Awty International School and Compass Education have partnered to offer the brand new Digital Adaptive P/SATThis new test (learn all about it here) mimics the computer-based test — question type, content, timing, duration, and adaptive structure. We are also offering an at-home, computer-proctored, ACT practice test. This test matches the current paper/pencil, linear version of the test. These test results are invaluable in helping the Awty college counselors and Compass directors craft the ideal testing and tutoring plan for each student.
