Securing tertiary education in the Philippines is the key to getting a stable job. The costs for college entrance test review packages in universities are offered expensively, making such commodities not easily affordable for families who are in the bottom of the income class.
In response to this, Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) will be launching Test Hero, an online test preparation platform, on July 16, 2018 in the NCR region, in partnership with various participating schools in Makati, Manila, and Quezon City.
An initiative of the DigiBayanihan program, Test Hero aims to help graduating high school students review for college entrance tests. Specifically, this platform mainly targets Grades 11 and 12 students who are also preparing to take the National Achievement Test for Grade 12 (NAT12). Test Hero is also beneficial for Grade 9 students who are looking to take the National Career Assessment Exam (NCAE) and Grade 10 students reviewing for their National Achievement Test (NAT10). ALS learners can also prepare for their accreditation and equivalency test using the portal.
Since its introduction during the DigiBayanihan Relaunch last October 24, 2017, Test Hero has continuously evolved as a platform for social impact in the education sector.
As of present time, Test Hero contains over 3,000 practice test questions that students can use to review for their entrance exams. It also features varied test sets, which students can practice on, and solutions that will guide users to arrive at the correct answer. Test-taking tips on how to ace exams are also available in the portal.
“I hope that the launching of Test Hero will allow the youth to never get left behind in achieving their dreams. I also hope that through this online platform, more members of the youth are given the opportunities they deserve. Together, let’s start working on their success by helping them prepare for their tests,” Jordianne Gomez, Test Hero Project Manager, shared.
