skills the student struggles with and will give more practice in those areas while avoiding extra instruction or practice in the areas already mastered.

Educational Opportunity Center is one of the TRIO programs housed at Carl Albert State College, and is funded 100 percent by the U.S. Department of Education. The EOC program budget is $510,799 and serves 1,675 participants.

If interested in the ACT prep program, call 918-647-1396 or see an EOC advisor at the CASC Poteau campus in Hemphill Hall offices 103, 104, and 140. At Sallisaw, contact EOC Academic Advisor Tajuania Miller in the Mayo Center office 8004 or call 918-775-6977.
