What will the online testing experience be for students?
0.9 min read
Dear Academic Approach Families and Colleagues:
We first wanted to share with you some new testing information–College Board has scheduled the SAT national test date for September 26. We’ll share more information as it becomes available. Next, we’ve heard many questions from you about the future of online testing, specifically regarding the student’s test-taking experience:
Will the online testing experience be substantially different from paper testing?
Will students be able to read and reason and problem solve with the same strategies they’ve developed for success on pencil and paper tests?
Can they annotate, eliminate, highlight, use calculators, etc.?
While the features of online testing are a moving target, we’ve gathered a snapshot of their current state of development for their practice tests and listed them below for you. Yes, it will be a new frontier—adjustment will be required—but it is promising that some online features allow students to apply some of the best-practice critical reading and critical reasoning strategies we know lead to test-taking success.
Be well, Matthew Pietrafetta, Ph.D., Founder & CEO
