The World of Admission Testing at MacLaren

http://maclaren.schoolfusion.us/modules/groups/homepagefiles/cms/1623351/Image/COLLEGE%20&%20CAREER/lightbulb.JPGAt MacLaren, students are introduced iná10thágrade to testing that is related to the college admission process when they take theáPre-ACT, a practice test for the ACT.á Juniors will retake theáPSATáand may qualify for what's known as the National Merit Scholarship if they have scores that fall typically in the top 5% of the national pool.á The PSATáis aápracticeátest and is not used for college admissions; however, some summer programs request scores from a nationally administered test for consideration to their programs.

College admission testing begins in earnest, typically in the spring of the Junior year. áStarting with the class of 2017, all Colorado students will take the Colorado
áSATá(paid for the state and accepted by colleges worldwide) in April at MacLaren, on a school day designated by the state.á Students are encouraged to consider taking the ACT as welláby the end of their Junior year so that they can evaluate which test they match best with in planning to retake one test.

Students may want to consider taking appropriate "Subject Tests" (a College Board product) throughout their high school careers if they are considering applying to highly selective colleges/universities that may require them for admission consideration or are considering applying to International colleges.

á
There are an increasing number of schools that are "test optional" which means their admission process doesn't require the submission of test scores or may only require them for entrance into specific majors (engineering, for example).á To explore the list of over 850 schools, visitáFairtest.ááAnd review the following list to get some sense of where you might fit in, both in terms of admission and your college "match":
á
Test Prep is big business but the most important investment a student can make, in terms of testing outcomes, is to focus on what they are learning in school, day in and day out!á For those who want to familiarize themselves with the test format and/or spend some time on test prep, there are plenty of free sites online and some affordable workshops offered locally:
