ACT and Kaplan Test Prep Expand Digital Product Suite

IOWA CITY, Iowa/NEW YORK, NY—Low-income students now have more free online learning resources to help them increase their academic readiness with the introduction of ACT® Rapid Review™ by Kaplan.

ACT Rapid Review by Kaplan is a suite of products offering all the benefits of livestreaming instruction and a comprehensive video library. Students can drop into a live virtual classroom or watch recorded video sessions, all taught by expert instructors.

ACT® Rapid Review™—All Access will be provided for free to all low-income students who register for the ACT test with a fee waiver. Last year more than 500,000 students qualified for a fee waiver on the ACT.

“We created ACT Rapid Review with the individual learner in mind,” said Chief Commercial Officer Suzana Delanghe. “We know that underserved learners—and low-income students in particular—will benefit from more flexible and engaging learning resources. This solution provides those students with live and interactive instruction and more opportunities to develop the skills and hone the knowledge they need to shine on test day and be successful in college and career.”

ACT Rapid Review offers three options to fit students’ unique needs and learning styles:

  • ACT® Rapid Review™ Live provides the last-minute content focus students need to be ready on test day, with access to a virtual classroom and live teaching from expert instructors.
  • ACT® Rapid Review™ On Demand features a video archive where students can access a library of top-quality recorded instruction during the months leading up to test day.
  • ACT Rapid Review—All Access bundles the live and archived video offerings of ACT Rapid Review Live and ACT Rapid Review On Demand. 

“We are excited to expand access to these best-in-class preparation options,” said Lee Weiss, vice president, Kaplan Test Prep. “With ACT Rapid Review by Kaplan, students receive exceptionally high-quality live and self-paced instruction that supports test takers incredibly well. We're so proud to support students on their college admission journey with highly engaging, interactive preparation for the ACT, and to make these offerings so affordable for all students and free for those who need them most."

In keeping with their shared goal to increase access for low-income students, ACT and Kaplan will provide the ACT Rapid Review—All Access offering for free to all students who register for the ACT test with a fee waiver. The Live, On Demand and All Access offerings are available to all other test takers for $40 to $99.

Kaplan Test Prep’s expert teachers will provide instruction for all courses in the suite. In addition, ACT will continue to offer ACT Online Prep to all students.

ACT and Kaplan first partnered in April 2016 to create the only official online ACT preparation program offering live, content-based instruction from teachers.
