Rising Junior Exam: Proficiency Exam CAAP

This site contains information on grammatical, mechanical, and rhetorical concerns that are tested on the Writing Portion of the Rising Junior Exam taken by all sophomore college students enrolled in the South Dakota regental universities. While the information will be of assistance to South Dakota students preparing for the test, they will also be beneficial to any writers or students of writing as the materials contained in the pages cover the range of information taught in a typical college level composition class.

I actually used this site for teaching a three day unit.
I teach high school English – Grade 11.
The materials provided on this site were useful in teaching English skills to my
students as they prepare to take the ACT. The materials were current and on
target for what students need to know to increase their scores on the ACT.
StudentsÂ’ learning was enhanced which was indicated by the increase in knowledge
demonstrated by the use of a pretest / posttest. Students found it easy to
navigate through the site. They indicated that they will peruse the site on
their own to further prepare for the ACT not only for the English section but
also for the other three sections as well.

Technical Remarks:

I really appreciated how easy it was to get around in the site. Having the
opportunity to take several practice tests online was beneficial. Students
prefer working on a computer as opposed to taking paper / pencil tests.
