The LAS Difference

  • 01

    Initial Consultation

    LAS services begin with an initial consultation. This is the first step in developing an individual education plan. It is used to clarify learning objectives and measurable goals. It provides an opportunity to discuss academic experiences, expectations, test-taking skills, and more.

    The initial consultation is a crucial starting point for academic and professional development. It prioritizes time for questions and answers and provides an opportunity to cultivate a working alliance. Following the initial consultation, LAS writes an individual education plan with instructions for daily workflow and progress tracking.

    Pretesting and Error Analysis

    Pretesting and error analysis are the first steps in LAS Test Prep Plans for standardized and classroom tests. The pretest establishes a baseline score from which to measure progress during test preparation while the error analysis is used to clarify content knowledge, test-taking skills, and areas for opportunity.

    LAS Test Prep Plans combine achievement information with self-reflective strategies. In combination with the exam content outline, they are used to prioritize study goals, verify timelines, and determine test readiness.
