What types of material will an Omaha SSAT assist my child with?

The Omaha SSAT classes include content similar to what will be on the actual exam. Instructors will provide an in-depth, comprehensive review of the concepts, topics, and subjects that provide additional knowledge of the material on the exam. Your student will have the chance to ask questions and for further individual assistance in specific areas that they may have trouble understanding. The comprehensive exam has five sections for the Elementary Level and six sections for the Middle and Upper Levels. Also, in the Middle and Upper levels, wrong answers will result in a quarter of a point deduction in regards to their score.

The Upper Level includes students that will be in ninth through eleventh grade. The total test time for the Upper-Level SSAT is two hours and fifty minutes. The Quantitative Section focuses on related mathematical questions. The skills that your students will be asked to demonstrate include but are not limited to solving algebraic problems, line equations, graphing, properties of triangles, and word problems. The Verbal and Reading sections cover the reading and vocabulary elements of English. These sections will ask your student to show their knowledge of synonyms, Greek and Latin prefixes, identification of main ideas, determining the author's purpose, and antonyms. The final section is Writing. Your student will write a response to one of two prompts and create an essay or story that reflects writing skills, persuasive writing techniques, and the ability to provide support through examples.

The Middle Level of the SSAT includes students that will be in the sixth through eighth grade. The total test time for the Middle-Level SSAT is also two hours and fifty minutes. Similar to the Upper Level, the Reading and Verbal sections are English-related. Your student must show the ability to interpret meaning from narrative and argumentative passages and have a strong understanding of the functions of synonyms and analogies. Topics, such as the knowledge of the relationships of words and phrases, are also incorporated into each section of the exam. Mathematics is the central focus of the Quantitative Reasoning section of the SSAT. Students should become comfortable with responding to questions about using variables, equations, area, and perimeter or geometric shapes and coordinate geometry. Once your student begins the Writing section of the SSAT, they will also provide a written response to a prompt. The Writing section will reflect the student's proper use of punctuation, grammar, and writing skills.

The Elementary Level of the SSAT is for students that will begin the fourth and fifth grades. The total test time for the Elementary Level of the SSAT is one hour and fifty minutes and does not have an additional Quantitative Reasoning section like the Middle and Upper Levels.
