Thanks for using Khan Academy! We’re excited to hear your feedback. This community is a place for THE MOST AMAZING LEARNERS in the world to hang out, meet each other and talk about the Khan Academy experience. We want all of you to experience awesomeness during your stay here, so please remember a few things while posting:

  • No bad language and no rude gestures, seriously.
  • Be awesome to each other.
  • Don’t post anything that isn’t yours to post.
  • Don’t let your evil self from a parallel universe post as you.
  • Check to see if someone has already posted an idea that is similar to yours. Add a comment to their idea rather than creating your own.
  • Don’t spam.
  • Keep each post to one specific new idea. Don’t try and talk about 2 or more ideas in one post.
  • When you want to make the platform better, be specific. We need to know where the problem happened, what you expected to happen and what went wrong. For more information on how to best post feedback, read this article.

Any posts found to be in violation of any of the above will be taken down, probably by grumpy math wizards.

General test prep discussion

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.

        • There should be a section of Aptitude Test Preparation.

          All the aptitude tests preparation across the globe, test basic math skills, logical reasoning, deductions, etc. Khan Academy can really be utilized to build a platform for the learners to improve their aptitude using the Math resources.
          Also, a section of logical reasoning, date interpretation can be added.
          I really feel that KA can set up an excellent platform for Aptitude Skills.

          • CAT and IIT entrance exams need exceptional math skills. KA rich resources should be utilised to prepare a platform for these exams!

            IIT and CAT exams are most prestigous entrance exams in India. A student really needs exceptional Math skills to crack them. KA has rich resources of Math, and that too managed so well. I really feel it can be used to provide a platform for the preparation of these exams.
            Also it would help them prepare for all other entrace exams across the globe.

            • AMC 8/ MATHCOUNTS

              I'm studying for the AMC 8 and MATHCOUNTS, and AoPS has a textbook called Art of Problem Solving Volume 1. The textbook is really hard to use on your own, they expect that you have a basic understanding of algebra, and I do but the textbook is still really hard to work through on your own. The questions are more complicated and require you to be really good in algebra. In the SAT test prep Sal kind of went in depth on how to solve each problem, so something like that would be really helpful. Thanks!

              • Common core - Integrated Math I, II, III Format

                I have used the Khan Academy this year for the past several months. We are on a traditional path this year. For next year we are transitioning to the integrated path. Will Khan Academy provide the integrated pathway and if so by when?

                • Have the hint button be a hint

                  I think the hint button should be a hint and not the answer so that i know why I'm wrong.

                    I know that Khan Academy has test prep for SAT, but what about the ACT?

                    • Have a mission for CAHSEE prep

                      There are the videos for CAHSEE prep, but there aren't links to exercises that students could use to prepare. Having either a mission or links to the exercises in the playlist would really help. :-D

                      • ASVAB possibility ?

                        I know there are a lot of people who stress on the ASVAB like others do with SAT tests and the like. Maybe you could implement an ASVAB test prep for the many it would benefit.

                        • Develop a mission for GED prep

                          In January of 2014 most states adopted a new GED test (through Pearson) that is aligned to the common core standards.It is a strictly computer based test and it is big step up from the old GED paper test. All of the prep programs currently available are through publishers and are quite expensive. Could Khan work on developing a mission for mapped GED prep? At least for math. I work with a community based program and most students are not able to pay for prep program.

                          • AP or SAT course specific material

                            People are relying on SAT not only for college, but nowadays to get a job. SAT 2s (subject SATs) or AP courses would only help people prepare for real-life. I am unsure how specific to what age group this website is, but for high schoolers, if there was content that would focus on AP or SAT course material, it would help them out very very much. Cheers.

                                  • let people watch videos about the state test and let them practice for the state test.

                                    I suggest that you should make videos for kids about the state test so they can prepare for the test. You should also let kids practice their skills for the test, especially when it is close to the state test.
