College Readiness Assessments
College Admission Testing- What's your Plan?
ACT, SAT, PSAT, TSI, not to mention, EOC...there are quite a few tests that students take in high school to prepare and assess them for college readiness.
This presentation by More Than A Teacher explains PSAT, SAT, and ACT scores and preparation for each.
SAT or ACT?
We recommend students take both the ACT and SAT during their Junior year so they can compare scores and see which test is a best fit for them. We encourage students to choose the test on which they scored higher and felt confident, then do some test prep, and retake that exam.
