How can a tutor help your child master the SSAT?
The Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) is a standardized test that many private schools use as a factor in their admissions process. Students from grades three through eleven can take the SSAT. There are three different levels, including elementary, middle, and upper. The elementary level can be taken by students in grades three and four. The middle level 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 consists of four sections, including quantitative, verbal reasoning, reading comprehension, and an essay. The quantitative section consists of geometry and spatial sense, measurement and probability, algebra and functions, operations, and properties. The verbal reasoning section includes analogy questions and vocabulary. The reading comprehension section requires students to answer questions based on reading passages. The essay section does not count as a part of your child's total score, but it is sent to any school they are applying to so that the school can assess their skills as a write. As such, it is still a good idea for your child to prepare for this section.
