Will you soon take the ACT or SAT test? In college admission decisions, standardized test scores tend to be the most important factor after curriculum and GPA. Grades come first, but ACT or SAT scores are important–very important. According to the American Test Anxieties Association, however, roughly 38% of students identify as “bad test takers.” Maybe you’re one of them, or maybe you just need to learn about the tests and improve your skills.
This class breaks down the essentials of the reading tests. Studying both concepts and test strategies, you will practice with authentic test questions to develop competence and confidence. You will be then be poised to decide which test is better for you to take.
The instruction covers both reading comprehension topics and genre practice:
- Main Idea
- Passage Structure
- Information & Inference
- Purpose & Point of View
- Prose Fiction & Classical Literature
- Social Studies & History
- Natural Sciences
- Dual Passages
