TRECA Launchpad

Knock your test scores out of the galaxy by attending in-person and online test prep sessions!

Prepare for take-off!

Spring testing is just a couple months away! To help get ready, we’re offering TRECA Digital Academy students the option to attend test prep sessions. Sessions will be available to students in grades 3-6 and grades 7-12, and will be both online and in-person at several locations around the state. Oh - and did we mention you’ll earn some pretty cool rewards too?!

Incentives

In-Person Sessions

In-person test prep sessions will be held throughout the State of Ohio to accommodate as many families as possible. Below you can find a list of locations and the session dates and times. Each student who attends will receive a $5 gas card to help with transportation cost. We’ll also provide a meal for each student, because a full stomach makes for a strong brain! *One gas card and meal per student only.

FAQs

Yes, test prep sessions count towards your total school day. However, keep in mind that you should still be working in your classes so that you are making progress towards completing them. You are still required to complete the 5 hours and 10 minutes per school day.

While our K-2nd Graders will not be testing in the spring, they are more than welcome to participate in the online solo missions in Education Galaxy. The online and in-person group sessions are only for the intended grade levels. Please note that K-2nd Graders will not be eligible for incentives. 

Food will only be provided for students to help fuel their brain!

Attending online sessions will allow you to earn a t-shirt after 20 hours and an entry into a raffle for a Kindle for each hour spent. Attending in-person sessions allows you to earn a t-shirt after attending 3 sessions, headphones after 6 sessions, and a Kindle after 8 sessions.

Any time spent in online sessions (Group, Solo, or Teacher-Led Missions) will be added together. You will receive one entry for each hour spent. You do not have to spend a full hour in a single session in order to earn an entry.

Rewards will be mailed to students after all sessions have ended, likely late April or early May.

The Solo Missions are time spent within an online test prep program. The Group Missions are live sessions in Jigsaw with other students. They will be led by a TRECA staff member.

Group Missions will be at 1pm on Tuesday’s for grades 3-6 and Thursday’s for grades 7-12. Teacher-Led Missions will be throughout the week at times set by teachers. The Solo Missions can be completed at any time during the week, even on weekends!

Before a session begins, we will post an announcement in Brightspace with the link to open the Group Mission. The same link will be used to get into all Group Missions.

Webcams and the use of the microphone are optional. There will be a chat box available.

Yes, we will record Group Missions so that you can watch the recording, but to earn an entry into the raffle you will need to be at the live session.
