Navigating College Admission Tests

A LIVE WEBINAR FOR ST. MARY’S COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL

DATE & TIME

Monday, September 25th, 9:00 A.M. Pacific

If you were unable to attend the live webinar, a recording has been posted below.

DESCRIPTION

A sweeping overhaul of the SAT/PSAT is imminent. 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.

To help families understand the changes on the horizon, the college counseling team will host Compass Education Group for a virtual presentation on the future of college admission testing. Please join other students and families for a timely, thoughtful, and pragmatic discussion that will span the following topics and more:

  • How to respond to the flexibility afforded by test-optional policies
  • Best way to approach the SAT vs ACT decision
  • Understanding the new digital, adaptive PSAT and SAT
  • Debunking the most pervasive myths about testing
  • Finding the optimal timeline for your testing and test prep
  • Scope of test prep and expectations for improvement
