Testing & Education Reference Center Gets Impressive New Look

Beginning on August 22, 2017, Testing & Education Reference Center users will experience a new interface that’s easy to navigate, offers multiple access points to content, and is uniform across the general site, online courses, and practice tests. Best of all, the resource is now optimized for any screen size and on any device.

Additionally, students and patrons will welcome the new and updated content, such as:

  • New ACT eBook
  • HiSET Practice Test
  • Master Military Flight Aptitude Test (this replaces the Officer Candidate book)
  • Master Catholic 2018 Test
  • Master DSST Vol 1 Test

The exemplary content supports high school, undergraduate, and graduate students as well as individuals choosing career paths or working on citizenship studies.

The newly designed home page provides users with two paths to specific content. The two-path approach addresses different styles of users.

Two access points to help users easily find the content they need
Addressing individuals who are familiar with Testing & Education Reference Center and/or know what they need, there is a simple drop down by student/user type. Under each type, one will find categories of content.
For those who are new to Testing & Education Reference Center or whom aren’t quite sure of what they are searching for, a short sequence of selections/questions are posed to help the user locate the needed content. At the highest level, one is queried about student type.
For this example, let’s select a college student.
Next, the college student can select from a list of activities of interest. In this example, we’ll select Practice for a College Entrance Exam.
Presented with content related to a college student, the user makes a choice. In this example, the ACT Prep is selected.
Following a brief introduction, the user is presented with all content related to the ACT: Practice Tests, Online Courses and Online Books on the left. Other related content is found on the right hand site. In this example let’s look at the ACT Online Courses.

Testing & Education Reference Center continues to be the most reliable test prep, college readiness, and career development resource available for students and job seekers alike.
