PREPSKILLS fills a niche by preparing students to write Ontario
private and independent school admission examinations, including the
Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT).
The unique strength of our program is based on the simple
but crucial fact that students learn in different ways. Our program is
customized to meet the needs of students in Grades 5 to 10 preparing for
admission to the school of their choice. The focus is to relieve anxiety,
increase confidence, and build valuable skills for a student to use
long after the examination is over. Our goal is to provide the PREPSKILLS
edge... by inspiring students to reach their full potential!
Hostedware services have been instrumental in providing the
development of our online computerized diagnostic test, COMPUSSAT. The
test is organized for Lower and Upper level students so that
it parallels the sections and format of the official SSAT,
including time limits. The main purpose of the diagnostic
test is to help the teacher and student discover weaknesses
and strengths in terms of strategy, content, skills and time
management. Parents are provided with detailed progress reports.
Teachers work with students to devise a plan to ensure that
each child takes the necessary steps in order to maximize
his/her scoring potential.
A comment from a parent:
The innovative on-line COMPUSSAT
diagnostic test is user-friendly. The analysis of the test,
providing scores and detailing strengths and weaknesses helped
us participate in the process by going over specific areas
with Kelly at home.

This "real-time" feature is without doubt a strong
selling point that able to compile important statistical information and client profiling
as a result of the efficiency provided by downloading the student
profile section of the test as an Excel document.
By using Hosted Test, we have realized the benefits of increased productivity and reduction in costs. We no longer require
the physical space, staff or extensive time needed to administer our diagnostic
test at an actual facility. Most importantly, as educators, we
are most appreciative of the "no marking" involved... a teacher's
dream! All we have to do is provide the login and invite students to take
the test... Hosted Test does the rest! We value the flexibility and effectiveness that Hosted Test provides.
Hostedware has exceeded our expectations in terms of fulfilling
an integral part of our PREPSKILLS model. And we are grateful
for their professionalism in making the necessary accommodations
to meet our needs!
We look forward to doing business with you in the future.
