Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's Steck-Vaughn Test Preparation for the 2014 GED(R) Test Provides Adult Learners with Powerful Digital Prep Tool

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) announced the launch of a powerful hybrid test preparation tool to support adult learners as they study for the highly anticipated new GED test series. Steck-Vaughn Test Preparation for the 2014 GED(R) Test, a collaboration between HMH and Paxen Learning Corporation scheduled to launch in January 2014. Rather than employing the traditional static, content-based approach of other prep programs, HMH's Steck-Vaughn Test Preparation for the 2014 GED(R) Test gets to the heart of the GED exam by emphasizing concepts and the development of essential reading and thinking skills, allowing learners to ascend quickly to more cognitively complex skills. Built upon curriculum developed by Paxen Learning, the accelerated methodology prepares students for the rigors of the new GED test series in a fraction of the time--usually a matter of only a few weeks. HMH's close alignment with the GED Testing Service means that Steck-Vaughn Test Preparation for the 2014 GED(R) Test materials reflect the 2014 GED series and correlate with Common Core State Standards. With digital courses available via HMH's online learning platform, students can practice in an environment that mirrors the new computer-based test and take advantage of customizable lessons and performance reporting to aid in concept mastery. Student books, practice tests, assessment tools and instructor resources create a comprehensive suite of learning solutions that address the needs of all types of learners.
