If your student is getting ready to take the ISEE, Varsity Tutors can help them get ready with a Milwaukee ISEE class that offers more review than a study guide alone. The Independent School Entrance Exam, normally called the ISEE, is one of the commonly used entrance exams for students seeking admission into a private or independent school. If they were previously enrolled in a public school or transferring to a new private school in a different city or state, this exam could be used to help determine admission at their preferred school.

If your student is concerned about the layout of the test, not sure what to expect, or needs additional help in one of the sections, a Milwaukee ISEE prep course can provide the solution they need. With this kind of assistance, the student can take advantage of live classes that are held online and led by an expert instructor. ISEE courses from Varsity Tutors help students learn more about the test and what's on it.

The ISEE has four sections, along with an additional essay portion for the Upper, Middle, and Lower Levels. Primary students have a similar test, but with fewer questions and fewer sections overall.

What could a Milwaukee ISEE class help my student review?

The ISEE contains the following sections in the to Lower, Middle, and Upper Level exams: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Math Achievement, and an Essay. Primary students in Level 2 have an Auditory Comprehension section, which does not apply to any other level. Unlike the older students, Primary Level 2 through Level 4 students do not have the Verbal or Quantitative reasoning sections.

Let's start by looking at what is included in the Auditory Comprehension segment. This portion of the exam consists of 6 questions to be answered in 7 minutes. The questions are based on passages that involve both fiction and non-fiction.

Primary Levels 2, 3, and 4 all have a Reading section, where students must answer multiple-choice questions related to vocabulary and the student's ability to comprehend a passage. Next is a Math portion, which includes multiple-choice questions about basic math operations depending on the grade level.

Finally, these young students are responsible for a Writing sample. Here, they are given a picture as a prompt and asked to create a story around the picture. This allows the school to see more of the student's creativity and writing abilities and can also evaluate their grasp of the English language.

Students in Upper, Middle, and Lower Levels have a more comprehensive test, although the test doesn't change much across these different age ranges in terms of the number of questions and time to answer them. The content where your student will see changes depending on which level they complete.

Verbal Reasoning is the first part of the test, giving students 20 minutes to answer 40 questions. Here, synonym usage is tested, along with prefixes, roots, and suffixes for all grade levels. All students must identify vocabulary that they are expected to know depending on their grade level.

Quantitative Reasoning involves 35 minutes to answer 37 questions and gives schools a better idea of what math skills the student possesses. These types of questions tend to focus more on the ability to use mathematical thinking rather than operations. Common topics assessed include calculating the mean, median, mode, and range, solving equations, and working with data sets and geometric shapes for Upper Level test-takers. Middle Level students are tested on fractions, using distributive property, and finding the length of a line. Lower Level students must demonstrate logic and basic concepts such as addition and subtraction, along with geometric shapes.

Reading Comprehension is the next section, giving students 35 minutes to answer 36 questions that test their vocabulary and ability to support main ideas. Students in the upper level must know cause and effect, compare and contrast information from passages, and know the difference between information that is explicit and information that is inferred. Middle school students use information from passages to find the cause and effect of something while demonstrating the difference between literal and figurative language, while Lower Level students identify main ideas and locate crucial points to a passage.

The Math Achievement section involves 47 questions in 40 minutes. Upper Level students show their ability to use measurement, algebra, and probability in various problems, such as word problems while working with variables and exponents. Middle Level students use prime factorization, multiples, and show how well they know a Venn Diagram. Finally, Lower Level students use basic 2-and 3-dimensional figures, estimation and decimals in their work.

The Essay portion is the last part, which involves writing one prompt within 30 minutes. This part of the test gives schools a better idea of how a student thinks, what their personality is like, and shows how creative they are, which isn't normally displayed in the typical standardized test. All prompts are topics of interest at the correct age level.
