Setting up Test Conditions at Home
It’s important to take the initial practice test (and all subsequent practice tests) in regular test conditions so the final score is as accurate as possible. Accurate results ensure that we can develop an appropriate curriculum that truly addresses a student’s weak areas.
Regular test conditions means:
- The test is timed. This is a ~4 hour commitment, so make sure to set aside enough time!
- Take the test in a quiet place (no dogs, siblings, television, XBOX, etc.)
- Ask someone (mom or dad) to proctor the test
- Have a calculator and extra pencils handy
Make sure to follow the official directions for whichever test (ACT/SAT) you are taking.
