College Placement Testing
The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)
The SAT Reasoning Test is the primary college admissions assessment both regionally and nationwide. The test is designed to assess a student’s ability to problem solve within the curriculum. Combined with a student’s academic record, it can be a good indicator of a student’s potential success in college.
The SAT is organized into three parts: Critical Reading, Writing and Mathematics. Students tend to have the most success on the SAT when it is approached holistically, or when the concepts of the SAT are promoted consistently and often within the school through SAT words of the day, sample questions, and incorporation into multiple classes.
The SAT is offered seven times a year. Students are encouraged to test as needed to obtain a score that will serve them best in college admissions. Students should be aware of the general range of scores the school of their choice asks for in conjunction with the SAT. The SAT Preparation Site is an excellent place to begin laying the foundation for future success.
