Please join us for a Symposium on College Admission Testing, a professional development opportunity. The program will take place on April 16th at 11:30am (CST) online. The webinar will be led by Compass Education Group’s Adam Ingersoll, who is presenting a webinar for families the night before. In addition to presentations at schools for parents and workshops for college counselors, Adam also provides training on test interpretation for admission teams, most recently at Caltech and USC. While Compass presentations for students and parents are often billed as “Admission Testing 101,” the symposia they facilitate for college counselors could be considered graduate-level. We will take a critical look at the current landscape of admission testing, offering up-to-date, nuanced information on all the thorniest questions. There is no cost to attend.
Examples of topics covered include:
We’ll share detailed updates, rationales, and perspectives around these questions and more, which you can put to use immediately to help encourage healthy and smart testing-related behavior by students and parents.
In order to participate in the live webinar, register here. You will receive a confirmation email with an explanation of how to connect on the day of the event.
The webinar will be running on the Zoom video-conferencing platform. It may take several minutes to download and run the program on a computer. Zoom is also available as an app for smart phones and tablets. If you plan to watch the webinar from a phone or tablet, we recommend that you download the Zoom app in advance of the event.
