Knowing how to guide your child through the jungle of testing is the single easiest way to improve your child’s chance of college admissions. Testing is an essential component of your child’s college application. It is also a complicated, confusing, and lengthy process with many variables and pitfalls. However, when approached strategically, testing can be one of the simplest. Topics will include:
- Are the SAT and ACT still important?
- How can my child stay test-ready with test cancellations?
- What does remote Test Prep look like?
- Should my child take the SAT, the ACT or both (and how many times)?
- Should she begin her preparation in 9th, 10th or 11th grade?
- What should that preparation look like?
- What about Subject Tests and AP exams?
- What are the recent changes to the SAT and ACT and how will they affect my child?
- How can I make this process less maddening??
By answering these questions and more, this workshop will empower parents with the information necessary to guide their children through this important, harrowing process in as low stress a manner as possible. This workshop with Q&A is taught by Cory Bragar, Ivy Link’s Director of Standardized Testing.
