High Stakes Mistakes

High Stakes Mistakes


So I’ve been doing test prep for lo these many years, both on my own and with various companies (Holla, Gayle!). I’ve decided to share my insights, thoughts about the whole industrial-educational complex, and of course any stories of hilarity and mayhem I’ve run across.

Potential topics:

ACT vs SAT–WTF should my kid do?

What does this score mean?

Why did they change the test, and is one better than the other?

Related: isn’t the ACT easier? (tl;dr: no, or it depends on the kid)

Don’t do this.

Do this.
