Recently, Long Island Regents Prep teamed up with PrepIT, an online test prep platform and marketplace where students and teachers can purchase and sell review materials. We’re licensing our AP US History, AP Macroeconomics, APPsychology, AP Calculus AB, and AP Biology material to PrepIT, and they’re available for purchase at prepIT.io.

Their Product

PrepIT is a web based test preparation platform that serves students, teachers, and course authors.  Gathering meaningful data on student performance is a time consuming task for any teacher.  With the PrepIT platform teachers can create review courses for any subject and share it with their students.  As students interact with the course, data is aggregated and shared back to the classroom teacher and students, providing guidance on areas to focus more attention.  In addition to these features, teachers and students are able to buy pre-made courses for a variety of subjects.  These courses have been written by approved authors.  Last year we tested our data tools with 4,000 AP Government students and 150 teachers.

Their Team

Mike Clancy

Mike Clancy is an AP Government and AP US History teacher in Muscatine, Iowa.  He has been teaching for nine years and has experience at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.  His idea for PrepIT was inspired by his students love of class trivia games and the teachers need to prioritize review time on student weaknesses. Before teaching in Iowa Mike taught internationally in Vietnam, and also served as a Teach for America corps member in Kansas City, Missouri. Mike received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Iowa and a Masters in Education from Rockhurst University in Missouri.  Mike also completed a graduate certificate program in educational technology from SUNY, Buffalo.

TJ

TJ McDonaldhas been working in education since 1999 after earning an undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa. He

moved to North Carolina in 2001 and worked in the training group for high tech companies such as IBM and Lenovo.  Eventually he became a certified program manager, PMP, at Global Knowledge which is the world’s largest learning solutions provider. During this time his client list included Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Cisco, Citibank, and the New York Stock Exchange. While in North Carolina he also earned an MBA from NC State with a concentration in entrepreneurship and technology.

Over the past decade, the number of students taking AP exams has nearly doubled. Student participation in the Advanced Placement program has increased in every subject across every demographic. Simply put, students are taking more AP exams in an effort to prepare for and gain admission to selective colleges. According to the College Board, “a broader, more diverse group of students has benefited from expanded access to Advanced Placement. In addition, more students than ever before are succeeding on AP Exams…. Since 2003, there has been a 7.9 point increase in the percentage of U.S. public high school graduates scoring a 3 or higher on an AP Exam, with 17 states exceeding the national average for this percentage change.” AP courses not only provide students with a more rigorous curriculum, but they allow students the potential to earn college credits.

Long Island Regents Prep will once again offer AP Review Classes at Farmingdale State College. All AP review courses are developed and taught by experienced NYS-certified teachers. This year’s courses will be held on May 3rd and May 9th. To register for classes, visit our website. For your own reference, below is the 2015 AP Exam Schedule. Good luck!
