The Tennessee Electronic Library (TEL) now includes the latest version of LearningExpress Library, an online test preparation resource for academic and career development. LearningExpress Library offers materials that provide basic skills improvement in reading, writing, math, and basic sciences test preparation for academic and career testing. This newly-updated version features easier access to skill-building resources and new features designed to help students and adults prepare for success in school and in life.
"Thousands of Tennesseans use the test prep resources in the Tennessee Electronic Library to improve their academic skills, prepare for careers, and successfully enter the job market," said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. "This new version provides even more features and resources for everyone in our state."
LearningExpress Library 3.0 boasts a sleek new format with content organized into centers, including school (grades 4–12), college preparation, career, and computer skills centers. This makes it easier for adults and students to locate the resources they need when they need them. TEL users can search for what they need before registering for free accounts and downloading content to their secure personalized portfolios.
The new test preparation features includes learner, exam, and simulation modes.
"These options let you decide how to take the test, either untimed to learn the material, or timed to improve test readiness," said Wendy Cornelisen, TEL coordinator.
The practice tests help students and adults prepare for a wide range of exams - including the newly-updated GED® test, SAT*, ACT®, career certification tests such as NCLEX-RN®, Praxis I® and II®, and more - and build skills in math, reading, writing, and basic sciences.
LearningExpress tutorials have always helped learners improve basic skills with answer feedback and recommended learning paths. The new tutorial design provides even more feedback and guidance, including unit and lesson reviews, pre- and post-tutorial assessment tests and quizzes, and study plans with links to content for additional learning. LearningExpress Library 3.0 also includes test preparation e-books that can be downloaded to a variety of Internet-connected devices.
All of these resources are free for Tennesseans with Internet access. Go to the TEL website, www.tntel.info, and click on Test Prep to access these extremely beneficial learning resources for work and school - anytime, anywhere.
