Several different standardized tests are administered at Cartersville High School during the school year. A description of each test is provided below. School board policy requires that parents must pick up test scores. Please contact the Guidance Office for additional information. Stanford Achievement Test (SAT-9)
The SAT-9 is given to all 9th and 10th grade students in the spring. This test measures achievement in reading, written expression, mathematics, social studies, science, and information processing. It provides valuable information about an individual student's strengths and weaknesses.
PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test)
The PSAT is essentially a practice test for taking the SAT. The PSAT may provide important information concerning a student’s individual weaknesses, which can be remediated before he/she takes the SAT. The PSAT is given to all sophomore students free-of-charge. College bound students are encouraged to take the PSAT again during the junior year. The cost of the PSAT is approximately $9.00 for juniors. Eleventh grade students may sign up for the PSAT in the Guidance Office. The PSAT is administered only ONCE during the school year. Don't miss it this October. Those students who are seeking to participate in the National Merit Scholarship competition must take the PSAT in the junior year. It is also a required part of the Governor's Honors Program evaluation criteria. Please refer to the National Merit/Achievement Scholarship Program and the Governor's Honors Program.

Beginning in grade ten, the College Placement Office begins the formal college search. This becomes increasingly intensive through the first semester of the senior year at which point all applications have been filed on behalf of the student.
Standardized Testing
Admiral Farragut Academy has been designated a national testing site for the ACT, SAT I, and SAT II. Juniors and seniors are required to test on six occasions to benefit from score improvement. In addition, sophomores and juniors take the PSAT every October. The entire student body is administered the CAT (California Achievement Test) on an annual basis. International students are required to take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) during the first semester of the senior year for college placement purposes.

Proficiency Test
This test was developed for all Michigan high school students to replace the MEAP Test. It is a four part test that measures basic skills in math, science, reading, and writing.
This test is a good indicator of how a student will perform on the SAT or ACT. If a student scores in the top 2% they may be recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Foundation. This is a very impressive honor that may lead to many scholarship opportunities. Find out more about the PSAT at College board PSAT.
All colleges require either the SAT or ACT. The ACT test is commonly taken by all college bound students in the spring of their junior year. Students may take these tests as many times as they want, and colleges will generally use their highest score. These tests are important, and should be studied for.

College Application Season
Seniors are fully into the process of collecting college application forms, writing essays, and requesting letters of recommendation from the faculty.
For efficient handling of the paperwork, it is important for everyone to follow the procedures discussed at the Senior College Night in September. The process is outlined in detail in the College Planning Guide distributed to juniors last spring. The Guidance Office mails all the documents for each application (application, recommendations, transcript, and a return card) in one envelope from the school. Materials are also photocopied before they are mailed. We feel this procedure reduces the chances of application materials being misplaced or misfiled in the process.
With the proliferation of online applications, we must adjust our procedures for those submitted electronically. Students must be sure they have printed any counselor forms or personal signature pages included at the end of an electronic application. Those can be sent with the transcript and recommendations from the Guidance Office. It is imperative that students notify the Guidance Office when they have submitted an application online so that we will know to send a transcript and any other required documents.

Baker High School Guidance Standardized Tests/Preparation Click here for test dates/registration information Most high school College entrance tests It is rare for any college to base its admission decisions solely on the results of the SAT or ACT scores. Decisions are made based on all the information available to a college including the high school transcript, teacher and counselor recommendations, personal statement, resume, interviews, and test scores. At each college, the weighing of these factors varies, but the high school record is almost always the most important single factor for consideration for admission. SAT I: Reasoning Tests College Board web site. SAT II: Subject Tests Students cannot take both the SAT I and SAT II on the same date. PSAT: Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test The PSAT is taken in October of the Junior year. Registration is done through the Guidance office approximately one week prior to the test date. The PSAT offers students the opportunity to participate in a standardized testing situation that is less stressful for the student; that PSAT scores are not reported to colleges and universities. PSAT scores are used as qualifiers for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Test results are given as a verbal score, a math score, and a National Merit Selection Index. ACT: The American College Testing Program TOEFL: Test of English as a Foreign Language For the student whose primary language is not English, the TOEFL offers a way to be competitive in the college application process without being penalized for a deficiency of English vocabulary.

Expert: Students can plan to succeed on standardized tests
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Taking a college entrance exam can be one of the most stressful times in a student's life, but a Purdue University expert says it doesn't have to be. Doug Christiansen, director of Purdue's Office of Admissions, says taking the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT) does not have to be a nerve-racking experience. Test results from the SAT and ACT are one of the tools colleges and universities use to determine which students to admit. "Everyone can set themselves up for success on these tests," Christiansen says. "However, you can't spend a week cramming, go to bed early the night before, eat a healthy breakfast the morning of the test and expect to have fabulous success. The best preparation happens over time." He suggests:
  • Taking college preparation courses (English, math and science) during all four years of high school. "Stay in academic courses throughout your high school career," Christiansen says. "Even if you've fulfilled your school's graduation requirements, keep taking solid college prep classes. Continuing to improve your reading comprehension and critical thinking skills will do nothing but help you when test time rolls around."
  • Making math comprehension a priority. "You really need to understand the fundamental principles of mathematics," he says. "If you are struggling with any part of it, retake the class and ask for help."
