A Symposium on Admission Testing



Please join your IECA colleagues for a Symposium on College Admission Testing, a professional development opportunity. The program will take place on Thursday, March 2nd at 11a.m. Eastern via Zoom and will be led by Compass Education Group’s Adam Ingersoll.

We will take a critical look at the current landscape of admission testing, examining the evolving policies and practices around colleges’ use of testing and their impact on student behavior and decision-making. We’ll also provide a thorough review of College Board’s transition – well underway – to digital, adaptive testing, unpacking what counselors should know now and what we should be prepared for with the class of 2025. Time will be allowed for Q&A and discussion.

Special thanks to Hildie Steiner of High Five College Prep for hosting and organizing the presentation. We hope you will join us!
