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 and SAT will be completely replaced by an adaptive, computer-based format. The Class of 2025 will be the first to take the redesigned Digital PSAT and Digital SAT during junior year.

The introduction of a digital assessment comes at a poignant time 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
