Mock Tests & Analytics

open quote

There are a lot of diagnostic tests out there. It's relatively easy for any educator to create a diagnostic that includes a certain number of geometry problems, the same number of algebra problems, and then claim that a student is better at one than the other. Our BASE and PACE reports don't just tell students what they're "bad at." Our reports show students where they can shine and how to really read the secrets of the tests. Plus, you get a projected score and all those other typical diagnostic test features.

Not just diagnostics – learning tools!

Having helped thousands of students worldwide to improve their SAT & ACT scores, we have learned that the most powerful tool for increasing scores is understanding the tests and understanding yourself as a test-taker. How do students respond to… the time pressure? The anxiety at the start that fades into fatigue? The weird question formats? The strange mix of seemly simple questions tossed in with some that seem almost unreadable?

Knower’s BASE and PACE exams are special, because we analyze all of the student data from the perspective of strategy and technique – not just content. We designed our diagnostics to show student how their decision making during the test results in certain outcomes, and to show our instructors how to fine tune their approach and curriculum to maximize effectiveness.

KNOW the Test SAT/ACT Mock exams help students:

  • compare the SAT vs the ACT
  • gain experience with the timed test environment
  • learn about the format of the exams
  • reflect upon their strategic decision making during the test
  • understand how the SAT & ACT are scored

Diagnostic Score Reports

Designed to increase the effectiveness of ongoing study

Students who complete our BASE or PACE exams can also purchase a detailed diagnostic score report that  provides insight into the student’s use of test-taking strategy during the exam and targets areas of focus for additional coaching.

Our detailed BASE & PACE reports analyze student results according to a variety of specific metrics that pinpoint strengths, weaknesses, strategic decision making, and confidence. As students review their detailed diagnostic results, they will see graphs and suggestions that encourage them to reflect on the decisions they made during the exam. The report is designed to be a learning tool that helps students draw connections between their decisions on the test and the score they received. They will also see which question formats and content areas are strengths which they should focus on demonstrating during the exam, and which content areas are weaknesses that deserve targeted attention in their studies.

Continuing Exercises

Curated lists of practice problems in areas selected by the instructor to build content and skills

Available with our PACE report, this is a self-study option for motivated students, or a valuable asset to improve the effectiveness of one-to-one coaching.
