The changes to the SARA app, created by Ray Dass for extra PSAT practice, may not be visible to students, but the app’s background has improved. The app has moved to a larger platform to support the growing audience of students.
“The app’s feel has improved from the student and teacher’s perspective because it is now faster and better than ever,” said digital program director of the SARA app Lina Gonzalez.
Thirty sophomores and juniors were invited to test out the app Aug. 30 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. The students were instructed to download the new version and create a fake account. They completed a course and looked for any glitches within the app. In exchange for their time, the students were rewarded with free pizza and drinks.
In addition to the improved background, the program also launched a Level 3, which supposedly includes PSAT-style questions much more challenging than any other level. Only students at American Heritage received this new feature.
The app is now available to download on the app store.
