MINNEAPOLIS – May 2, 2011 – PLATO Learning, a leading provider of education technology solutions, is introducing the PLATO Beyond High School Library, a comprehensive suite of online courses designed to prepare students for success on leading college entrance and placement exams, as well as for career certification and work skills exams.
“PLATO Learning’s new Beyond High School Library suite of courses is a cost-effective solution enabling schools to prepare students for their next step in life, whether it’s college, vocational school, military or career,” said Jamie Candee, vice president of product and marketing for PLATO Learning. “Preparing students to be college and career ready is something we’ve been doing long before it was an industry catchphrase, and the Beyond High School Library is just the latest offering from PLATO to support college and career readiness.”
The PLATO Beyond High School Library is the first online learning solution to bundle together instruction for multiple tests, including ACT, SAT, ACCUPLACER®, COMPASS®, WorkKeys®, National Career Readiness Certificate, ASVAB and GED, all in one library, allowing schools to maximize resources and do more with less. The courses in the library are specifically aligned to each exam’s objectives and include multiple assessments to provide meaningful feedback for learners and clearly illustrate measurable progress.
“Effective preparation is key to mastering any test, especially college and career entrance and placement exams that are critical to students’ success after high school,” Candee said. “Because our comprehensive suite is delivered through an online platform, the Beyond High School Library can be accessed anywhere, at any time, resulting in an extremely convenient and accessible program for every learner.”
PLATO Beyond High School Library was designed by dedicated education experts, who created a “blueprint” for each test’s objectives to ensure the courses aligned with those objectives while challenging and engaging students. Beyond High School Library is now available as a comprehensive suite on a subscription basis. To learn more, visit www.plato.com or call 1.800.44.PLATO.
