Now is not the time to roll out of bed, throw on whatever's closest to you and make a mad dash to your testing lab. Standardized tests like the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) and American College Testing (ACT) Assessment are important variables that can round out your college application or put you on shaky ground. Standardized tests are an important part of the admissions process at many colleges. These exams offer colleges a consistent measure of your academic potential against other students. So all other factors being equal, these tests are likely to heavily influence your chances of getting into a particular school. Your SAT and ACT scores need to be up to the standards of the university to which you're seeking admission. Some schools admit only those with the best scores and encourage students to take the test more than once. To ensure the highest possible score, it is very important to prepare for the tests. The Tests PSAT SAT 1 SAT II: Subject Tests ... Test Taking Tips The Tests There are several types of standardized tests. The two major tests used for college entrance exams are the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) and the American College Testing (ACT) Assessment.

Standardized Testing Requirements
The University of Richmond's standardized test requirement may be met in either of the following ways: The SAT-I and two SAT-II Subject Tests in Writing and Math (level IC or IIC)
The ACT (American College Test).
  • Applicants are encouraged to take a third SAT-II subject test in a foreign language because it aids the language departments in determining placement. These tests must be taken by January (SAT-I and SAT-II) or February (ACT) of the senior year at the latest. Please consult with your high school guidance office or the College Board and ACT calendars to insure these tests are completed in a timely fashion. We strongly recommend that students DO NOT "hold" their SAT-II subject test scores under the Score Choice option as this delays the processing of their application. Students who apply for merit scholarships at Richmond should complete all standardized testing by the end of December of their senior year in high school. It is your responsibility to have official score reports sent to the University of Richmond.

If you are already in college and preparing to go on to graduate, business, law, or medical school, there are additional exams you'll have to prepare for. Check with your high school counselor or the schools you're interested in attending to find out what test or tests they require you to take. Also, ask your counselor, contact the testing agencies, or check your local bookstore for samples of past tests to become familiar with what to expect.

Curriculum Enhancement
School counselors foster excellence by helping all students to achieve their potential. They promote excellence through their work in four program areas: Individual Planning: Counselors meet individually with each student during the year. During the fall semester, focus is on academic progress and school adjustment. Counselors meet with seniors to assist in the college application process. In the spring, counselors assist students in developing their four-year plans and in requesting classes for the following year. Counselors also assist with individual assessment and test interpretation. Guidance Curriculum: Counselors make presentations to students through directed study halls. They provide classroom guidance, large group activities, newsletters, and transitions issues. Responsive Services and Individual Counseling: Counselors provide personal counseling, crisis counseling, small groups for interaction, and support team and 504 services. Small educational groups are provided to reinforce healthy life skills and support academic success System Support: Counselors coordinate and implement the counseling program by developing a partnership with the teachers, administrators, parents, and community leaders.

Personal Statements
Although there are no specific subject requirements, you are urged to undertake the strongest course of study available in your secondary school. Most applicants to Dartmouth present very strong secondary school transcripts that include four years of English and mathematics (usually through calculus), three years of social science and laboratory science, and at least three years of a foreign language. Your record of achievement in secondary school is also important in our deliberations. The majority of applicants present scholastic records that suggest they can successfully complete the academic work required by the College. While we have no minimum grade point average or class rank required for consideration, approximately 90% of those admitted rank in the first decile of their high school class.
Standardized Testing
All applicants to Dartmouth, including those who apply from foreign countries, are required to take either the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT I) or the examination of the American College Testing Program (ACT). In addition, all applicants must submit the results from any three SAT II Subject Tests. All testing must be completed by January of the senior year in high school. If standardized testing is repeated, the Admissions Committee only considers your highest scores.

Colleges need a way to compare students from across the country that attend different high schools with varying standards. The way they do so is through standardized test scores.
We realize you've spent the better half of your time studying and taking tests. But none will be as important as your college admission and placement test(s). Colleges use these test scores to help determine admission. And while it's just one of the many tools used to determine your acceptance, the results are important.
Below, we have listed two standardized tests that you need to consider: the ACT and the SAT.
The best indication of how you will do in college is a measure of how well you can perform the skills necessary for college coursework. The ACT Assessment measures these skills in English, mathematics, reading and science reasoning. These areas are tested because they include the major areas of instruction in most high school and college programs.
Take the sample ACT test provided in the registration packet. In addition, sample questions and explanations of correct answers can be found on the ACT website, Knowing what to expect on the test day will allow you to feel comfortable and will improve your chances for performing better.

Standardized testing scrutinized
Jerad Peer News Staff To graduate from Westside High School, students are going to need more than an impressive grade point average. Times are changing and standards are on the rise. To graduate one needs to complete 80 hours of service learning, 210 credits (10 more than was needed in 1997), proficiencies for each class and a senior project: the one presentation that can make or break one’s glory and freedom. The graduating class of 1998 was the first to tackle these requirements. Before then, an impressive, or even non-impressive, grade point average could get students a high school diploma. “Before the change, the theory was that most schools required a 70% passing grade, whether it’s elementary school or medical school,” guidance counselor Dick Lundquist said. “You could’ve gotten 75% in half of your classes and 65% in the other half and still have graduated. That means you didn’t learn much from half the classes you took.” Standards are rising all over the United States, but many schools across the nation believe standardized testing is the way to go. President George W. Bush is a strong supporter of standardized testing and claims testing improved the educational system in Texas during his time as governor. According to Nebraska Education Association Today, test scores did raise in Texas, but the number of high school dropouts saw an even more significant rise.

STANDARDIZED TESTS Most colleges and universities require their applicants to take at least one standardized test for their consideration for admission. For most students, this usually means taking the SAT I: Reasoning Test (formerly called the SAT). Most selective colleges also require one, two, or even three SAT II: Subject Tests (formerly called Achievement Tests). If you live in certain parts of the country, the ACT may be the more common test. The ACT is another standardized test used for college admission. Most colleges and universities will accept either the SAT or the ACT. Sometimes the ACT can be taken instead of the SAT I, and sometimes instead of both the SAT I and SAT II. The ACT is a test which most students should consider taking at least once; by doing so, you could be giving yourself more options. For a comparison summary of the two tests, click here. Whatever standardized test(s) you take, remember that you are responsible for seeing to it that the respective testing agency forwards your score(s), in a timely fashion, to the colleges to which you will applying. Your test scores may or may not appear on your high school transcript, but even when they do, most colleges will still want an official report from the testing agency.

Testing Information and Testing Links
Preparing for testing Here are some things for students and parents to keep in mind when preparing for tests. (provided by Harcourt Brace, makers of the Stanford tests) Students:
  • REST- Get a good night's sleep before a test. EAT- A good breakfast on the morning of a test is important. Test-taking uses lots of energy. LISTEN - Listen carefully to the directions that are giving for the test and follow them exactly. If the directions are not clear, ask the teacher to repeat them or to explain the directions again. TRY - Do your best. Even if some parts of the test seem hard, keep trying and don't give up.
  • DISCUSS - Help your child understand that a test provides a chance to show what he/she knows about a subject and how the teacher can best help the child to learn. SUPPORT - See that your child maintains regular study habits, but don't ask for extra study time for the standardized, state mandated tests. They cover more schoolwork than can be learned in a few extra hours. RELAX - Reassure your child about the test-taking experience. Students who are calm and sure of themselves do better on a test.
