According to a report from an article entitled: “SAT Test: Another Drain on the Family Budget” that appeared in Fiscal Times, the average family spends more than $ 2,000 to boost their children’s SAT and ACT scores. A $ 2,000 investment for a child may be not a hardship for some parents, but it could be a huge burden for many parents who can’t afford it. Therefore the SAT scores of children are highly correlated to family income. In a recent study by Emory University, the wealth gap is ever increasing with $ 1087.51 being spent by the bottom 10% earners to improve their children’s test scores and $ 5494.95 or nearly 5 X the amount being spent by the top 10% earners (Dallas Morning News). In other words family income causes a different educational outcome and opportunity.
SSAMCAST is a SAT Knowledge Sharing Program developed by three UC Berkeley students that seeks to resolve this inequity of educational opportunities by family income. The program is built upon the philosophy that “education should be affordable and easily accessible to everyone,” according to company founder Mr. Inje Cho. Cho has ten years experience in education and Learning Management Technology (LMS technology) and was a student at Seoul National University. SSAMCAST was first introduced on June 29th 2015 at the Philadelphia International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). Over 1,000 people attended SSAMCAST’s exhibition, including many teachers and personnel from schools and educational companies, all showing great interest in SSAMCAST.
In addition, SSAMCAST invited students from 10 of the most famous universities on the West Coast and interviewed them about the strategies and the successful habits they utilized in their SAT studies and the preparatory programs that they used in high school and college.
For this first release of SSAMACST, Teracle, the company that developed this program, worked with several UC Berkeley students with 2,300+ SAT scores and filmed SAT lectures in Math, Reading, Science, Math IC/IIC, and Physics. This content is designed to help educationally disadvantaged students in their SAT studies.
