Practice ACT: At home, computer-proctored

Description

University School of Milwaukee’s College Counseling Office 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 with results that are invaluable in helping USM College Counselors and Compass Directors craft the ideal testing and tutoring plan for each student. The Class of 2025 and 2026 are experiencing the biggest change to the SAT in a century with the digital, adaptive PSAT and SAT. Hear from the experts at Compass Education Group as they lead a pragmatic discussion of how to navigate this change.  Presentation topics will include:

– The adaptive design of the Digital PSAT & SAT

– Insight into how colleges are reacting to the Digital SAT

– The value of the Digital PSAT for diagnostic and National Merit purposes

– Fresh admissions data from test score submitters and non-submitters

– The evolving role of AP grades and exam scores

– Making an informed choice between the ACT and SAT

– How to build a successful prep timeline

About the speaker

Eric Anderson, Senior Director (he/him)
Eric grew up in Chicagoland and graduated from the University of Illinois, where he was U of I’s first Rhodes Scholarship campus nominee in nearly a decade. After college, while working on film and TV projects for the Discovery Channel, MTV Networks, and YouTube, Eric joined Compass’s Southern California team as a math tutor. He enjoyed the one-on-one tutoring experience so much that he made it his mission to bring Compass into Central Time. Now, as a Senior Director of Compass Chicago, Eric hires, trains, and mentors a team of several dozen local tutors. Each year, Eric and his colleagues speak at over 300 high schools and professional organizations, where they demystify college admission testing.
