Jed Applerouth

Description

The world of standardized testing has changed rapidly in the last few months - spring SAT and ACT test dates were postponed, APs became at-home, open-book exams, and the ACT’s move to computer-based testing will soon be here. Many colleges will be “test optional” for the year, but does that mean students should be opting out of testing altogether? Students need a solid game plan to guide them in this new testing environment. Join Jed Applerouth, PhD to learn about standardized testing in the 2020-2021 school year and how students can best prepare.
