What is PrepU?




Focused Study Time, Better Results

Invented by instructors at UCLA, PrepU is an adaptive quizzing environment that is tailored to the unique abilities and needs of each student, delivering the right content for each student at the right time. This makes studying fun and efficient and it makes learning fast.

PrepU’s personalized, adaptive approach ensures that for every topic, students are given an individually-tailored sequence of questions with difficulty levels that match their ability. Quizzes are challenging at exactly the right level, every time, which helps students master  Advanced PlacementTM (AP*) course content and prepare for exams by focusing study time where they need the most help. The PrepU academic software also provides instructors with valuable, comparative data on their students’ progress, understanding of key concepts, usage patterns and learning gains.

At the heart of the PrepU educational software are thousands of finely-tuned, high-quality items across the full range of Bloom’s taxonomy levels with precisely calibrated difficulty ratings based on thousands of actual student responses. Items are continually class tested, analyzed for quality, and edited accordingly. Prep U is currently available in three subject areas - AP US History, AP Psychology and AP Chemistry.
