The HSPT measures abilities in reading, mathematics and writing skills. To be eligible for a New Jersey high school diploma, students must pass all sections of the test. Eighth grade students will be given the Grade Eight Proficiency Assessment (GEPA). If a student does not meet district minimum standards on the eighth grade test, a program of remediation will be developed for that individual. Students new to the district, without previous HSPT/HSPA scores, will be tested based on their grade level according to state guidelines. HSPT/HSPA score reports will be mailed to parents. COLLEGE ADMISSION TESTING Most colleges and many technical schools require standardized test scores as one part of the data needed to consider a student for admission. Information on privately sponsored and community sponsored review courses for these tests is available in the Guidance Office. The following tests are among those used by colleges for admission, placement and/or scholarship consideration. PRELIMINARY SCHOLASTIC ASSESSMENT TEST/NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP QUALIFYING TEST (PSAT/NMSQT)
This test administered in October is a multiple-choice test with a student response section measuring verbal, writing and mathematical abilities that are related to success in college. It is designed to provide an early measurement of a student's aptitude for college level study; to provide test-taking experience; and to identify outstanding students who may then compete for National Merit Scholarships. This test is recommended for all college-bound juniors. High achieving sophomores often take this test for practice purposes. Only juniors are eligible for National Merit consideration. Registration for juniors is arranged through the Guidance Office

Schools weigh importance of standardized tests
The Daily Illini
Some universities might be considering minimizing the importance of the Scholastic Aptitude Test in their admissions process, but many students applying to the University already don't take the SAT. The University, along with other state schools, gives prospective students the choice to submit either American College Test or SAT scores. Most Illinois high school students take the ACT because Illinois is an "ACT state," said Terry Rein, a guidance counselor at Champaign's Centennial High School. The ACT, dominates the midwest and much of the south, while the SAT is widely used on both coasts, where the majority of highly selective colleges are concentrated, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education. Because these colleges require prospective students to submit SAT scores, recent controversies about using entrance exams in admissions have generally focused on the SAT, according to the Chronicle. In the University's peer group, including the University of Wisconsin at Madison and the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, the submission of either ACT or SAT scores is "a requirement across the board," said Ruth Vedvik, University admissions director.

I am interested in SAT/PSAT/ACT..... Question #116:
  • I didn't get a great score on my ACT. What do I need to do to get into the college of my choice?
Answer #116:
  • Did you do any preparation before you took the ACT?
  • Do you know what sections gave you trouble?
Before you take the test again, you should find someone to tutor you in the areas where you need help. If you cannot afford a professional tutor, you can find a peer tutor or use a computer program or simply take a number of practice tests in a prep book and see what types of problems are giving you difficulty. Once you know where you need help, ask one of your teachers to work with you to clear up some of the problems that have been affecting your score.
You might also try the SAT. Some students do better on one test than the other, but everyone does better on both tests if they prepare. You should never approach standardized testing without knowing about the format and content of the test, the expectations for the levels of knowledge you need, and an understanding of how to pace your work so that you can accomplish the maximum in the time allotted.
You can find the best deals on the 'Net for PSAT/SAT/ACT prep software programs and tutorials through the EDUFAX site
It is also possible that you have some learning differences which make standardized testing difficult for you. If there is a serious discrepancy between the level of your classroom work and the level of your standardized test scores, you should speak with your guidance counselor about having an educational evaluation.

Although a student's high school record (grades, class rank, types of course taken) is the best single indicator of how well you will do in college, high schools can be very different in the courses they offer and in the ways they give grades. Standardized exams give students a chance to show colleges what they know and can do independent of their grades. College entrance exams are required by most four year colleges and universities and some two year schools. THE TESTS PSAT - The Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test The PSAT is offered in October for the junior students. The test should be taken by all juniors who plan to attend college. Please talk with your counselor for registration details.

Do you have a tutoring company that provides subject tutoring and little or no standardized test preparation? There are many reasons you should consider entering the college test preparation segment of the education industry. Most importantly, the underlying educational trends in the U.S. provide a strong foundation for this growing segment of the education industry, one that will continue to grow at an accelerated rate for at least the next 5-10 years. While we continue to search for the perfect college admissions test and the perfect high school state assessment, the current and future reality is that standardized tests are a permanent and increasingly important part of our educational landscape. With bipartisan political support for standardized testing at both the state and federal level, growing graduation rates, an SAT I that will be overhauled in 2005, more K-12 state assessment tests, and Bush's No Child Left Behind bill, the prospects for the college test prep market seem rosy. The college test prep market size is loosely estimated at around $250 million and expected to grow. Over 2.4 million students took either the SAT I or ACT in 2001. For comparison, consider that in 2001, there were approximately 2.8 million public high school graduates.

Test Dates: 2000-2001 ... Back to Top STANDARDIZED TESTING ABOUT THE P.S.A.T The Preliminary Student Assessment Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT-NMSQT) is given in the 10th grade for practice and then is used as a qualifying exam for the National Merit Scholarship program in the 11th grade. The PSAT is a two-hour version of the SAT I and measures verbal, writing, and mathematical reasoning and problem-solving abilities. All 10th and 11th grade students are registered by Lovett to take the exam. ABOUT THE SAT I The Student Assessment Test I (SAT I) is a three-hour multiple-choice test that measures the verbal and mathematical reasoning abilities you have developed over many years, both in and out of school. Your SAT I scores, grades, course selection, and other information about your academic background help college admissions officers evaluate how well prepared you are to do college-level work. Most colleges now affirm that they see the strength of your transcript (i.e., how challenging the courses you've chosen to take) and your grade point average as far better predictors of college performance than standardized test scores. Since courses and grading standards vary widely from high school to high school, however, scores on standardized tests, such as SAT I and the ACT, help colleges compare the ability of students from different schools.

    The goal of Cincinnati Country Day School's College Guidance program is to acculturate and assimilate students to the college admissions and college counseling processes. This process will begin in a student's freshman academic year and will continue developmentally through a student's senior year. Our aim is to slowly introduce to the students the terms, guidelines/timelines, nuances, and informational programs at age and grade appropriate times. We will prepare students in such a manner that their college application process is concluding early in their senior academic year and not just beginning then, which is often the case at other secondary institutions. Additionally, our intent is to counsel students to matriculate at the most holistically appropriate college or university, not necessarily the most selective college or university in which they are admitted. The following is a general overview of the four-year developmental college-counseling program Freshman Year

    GUIDANCE OFFICE The Upper School Guidance Counselor is Mrs. Susan Smith, who can be reached by e-mail at . The Guidance Office is located in the front hall of the Upper School. Regular office hours are between 7:45 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. each school day. Appointments with parents and students are also available before and after regular office hours upon request. GOALS:
    Through the Guidance Office at Walsingham Academy, we strive to:
    • Improve academic achievement, Enhance educational and career planning, Foster positive attitudes toward school and learning, Encourage personal responsibility, and Respect for self and others.

    The eighth and ninth graders take the Terra Nova Test which is a combination of achievement testing in Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies and an ability test with a verbal and non-verbal component. The students meet individually with the guidance counselor who helps explain the scores and begins to assess college and career aspirations. The goal is always, however, to help the student realistically achieve at Walsingham with as little stress as possible. The tenth and eleventh graders take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test as a practice for the SAT I and II/ACT which are college admissions tests.
