NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- Lynn Carnegie, founder of local test prep company Carnegie Pollak, will be giving a presentation Thursday, Jan. 28 at the New Canaan Library about how to navigate the changing landscape of standardized testing.
As high school juniors receive their PSAT scores this month, many will face the decision of whether to prepare for the ACT this spring or the redesigned SAT. Both of these college admission tests are undergoing changes this year. The ACT’s writing test underwent a major overhaul in fall 2015.
Now, the SAT’s curriculum and scoring are changing as of March to better mirror the Common Core standards. Planning ahead can help alleviate the stress associated with the testing process.
“There are so many questions parents don’t even know to ask about this process, especially with the changes to the SAT and ACT this year,” Carnegie said. “My presentations will give an overview of the testing options to help create a plan and make the whole process less daunting.”
Carnegie Pollak has been preparing Fairfield County students for standardized tests for more than 30 years. Its outstanding track record with group classes and private tutoring has earned the company the prestigious Best of the Gold Coast award for more than seven years.
Join Lynn Carnegie at this free presentation to learn about the differences between the PSAT, SAT and ACT, the various options to prepare for these tests and how to avoid common pitfalls in the process.
