Florida Virtual School® and Shmoop Offer Students End-of-Course Help

Those End-of-Course (EOC) assessments can be a bear. They’re long, they’re tough, and they have plenty riding on them. Students can rest easy though—help is available. Florida Virtual School (FLVS®) has joined forces with Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, to get kids pumped and ready for these all-important exams.

All of Shmoop’s guides are aligned to Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for Algebra I, Geometry, Biology, Civics and U.S. History. These guides include test-specific strategies for each Florida EOC Assessment that are presented in a hilarious—yet informative—narrative.

Students can take diagnostic exams to assess their strengths, then brush up on problem areas with Shmoop’s extensive bank of practice problems. Each guide also comes with three full-length practice exams, as well as detailed answer explanations.

“We’re so pleased that our kids will be able to take advantage of Shmoop’s online materials as they prep for the EOCs,” stated Julie Young, president and CEO for Florida Virtual School. “Shmoop takes difficult, complex subjects and puts a fun, light-hearted spin on things, making it easy and enjoyable for our students to learn.”

“It’s very exciting that we have this opportunity to work with one of the foremost leaders in online education,” said Shmoop President and CEO Ellen Siminoff. “Obviously, we are passionate about expanding the capabilities of digital learning, and we’re proud to collaborate with such a trailblazer in the field.”

Students getting ready to tackle the EOCs can access Shmoop through their EOC courses and let Shmoop’s Algebra I guide explain why FOIL isn’t just something that’s wrapped over last night’s meatloaf, or check out the Biology guide to find out more about pea flowers than they ever wanted to know.
