DESCRIPTION

Are you interested in learning practical, usable information about standardized testing and college admissions?

In response to the pandemic, colleges have radically adjusted their admission testing policies. Please join Joanne Lewis, Director of the PVHS College Career Center and Torsten Sannar,  Managing Director of Compass Education Group, as they lead a thoughtful and pragmatic discussion of college admission testing and the outcomes and unpredicted “silver linings” of the test optional movement.

The presenters will share their observations of how students are using their newfound agency — if/when to test, if/when to submit scores — as they redefine their relationship with the ACT, P/SAT, and AP Exams.

Other topics include:

  • SAT or ACT: Making your best choice
  • The role and weight of ACT/SAT and AP Exam scores
  • Understanding PSAT scores and what they project
  • Why colleges’ testing policies vary so widely
  • Debunking pervasive myths about testing and admission
  • Sane and successful calendaring of testing and test prep
  • Best practices for exam selection (SAT or ACT), preparation, and calendaring
