Navigating a Rapidly-Evolving Testing Landscape

A PRESENTATION FOR GREENHILLS SCHOOL

DATE & TIME

Thursday, September 28, 6:30 p.m. Eastern

If you were unable to attend the live webinar, a recording has been posted below.

DESCRIPTION

Last spring, College Board announced a sweeping overhaul to the SAT suite of assessments. Starting in the fall of 2023, paper-based administrations of the PSAT will be completely replaced by an adaptive, computer-based format. The SAT will follow suit in early 2024.

The introduction of a digital assessment comes at a pivotal moment in today’s admission context, where colleges are actively interrogating the value of standardized testing in students’ applications. And while many schools have retained test optional policies in the wake of the pandemic, admission offices have demonstrated varying preferences for test scores.

Hear from the experts at Compass Education Group as they lead a thoughtful and pragmatic discussion of the future of college admission testing.

Presentation topics will include:

  • The evolving role of test scores in specific contexts
  • Making sense of the subtlety and variety of testing policies
  • Fresh admissions data from test score submitters and non-submitters
  • Making an informed choice between the ACT and SAT
  • The specs and design of the digital, adaptive PSAT & SAT
  • Optimal timing and smart approaches to test preparation and testing
