Latest Edition Boasts New Features and Improved User Interface!

 

Ruthven, Iowa — The latest version of the most-loved and now more powerful online learning resource for academic and career development has arrived in Ruthven, Iowa. LearningExpress Library 3.0, from LearningExpress, LLC—known for basic skills improvement in reading, writing, math, and basic sciences and test preparation for academic and career testing—features a new tutorial and test-preparation platform, with easier access to skill-building resources and new features designed to help students and adults prepare for success in school and in life.

 

“LearningExpress Library 3.0 is an improvement of an already great resource available to the Ruthven community,” said Nathan Clark, library director at Ruthven Public Library. “These resources have helped millions of people improve their academic skills, achieve educational goals, prepare for careers, and successfully enter the job market.” He further explained that the online resource is subsidized by a special appropriation from the Iowa Legislature. Clark urges everyone to take advantage of the self-betterment and career advancement opportunities LearningExpress Library affords.

 

Upgraded features in LearningExpress Library 3.0 include a sleek new format and user interface that provides easier access to content. Centers—a collection of related materials organized around a theme or classification of user including School (grades 4–12), College, GED® Test Prep, College Preparation, Career, Adult Learning, and Recursos para Hispanhoblantes (Spanish) Centers—make it easier for adults and students to locate the resources they need when they need it. Patrons can search and access tutorials before signing into and downloading content to their secure personalized portfolios, “My Center.”

The new test preparation features includes learner, exam, and simulation modes. These timed and untimed practice modes, in which the user can view answers during testing, and practice in untimed mode to learn the material and in timed modes to improve test readiness, help students and adults prepare for a wide range of academic exams—such as the GED® test, COOP, HSPT®, SAT*, ACT®, AP*, PSAT/NMSQT*, ACCUPLACER®, ASSET®, and COMPASS®, 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.
