College Testing: A Special Presentation

November 30, 2017 at 7:00pm in the Mira Costa Auditorium

Please join us for a presentation on college admission testing provided by nationally-recognized speaker Adam Ingersoll. The evolving college admission testing landscape has far-reaching implications, both for public schools and for individual students. Join us to learn how to navigate this intimidating terrain successfully.

Topics of discussion include:

  • SAT or ACT: Making your best choice
  • Understanding PSAT scores and what they project
  • The role of test scores and how they impact college admissions
  • Why testing policies at colleges vary so widely
  • Debunking the most pervasive myths about testing and admission
  • The relevance of Subject Tests at elite colleges
  • Sane and successful calendaring of testing and test prep
  • Hallmarks of high-quality test prep and strategies for self-study

This is an excellent learning opportunity for students, parents, teachers and counselors in grades 9-11.

Our speaker comes to us from a nationally recognized test prep company, Compass Education Group, but he will not be presenting his company’s services. All attendees will leave with a richer understanding of the college admission process and a framework for maximizing the student’s success on standardized tests. Attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of Compass’ College Admission Testing Guide, an 80-page resource with all the latest information about this process.
