Socrato: Online Test-Prep Materials Uploaded by Web Users

April 18, 2008 – Socrato, a Massacusetts-based company, is offering a free, crowd-sourced test-prep service online, TechCrunch reports. Educators can upload sample test questions and study guides in various formats, and students can then use them for practice at home.

The site currently has test-prep questions for national academic standardized tests (SAT, GRE, LSAT, etc.), as well as for the U.S. citizenship test and individual course exams. In an upcoming release, Socrato will “be able to track how students deliberate on questions by analyzing which answers they cross off first,” TechCrunch says. —Catherine Rampell
