We decided to place the testimonials right where you can find them not only as a thank you to those who have put in their hard work, but also for those of you who have yet to take the VCLA and may need some inspiration and/or confirmation. All of the testimonials you see below are from individuals who used our VCLA preparation program.
“I passed the VCLA with the help from the Longsdale course. I scored a 260 reading and 264 writing for a combined score of 524. A score of 470 is passing. The test was challenging for me but I felt prepared as a result of working through the Longsdale VCLA online course.”<
“This past weekend, I was able to attend a one-day VCLA training at Norfolk State University (NSU uses Longsdale’s program). The program helped me tremendously with understanding the test and how to pass it. During the program, I learned to read the passages quickly and thoroughly as well as how to navigate through the answer choices to choose the best one. In addition, I learned basic ideas, such as the author's purpose and synonyms and antonyms, that I once could not remember. Knowing those basic ideas helped me to answer the multiple choice portion more effectively. I learned to write in a style that will score a 3 or 4. I learned the importance of answering the prompt effectively. Lastly, I am thankful to have an opportunity to take a similar test as if I was taking the actual VCLA. This allowed me to see the areas that I needed to improve in. The VCLA program at Norfolk State University gave me confidence that I have what it takes to pass the VCLA and become the best teacher possible.&rdquo”
“I got a fantastic score, higher than I expected! What a relief it is to pass the VCLA. With the outstanding help from Longsdale Publishing and the VLCA prep course, I was able to successful navigate, understand, and pass the VCLA test. Thank you for creating and providing such a thorough and extremely helpful guide and test preparation. The explanation of the reading and written part, the exposure to the test structure and the real-life essay feedback was vital to my passing grade. I recommend this test prep service. Thank you.”
“I utilized Longsddale Publishing as one of my resources to prepare for the VCLA. The first time that I took the test, I missed the writing section by 6 points. I took the writing section again but did not pass. I took the entire test again and increased my reading score from a 216 to a 268. Although I did utilize other resources to prepare for the VCLA, I will say that the program from Longsdale Publishing helped me to feel best prepared for the design of the test. My first composite score was a 445. My passing score was a 493. Thank you Longsdale Publishing for designing a strong test preparation program.”
“This program was very helpful preparing for the VCLA. I feel more prepared now than I did before completing the practice tests. I would definitely recommend this to others!”
“I passed both parts the first time around. The test prep was invaluable. I took all four writing practice exams. The raw scores I received were writing: 91%, reading: 80%.”
“I used Longsdale Publishing's program as a study guide in passing the Virginia Communication and Literacy Assessment (VCLA) test. I was a little skeptical at first, but I tried the program and I can say that it was a huge help. I was especially worried about the writing portion of the VCLA, but I worked on a sample write up, emailed it to the folks at Longsdale Publishing, and received feedback within 3 days, as promised. The best part is that there were no surprises on the test and I was well prepared, thanks to Longsdale Publishing. I passed the writing portion of the VCLA, and I am now working on studying for the reading portion using the same program. I would highly recommend this program.”
“Thank You Longsdale Publishing!!!!!!!!”
“I'm a Bachelors of Music Education major at George Mason University with a concentration in Instrumental Education with starting an Accelerated Masters in Special Education. As part of my program for both, I had to take the VCLA. I cannot emphasize how much I really valued your testing prep services to my success of the exam. I would get only 60% or so on your practice tests and would feel highly discouraged. When I got to the actual test, I felt like I was prepared, based on the fact how I prepared using your services. People said not to use a test prep service, especially that costs $40, but for me, as someone who has slight dyslexia that was not diagnosed till I was 16 and reading comprehension is not my forte, it was very beneficial and I credit in part your website for my 543/600 score.”
“It is very useful and very recommended.”
“Thank you for your feedback. I took the writing part this afternoon and feel that I did well. I already took the first part (Reading-091) and scored a 391! The online class was a great help and I will definitely pass on the word to other teachers.”
“If you have to take the VCLA, I highly reccomend Longsdale Publishing online prep course. I reviewed all the other test preparation materials and Longsdale was by far the most thorough and effective for preparing to take the exam. By taking the course I was able to consistently get passing grades on the practice tests. I am taking the actual exam on Friday and thanks to Longsdale I am feeling very confident!”
“The VCLA Online Course and Practice Tests are simple to navigate, extraordinary for test preparation and provide a solid emotional boost to any test anxiety brought about by the mere thought of taking a licensure test like the VCLA. Onward to a fruitful, prosperous career in teaching.”
“I enrolled on website about 7 days before taking my VCLA for the first time. I passed!!!!! The first time. THANKS !!! It was worth the $40. Wish you had study programs online for the Reading for Virginia Educators (5306) also referred to as the Praxis II. I have the book offered by ets.org, but I think your course was in depth and gave me practice on the computer.”
“I used your services and it was a life saver. Thank you so much. I felt prepared going into the test. I passed and did very well. I would use your services for any other test. You stayed very true to the actual format of the test. I loved the fact that I could use it right away once I paid for it.”
“As a non-native English speaker, I have always been concerned that I would not be able to pass the VCLA test in order to pursue my goal as a teacher in this country. I definitely found this program helped me improve my English grammar, comprehension, and writing skills. After I submitted my sample essay, I received a personal reply with detailed comments. I was surprised to see how your company was so seriously about helping me improve my writing skills. Using your constructive comments, I rewrote my essay using your suggestions. Your replies will benefit me in my writing for the rest of my life. I am sincerely grateful. I got a final score of 550 for both tests. Not to bad for a recent Chinese immigrant. I am now on my way to a teaching career. I think this program is so worthwhile. It gave me confidence and brought the best results.”
