What's Your Test Prep Plan?



The accessibility of testing support for students has just shifted forward. In a bold move, College Board (SAT) and ACT have introduced free, online preparation options for students. College Board and Khan Academy launched their free online program in 2017, setting the partnership into full swing. The Khan Academy model uses students’ recent PSAT scores to provide specific practice modules, tips, and practice tests that create the potential for personalized success. ACT recently echoed this sentiment, announcing that it will roll out its own free online prep in spring 2018. This program might not apply to current juniors who have chosen the ACT, but sophomores should definitely keep the option on their radars. While both of these resources still require access to a computer, the new opportunities represent progress in preparing a broader range of students for standardized tests.

In her Washington Post article, “Can coaching truly boost SAT scores? For years, the College Board said no. Now it says yes.” Valerie Strauss makes a strong case that prepping does make a difference. This is important for sophomores and juniors to consider as their college search and application processes comes into focus. When approached in a way that doesn’t overshadow their life, investing time into standardized test preparation can improve a student’s performance and contribute to their success.
