  1. My dd is 15yo. She has never had a standardized test before, something we were going to remedy a year ago just as the lockdowns started. While she is 98th percentile for IQ, she has some processing speed and working memory issues, so I am a little concerned about her taking the ACTs. However I now feel like we don't have a lot of time to pussyfoot around with any old test. I am going to purchase an ACT prep book and have her take practice tests. She is asking me if it is possible to take a practice test in real life, meaning like a pre-ACT in the same environment and under the same conditio
  2. Is anyone's DC applying test optional this year? Last night DS applied for the October SAT. This is the 4th place he has had during the pandemic. The first 3 - March and 2 for August - were cancelled as were May and June prior to him even applying. He does have an okay ACT score from November but he feels like he would do better on the SAT plus he has that much more math and maturity since then. All of his colleges have now gone test optional with the exception of one which would like to see test scores for homeschoolers but doesn't require them and one automatic merit scholarship which i
  3. DS just completed the ACT. He had a 5th multiple choice test. I had told him that might happen. His was English but the answer grid had 5 options instead of the 4 that the English test typically has. He teased that considered filling out J for every question. I am curious whether everyone taking the ACT today had a 5th test and were they English.

  5. My 12th grader will be taking the ACT again in October to see if she can score higher in math (she is taking her 4th math at CC this year through dual enrollment & was proficient in math on Accuplacer, but she is bothered that she scored 4 points less than she wanted). She did really well with the English & essay portion last April. Should I have her take the essay again or skip it? She is applying, in December, to the dental hygiene program at our local CC. So, she won't necessarily need the essay portion scores. She has taken Eng 111 and Eng 112 to satisfy the prerequisites for denta
  6. From SFGate https://www.sfgate.com/business/article/For-sale-survey-data-on-millions-of-high-school-13117729.php “In May, the Department of Education issued “significant guidance” that recommended that public schools make clearer to students and their parents that surveys with the SAT and the ACT, a separate college admissions exam, are optional. The notice emphasized that pretest surveys could provide opportunities for families to learn about college choices. But it also reminded schools that parents had the right to inspect all surveys in advance. Parents also have the right to opt thei

  11. Does anyone have any good ideas on some really good science curriculum or living books or even, heaven forbid, a boring text book with which my 17 can peruse in order to prepare for the ACT? We have already done all of the Master Books and we have apologia books as well. Still, the practice ACT tests are throwing her off. We would really appreciate any and all suggestions as she is getting frustrated in the area of science. Thanks, momto12
  12. “As we shared with our member leaders this fall, the College Board will provide unlimited SAT score reports for low-income students starting spring 2018. In addition, CSS Profile will become completely free for low-income students.

  13. Hi all, My daughter, 11th grade, was diagnosed with Lyme a couple of months ago. As is typical, she is feeling worse while being treated. Her main issue is severe fatigue. She is normally a diligent student who is self motivated, but for the past few weeks she hasn't been able to get out of bed before 11:00 a.m. I wake her to give her some meds but she flops back down and goes right back to sleep. Right now she sleeps twelve or more hours per day and also naps. She has hardly been able to do any school work for two full weeks. She is registered to take the ACT on Saturday. She already
  14. This is kind of a misleading question, as I am definitely retaking it (I've only taken it once). My question is, to what extent will retaking it help? I got a 31 but I hadn't studied many topics. I mostly reviewed timing strategies and took one practice test. This score is good enough to get into the colleges I like, but they are close to the average freshman score. I do know that I can do better if I study the trickier topics, but I've got a lot to do and I don't know how much time I can spend studying for the test. It would be worth it though, if I could get merit aid because of a hi

  16. DD took the ACT this morning at the local high school. She and her friend had a hard time concentrating due to the fact that other test takers began talking partially through each section and particularly during the Science section. In addition, DD was surprised when they were given the written section. She put her top choice down to have scores sent to because this school Super Scores and she had done well enough on her practice exam that she felt confident that she would increase her scores. Now, she is not so sure. Is it possible to log into her account and not have the scores from this exa
  17. Hello, Can anyone give me a recommendation for the best calculator for the AP Chemistry exam? It would be a bonus if it is also good for the SAT/ACT and other APs like AP Calculus. But, if I need to buy more than one, I will. The TI-84 plus series was recommended, but there seem to be several versions of it. I know that a simpler, cheaper calculator is also okay. We have the TI-30X IIS, and can use that one. I just thought it might be good to go ahead and start using one of the graphing calculators since those will be needed for other exams, like AP Calculus, and start getting fam
  18. I came across this site today - http://www.prepfactory.com/ It looks nice but obviously I haven't used it long enough to really know. It does let you make a teacher account and then add students so you can monitor their progress. I emailed and asked about which SAT they are prepping for and they said it is still the old one so just bear that in mind. Currently they have a fun vocabulary challenge where students can go head to head against a random student. That I did try and it was FUN.
  19. Hi~ My daughter just received results of her first ACT test, which we viewed as a trial run of sorts. However, she was disappointed to see that not all of the points in a couple of sections -- math and reading -- were included in her composite score. We thought that, like her sample tests scores, the composite would be just a simple average of the four subscores. This didn't happen to her cousin or her brother, when their tests were scored. Can anyone explain this? Thank you, Desiree
  20. Hi everyone! Long time boardie here, though truthfully not much of a poster. I've gleaned a lot from the Hive's members during our 10 years of homeschooing, so hopefully you BTDT folks can offer me some ACT related assurance. I've got two kids who will be finishing up 9th grade shortly and taking the June 13th ACT. We've never done any standardized testing before, so this is a practice run for them. They've already started prepping, so now I'm just trying to eliminate any hurdle that might trip up their test day. One thing I worry a bit about is the id they have to show when they arr
  21. My son has performed well, but not terrific on the PSAT and SAT this year. His prep for the ACT seemed much more focused and intentional. I'm hoping it will pay off. He felt really good about the test. If the numbers are good enough, we need to send them ASAP with some applications for camp and an honors recognition program at his first choice school. Hard to wait. Ashley
  22. Has anyone here done research on how Common Core has changed the ACT/SAT? In no way do I want or plan to change my dd's curriculum to meet CC "standards", but we are concerned about how it will change testing for college entrance ( she will finish in 2016). I'm wondering if doing lots of ACT prep will ensure a high enough score. And then there's this: https://www.act.org/certificate/earn.html Thanks, Desiree
  23. Ds (a junior this year) is taking the SAT on Saturday, and he has prepped for it by taking weekly full-length practice exams for the past 4-6 weeks. He hasn't done any prep for the ACT yet, but I am thinking that he could take it April 12 without a problem. Is that a bad approach? It seems like the ACT is more based on the knowledge he has accrued up to this point, with not as much test specific prep needed. My thinking is that the SAT prep he has done won't hurt him on the ACT, and this would still give him time to do a few practice tests. If he really needs more time, it isn't a problem for
  24. dd is going to take the April ACT as a sophomore, in order to be eligible for dual enrollment at a local school. should we report the score to other schools, or wait for a higher score as a junior? she got a 29 on a practice test, so she shouldn't have low scores, but we definitely anticipate an increase next year (she hasn't had algebra 2 yet).
