**SAT Practice For Students, By Students** was created by students, for fellow students to use! We drew our inspiration for this project from witnessing - first hand, as high school students - our classmates neglecting to study for standardized tests because of a fear of long, tenuous and boring study sessions. Our goal is to engage teens and make them just a bit more excited to be studying for a test that has the potential to influence so much! There are innumerable websites out there that offer SAT help, but most tend to employ techniques and writing styles that are just not kid-friendly, and which - frankly - put us to sleep! This 'professional' tone is often misplaced in SAT guides and textbooks, written by companies who just don't get it! This doesn't encourage the user to continue studying, but rather does the opposite, encouraging students to put down the textbook and browse social media or Netflix for some much-needed entertainment. That is why we created **SAT Practice For Students, By Students**. Our idea started out small, as we noticed many of our friends skipping out on studying for the SAT and other standardized tests. We wanted to create a website that would encourage them to study for the SAT or any other standardized test in a way that will keep them coming back.
What It Does
**SAT Practice For Students, By Students** was created to provide a fun and engaging method of studying for one of the most important tests that you will take in your life, the SAT. Our website is a way of being able to study for the SAT and have all of the resources that you need, all on one website. From vocabulary to reading, writing and math, our site includes features to help our users practice at ease. Each page includes important study materials and tips including links to outside resources that can help individuals further prepare for the SAT. The website also features a game that tests math and vocabulary knowledge based on questions retrieved directly from The College Board, and responds in memes whenever the question is answered!

What's Next For 'SAT Practice For Students, By Students'?
We plan to further develop our game and website by adding new aspects such as more gaming and review options as well as flashcard tools, and perhaps even transferring our website into app form, so it can be accessible on-the-go and on the school bus. We also are looking to buy a domain in order to make our site more widely accessible to high school students everywhere, because currently only our classmates, friends and family know about our site and are able to use it for review.
