Overall Score

Everydae is revolutionizing the college preparation and education industry through an affordable and innovative college admissions standardized test preparation methodology. After surveying students and finding that the average high school student spends four to six hours per night on homework, Everydae sought to develop methodology that would not add additional stress on teenagers and contribute to unhealthy schedules or burnout. Through daily 10-minute game-like micro challenges, Everydae created an effective SAT curriculum that is affordable, adaptive, and personalized.

Everydae was created by a team of educational technology and big data Harvard and MIT graduates. The Everydae team has been in the education industry for more than 17 years and has 20,000 cumulative hours of teaching, tutoring, and curriculum development experience. Over their careers, they’ve helped over 100,000 families get into the school of their dreams. The founders also previously worked at Veritas Prep that was sold to Varsity Tutors in 2018.

Everydae is backed by leadership with extensive experience. CEO Christine Outram is an MIT graduate, inventor, and award-winning designer. She was named a Top 100 IOT thinker and one of the 36 most creative women by Business Insider. She is best known for inventing the electric bike, The Copenhagen Wheel, a TIME Magazine Best Invention. Before becoming CEO at Everydae, she was previously the Chief Product Officer at Veritas Prep that created the adaptive learning platform ORION. 

Cofounder Chad Troutwine has an MPA from Harvard University, an MBA from Yale University, and a JD (Juris Doctor, law) from University Columbia-Missouri. Prior to Everydae, he co-founded Veritas Prep, where he served as CEO; Codesmith, an immersive coding academy; and Spectrum Station, a network of preschools.

The Good

  • Innovative Methodologies
  • Proprietary Readiness Score
  • Cost Effective SAT Preparation
  • Personal Dashboard
  • Free Online Proctored Practice Tests
  • Score Improvement Guarantee
  • 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee

Innovative Methodologies

To create its curriculum, Everydae started by analyzing not only what concepts were on the SAT, but also how much studying or mastering of various concepts would help a student’s test score. Everydae’s curriculum developers printed out every released SAT exam and then cut out every test question. After sorting questions based on skills, the curriculum developers discovered that test taking strategies taught by other SAT preparation companies were becoming less applicable with new tests and topics deemed as unimportant were actually going to more efficiently raise test scores.

Popular college standardized test preparation companies, such as Kaplan, generally operate through sessions that are strictly scheduled once a week with no accountability outside of sessions. Everydae follows academic research that confirms small, daily practice is more effective than cramming. Through daily 10-minute game-like challenges and innovative methodologies, Everydae created an SAT preparation curriculum that is adaptive, personalized, and has everyday accountability. These methodologies include:

  • Microactive Engagements — Knowing that students already have tight schedules and limited time for studying, Everydae created daily 10-minute study sessions through game-like challenges making consistent studying more feasible and thus effective.
  • Spaced Repetition — To increase the rate of learning, concepts are brought back at varying intervals.
  • Retrieval Practice — Students are tested regularly to measure retention of concepts and materials.
  • Productive Struggle — The content is personalized so that it is challenging, but not so challenging that students become overly discouraged and quit.
  • Assessment and Adaptivity — A student’s performance is analyzed, and the content is adapted to increase progress, repetition, and retention.
  • Learn by Doing — To build transference and increase retention, students attempt problems first and then have help available through video lessons if needed.
  • Growth Mindset — By instilling the idea that ability is earned, not given, Everydae builds resilience in students.
  • Reward Inputs and Outputs — Everydae rewards effort as well as results to increase confidence and a desire to learn. Students earn coins as they study that can be converted to gift cards.

Proprietary Readiness Score

Everydae’s proprietary Readiness Score contributes to its innovative test preparation methodology. The Readiness Score estimates how prepared students are to reach their SAT goals through three criteria: the importance of each skill on the SAT, the student’s performance on each of these skills, and the student’s goal score. 

The relative importance of each skill on the SAT is an important aspect of the Readiness Score because some skills will have more of an effect on a student’s score than others. Accuracy, or performance on each of these skills, is important because if students are not answering questions correctly during practice, they won’t be answered correctly on test day either. 

The student’s goal score is an additional important consideration as to how prepared a student is for the SAT. A higher SAT score goal will require more mastery of skills than a lower SAT score goal. The Readiness Score may track a student’s learning more effectively than practice tests and give students confidence on test day.

Cost Effective SAT Preparation

The SAT is a standardized test widely used for college admissions; however, only about 15 percent of families can hire test preparation tutors. Personal SAT tutors average hourly price costs can range from $45 to $100 per hour, but this can vary greatly by region or zip code. In-person courses by test preparation companies can range from $500 to $1800. Everydae aims to close this achievement disparity by providing its digital tutor at a price families can afford. Its pricing plans are cost effective with pricing at $39 per month and a $179 lifetime access option. 

Everydae is committed to providing all families access to tools, courses, and supplemental education that will help their children succeed. Students from a Title 1 school and/or are on a free or reduced lunch program can receive a discount for Everydae’s SAT test preparation. To receive the discount, eligible students simply need to contact the company through the Contact Us button at the bottom of the page.

In addition to affordable SAT test preparation, Everydae also offers free college and career resources for parents and educators throughout the United States. These free resources include grade guides to help students stay on track, student growth plans for each year of high school, and a 30-day enrichment program that motivates teenagers to discover their passion in life.

Personal Dashboard

Unlike other SAT preparation courses, students’ progress and performance can be tracked through a personal dashboard that sends weekly updates. This dashboard enables students and parents to monitor progress continuously rather than at intervals through initial and subsequent practice tests like other SAT preparation course companies. 
 
The dashboard also highlights how many challenges are left in a mission, questions that were missed so they can be reviewed, the Everydae Readiness Score, a graph indicating how many challenges have been completed in a week, coins earned, and a countdown of days until the official test date.

Free Online Proctored Practice Tests

Taking practice tests is an important aspect of studying for the SAT. The SAT is a three-hour test, and for many students, this will be the longest exam they have taken. Even though the SAT is three hours long, students may face timing issues on the test. Timing issues are not identifiable or fixable without taking SAT practice tests.

Every two weeks, Everydae runs a free online proctored SAT practice test to help students prepare for the exam. Unlike other test preparation companies, students do not need to be a paying customer to take a practice test through Everydae. The practice tests are conducted through Zoom conducted by a SAT practice test proctor to mimic the real exam. Students will receive their score and a breakdown of weaknesses and strengths with subscore advice.

Score Improvement Guarantee 

Similar to popular standardized test preparation companies, Everydae has a score improvement guarantee. If a student’s score does not improve after using Everydae, the cost of the program can be refunded. To qualify for the score improvement guarantee, students must submit an official score before signing up, have a paid account for three months, complete every challenge, and submit a second official score within 90 days of the test date.

30-Day Money-Back Guarantee

Everydae is unique in the test preparation industry in that, in addition to its score improvement guarantee, it offers a no-questions-asked, 30-day money-back guarantee. Everydae also offers a $1 for 7 days pricing at initial sign-up.

The Bad

  • Collected Information

Collected Information

Although Everydae is fairly upfront about what information it collects, users should be aware that the company collects their data/information each time they visit the website. Everydae also discloses that it may receive personal information from third parties that it is in business with.

According to Everydae personal information includes the following:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • SMS or text message address
  • Phone number
  • Credit card (and other payment information)
  • Information regarding your academic and extracurricular activities and interests
  • Any additional information that may identify you as an individual or allow online contact with you

Additionally, Everydae automatically logs information about its users' computers and uses tracking technology (more commonly known as cookies). This is nothing out of the ordinary, but again it's something users should be aware of. 

If you’re concerned or have questions about your information, you can contact Everydae and request the company send you a copy of everything it has on you. The company states that this may be subject to a fee, but Everydae doesn’t mention how much the fee is — so you’ll need to ask. You can also ask a representative to correct and (where relevant) erase certain information.

The Bottom Line

What makes Everydae unique compared to other college admissions test preparation companies is its innovative methodology. The program offers accountability through daily 10-minute study sessions and tracks growth through a personal dashboard and its proprietary Readiness Score.

These features would be advantageous for busy students needing consistent study, students looking for additional ways to track progress and SAT readiness outside of practice tests, and students looking to create healthy study habits. We also recommend Everydae for students needing additional advice or information on college readiness as it includes over 100 life skill boosters throughout the preparation course.

For parents who are looking to prepare their child for the SAT exam but need more affordable options, we recommend Everydae as the company is committed to providing preparation resources for every student regardless of financial circumstance through its affordable pricing and discounts when applicable.

This app has been a game changer for our homeschool. The academic content is strong and is presented in perfect, short segments that easily squeeze in during previously wasted moments during our day. Adding 3-4 sessions daily to our usual full schedule has been easy and painless. My son is even willing to do Everydae over the weekend! Customer service has been top notch as well. Can’t recommend Everydae highly enough!

Everydae has made studying for the SAT a painless process. My daughter is a sophomore and not yet in test-panic mode so she's not thrilled about test prep but once she's logged in - she will work for much longer than the suggested 10 min as if she's having , dare I say...fun!? After a few practice tests she's already taken, she will mention that some questions were similar to what she had reviewed on the app or how she learned to recognize certain grammatical structures. We downloaded the app during mid-Covid lockdown figuring she may as well be doing something worthwhile so she's been at it for 3 months. Customer Support has answered my questions within hours. We are both pleased with the format so far! Thank you!

Today is Day 5. My daughter has done consistent work EVERYDAY without being prompted. Prior to this, she would literally stare at her college board book “lost” as to exactly how to best prepare, resulting in no prep being done. No structure. Lots of frustration. This has, five days in, taken the guesswork out of prep.

Everydae is an amazing tool for students looking to improve their SAT scores. It is far different from other SAT prep programs such as Khan Academy, which, often frustrates students. Khan Academy does not provide a memorable and engaging experience. Everydae is the complete opposite and keeps the user very engaged. The best part is that students aren’t studying for tedious amounts of time, instead they do it once a day for their desired time period. This makes SAT prep a lot less tedious and much more memorable. Everydae’s convenience and effectiveness is why it shines brighter compared to other SAT prep programs and in-person tutors.

really love the math challenges and the little quote of inspiration/motivation that comes with it. It is really nice and it helps me as a student. I also like that after I have answered a question, I see the workings, sometimes it isn't the same with mine but I got the answer so it allows me to study and learn your approach to the problem so am highly impressed and it makes me just want to keep going. Everydae is great, I can proudly say I would recommend this to other students interested in SAT.

Everydae is educationally fun and helps for practicing for your SAT test. I love the extra credit questions because they help to not only think about your decisions in the future and know more about important people and colleges; they also help to not really focus much on the test, so most likely to relax until the next of questions. Overall, Everydae is fun, exciting, helpful, and educating.

What I liked best about Everydae were how short but helpful the lessons were, and it's similar format to Duolingo, making the website easy to use and keeping you engaged and dedicated. What I disliked, though, was the price of continuing everydae once my free trial ended, but for the needs of serious SAT practicers, the cost makes sense.
