The first thing I’m going to do is talk about the origin of the testing that we do and talk about some of the changes that have happened. The SAT started almost a hundred years ago. It’s been a long time. The ACT came online quite a bit later, but still quite a while ago. They started in different places. The SAT started on the East Coast with the Ivy League, and the ACT started in Iowa City, Iowa, so that was really focused on people in the middle of the country. Eventually the SAT became really big on both the West Coast and East Coast, and the ACT continued to have most prominence in the Midwest and parts of the South. Over time the tests had changed quite a bit, especially the SAT. Over the time that I’ve been doing this (about thirty years) it’s changed about four times.
We’re going to talk about is what should parents of sophomores (current sophomores who will be juniors next year), what should they be thinking about at this time, and what should the kids be thinking about in terms of how to use their summer.
