Khan Academy can help students prepare for college math classes and math placement tests like Accuplacer and Compass.

Two common approaches

Structured programs: Some colleges use Khan Academy in boot camps, summer bridge programs, or lab/emporium classes for incoming students. For examples, see the next article.

Independent use: Other colleges simply encourage incoming students to use Khan Academy on their own to brush up on math before classes begin. For ideas about how to explain Khan Academy's resources to your students and set them up for success, check out this article and our suggestions for helping students build study plans.

Our implementations recommendations for college transition programs apply to both approaches.
