A Special Event for the George School: Navigating a Rapidly-Evolving Testing Landscape
Although around 95% of US colleges have adopted test optional policies, the decisions to test and submit scores require thoughtful consideration. For instance, among some selective universities, strong test scores are preferred and enhance students' applications. Conversely, other colleges state that the absence of scores has little impact on admission outcomes.

Hear from the experts at Compass Education Group as they lead a thoughtful and pragmatic discussion of college admission testing and the recent outcomes of the test optional movement.

Presentation topics will include:

- The evolving role of test scores in specific contexts
- Making sense of the subtlety and variety of testing policies
- Fresh admissions data from test score submitters and non-submitters
- Making an informed choice between the ACT and SAT
- The diagnostic value of the PSAT and other practice tests
- Optimal timing and smart approaches to test preparation and testing
