How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?
The Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) is a standardized test that is used by many private schools as a factor in their admissions process. The SSAT is available to students in grades three through eleven. There are three different levels of the exam, including elementary, middle, and upper. The elementary level exam is given to students in grades three and four. The middle level exam is offered to students in grades five through seven. Finally, the upper level exam is available to students in grades eight and above.
The test divided into four sections. These include a verbal reasoning section, a reading comprehension section, a quantitative section, and an essay section. The verbal reasoning section covers analogies and vocabulary. The reading comprehension section includes reading passages. The quantitative section consists of properties, operations, geometry and spatial sense, measurement and probability, and algebra and functions. The essay does not count as a part of your child's total score, but their essay and score will both be sent to any school they apply to.
