SAT: Information from Instruction Counselors: Lessons 8

Sarah Newlin, Testive’s Suggestions Counselor Outreach Consultant, explores how information counselors happen to be preparing for the latest SAT and what advice will have them giving mothers and fathers and college students.

So , what are assistance counselors saying to their young people about the DIFFERENT SAT? The fact is, not all very much just yet. Lots of people are still understanding for themselves what changes lead to for the test content and a lot don’t desire to pile pointless stress against students and oldsters. After all, the group Board remains in the process associated with releasing advice about the new examination to the open.

That said, the majority of counselors manage to fall into not one but two camps in terms of the advice these are giving:

Camp 4: Focus on the particular ACT

The theory driving this position is always that the ACT serves as a pretty constant test for a long time. This translates to more general public knowledge about the test and the accessibility to more high quality practice elements. In short, test-takers and those who have help them anticipate the RESPOND tests, can easily better prognosticate what the ACTION will be including on experiment day.

On the other hand, the College Snowboard will only own limited ‘official’ practice components available and perhaps that will not be as vetted as recent SAT practice material for instance the Blue Reserve. Until one or two administrations of your new evaluation have approved and just about any kinks have already been worked out, test content only will be to some extent unknown together with unknowable.
