SAT/ACT Exam Preparation
The SAT and ACT exams are important metrics which colleges and universities use as admissions standards. (Note – the #1 standard is almost always grades / GPA and ‘academic rigor)
Since both the SAT and ACT scores are based on the number of correct answers that a student amasses, the mAke the grAde prep program focuses on active processes which enable students to maximize their number of correct answers, and thus, their ultimate score.
So what’s the process like? Preparation
- Syllabus development
- Ongoing reassessment
- Student mastery
The bottom line = The students learn, develop and practice a comprehensive set of strategies which will enable them to confidently address every aspect of these challenging tests with a clear, executable plan to achieve their highest potential scores.
There are 4 major components of the plan
Test taking strategies
- EVERY aspect has a strategy. Math, English, Reading, Science, Writing. Everything. In fact, many of these components of the tests have multiple strategies and can be used individually or in tandem. Students will be shown, and will practice and master, every strategy they need to succeed
- These are timed exams. Students stress over not be able to complete the test sections on time. Over the course of the prep programs, students learn to manage time using a variety of drills and techniques
- Often students need some remediation and review of ‘book stuff’. This is typically more common in the Math areas, but can extends to all areas of the tests.
… makes perfect. In this case.. the mantra is: “We practice as we plan to test”.
