Author Neal Shusterman commented that the measure of a man is not how much he suffers in the test, but how he comes out at the end. This quote would definitely resonate with your average high schooler, especially the reference to tests and suffering! But standardized test season begins in earnest once school starts, and how you come out in the end on those SATs, ACTs, and even the October PSAT will require suffering through a number of exams. Will you be test ready?
Even though class is finally in session, many motivated teens have been working through summer to lock in their best scores for fall. Chariot Learning has been running full-length proctored practice tests across Monroe County and beyond just about every single week. How busy were we this summer?
- We proctored 21 different practice SATs and ACTs at 9 different locations, including our first in a while at Victor HS. Kudos to our school, library, and professional partners in Pittsford, Brighton, Fairport, Gates, Penfield, Victor, Honeoye Falls, and Irondequoit for making these tests available to so many teens!
- How many students came to these tests? Would you believe 154 different students from 23 different schools, including homeschooled students? Looks like teens are coming from far and wide to take advantage of quality practice tests! We’re especially proud of the students who sat for three or more tests this summer.
- How many tests did we administer? Teens of our proctored practice tests took a total of 235 practice SATs and ACTs, over 20% more than last summer. And this doesn’t even count the many motivated students in our classes and tutoring programs who took timed tests on their own. So impressive!
We can’t stress enough how much high quality practice tests matter for anyone preparing for standardized exams. The earlier in the year you earn your best test scores, the sooner you can put these tests behind you. Ready to get started?
