If you are an individual learner interested in purchasing a single license, or would like to purchase a single license on behalf of an individual learner, please navigate to the individual license product page here.
The Global History Proficiency & Regents Prep Course is not a practice test -- it is a series of learning modules. Several questions are used to teach each concept. The student practices each module until achieving 100% correct in the allotted time. It doesn't take long to go through the modules to get to 100% proficiency, and it's a fun way to review the material because it requires active responding. The program keeps track of your progress and you can print out or e-mail reports from within the program. You can submit any questions about specific items to BDS while working on the exercise using the Question Comment feature. Also, you can review missed questions when finished with an exercise.
The modules are available in duplicate sets--a study module and a practice module. For the study module, the timer is set for 30 minutes (far more time than you need). For the practice module, the timer is set for (usually) 5 minutes. We recommend that you complete the study module to 100% (i.e. respond correctly to each question) before proceeding to the practice module. The time criterion assures that fluent responding is achieved—the kind of learning that leads to retention.
As for strategy, we recommend that you begin preparing with the Global History Proficiency & Prep Course 1-2 months before the exam. We recommend that you use the hints unless you are almost certain you know the answer. Also, we suggest that you work on 2-3 module sets at a time. When you get to 100% on one module set, drop it and pick up another one.
Each of the 1668 unique questions includes:
- a hint
- four multiple choice options
- corrective feedback for each wrong option
Individual Learner License VS. Bulk Licenses:
- You are on the Bulk License product page.
- Individual licenses can be purchased via the Global History Proficiency & Prep Course product page, located here.
- Bulk licenses can be purchased at a discounted price and are intended for educators and coaches who need licenses for multiple learners.
- If you are purchasing licenses on behalf of multiple learners, whether all at once or over time, you must use the Bulk License product, as individual license purchases cannot be associated with multiple learners.
- Course Admin licenses are also available. As a course admin, you will have access to real-time performance data and reporting for all learners you are teaching, coaching, and/or supervising. You can be a Course Admin for a single learner or for many learners. Please contact us for details!
Please click here to download a PDF of the Student List Template. (This is an fillable PDF and can be opened, and filled in with Adobe Reader, which can be downloaded here) After completing a bulk license purchase, please download this Student List Template, provide the desired first name, last name, email address, username, and password for as many licenses as you wish to activate (but no more than the quantity of licenses you have purchased), and email a copy to BDS. If you purchase multiple batches of 10 licenses, please download additional copies of the Student List Template and fill out one per license-batch. Please email your completed Student List Template(s) to: joel@behaviordevelopmentsolutions. We will respond within 2 business days to let you know that the licenses have been activated and/or to request additional information from you if needed.
License Transfers, Deactivation, and Expiration:
After purchase, by default, bulk licenses are not active. BDS will activate licenses for you in accordance with the information provided when you send in a student list (please see "Student Lists" above for more information).
If an activated license has been used for 1 hour or less, you can submit a license transfer request as long as you do so within one week of the activation date for that license. Licenses are not eligible for transfer after one week of activation or more than 1 hour of use. Transferred licenses can be assigned to a different learner. Please submit license transfer requests to email@example.com and include the first name, last name, email address, username, and password associated with the license you wish to transfer, as well as the first name, last name, email address, username, and password for the new learner you wish to transfer the license to. We will respond within 2 business days to let you know that the license has been transferred and/or to request additional information from you if needed.
If an activated license has been used for 1 hour or less, you can submit a license deactivation request as long as you submit your request within one week of the activation date of that license. Licenses are not eligible for deactivation if they have been active for more than 1 week or have been used for more than 1 hour. Deactivated licenses can be assigned to a different learner at a later date and will remain available to you for two years after the purchase date.
Bulk licenses are activated by BDS upon receipt of a student list containing at least one license activation request (i.e. at least one row in the Student List Template is populated with a first name, last name, username, email address, and password). You can request that BDS activate licenses in quantities at your discretion; for example, with the purchase of one bulk license product you could activate one license every month for the next ten months, or you could activate five licenses a month for the next two months, or you could activate two licenses a year for the next two years. Bulk licenses which are not activated expire two years after the purchase date. Bulk licenses which are activated expire 4, 8, or 12 months after their activation date, depending on which license duration you originally purchased. Please see below for pricing and license duration options.

Bulk licenses are eligible for return as long as none of the licenses have been activated and used for more than 1 hour. If at least one license has been activated and used for more than one hour, the bulk license product (i.e. all ten associated licenses) can not be returned. When a qualifying bulk license product is refunded, all ten licenses associated with the bulk license product are terminated. Please contact Behavior Development Solutions for usage evaluations and any other questions regarding refund eligibility.
The purchase of each license entitles one person access to the Global History Proficiency & Prep Course. (If it becomes apparent that a license is being shared, that license will be disabled. You will be required to contact Behavior Development Solutions to re-instate your license. A fee may be charged at our discretion.)
