Standardized testing is part of the application process for many colleges and universities throughout the country. Woodlynde offers both SAT and ACT testing throughout the school year for students who qualify for certain accommodations. The director of college guidance addresses the standardized testing accommodations process and structure at College Guidance parent presentations at various points in the year, but should you or your student have any questions in regards to obtaining accommodations, please contact the director of college guidance directly.
***Testing accommodations for the SAT and ACT can only be obtained with recent psychoeducational testing within 3-5 years.
The SAT is a reasoning test that provides colleges with a way to compare the academic preparation and ability of students who apply for admission. Each section is scored separately. The scores range from 200-800. The SAT features critical reading and mathematics sections, with an optional essay section.
The ACT is an alternative to the SAT. It is more subjective in terms of how the questions are presented. This test features English, Math, Reading, and Science reasoning sections, with an optional essay section.
To best determine which standardized exam your student should take, please contact the director of college guidance.
