The Harpeth Hall School and Compass Education Group have partnered to offer an at-home, computer-proctored ACT practice test at no cost. This test matches the current paper/pencil, linear version of the test. The test results are invaluable in helping Harpeth Hall College Counselors and Compass directors craft the ideal testing and tutoring plan for each student.

DATE & TIME

  • The at-home, computer-proctored ACT practice test (linear) is available anytime between April 20-21.

The registration deadline each week is Thursday. By Friday, we will send you a detailed confirmation email; the link to take the test will be included; you can take the test anytime during the open testing window.

NOTE: If you are unable to test during the given testing window, we will send you an email on Monday, April 22nd regarding a make-up opportunity. Please register for the test on this site to ensure you receive the email regarding the make-up opportunity.

Navigating College Admission Tests

A WEBINAR FOR HARPETH HALL FAMILIES AND FRIENDS

DATE & TIME

Wednesday, December 13th, 7:00 PM Central

If you were unable to participate in 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 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
