Tutoring for SSAT Secondary School Admissions Test
The SSAT test, an admissions test required of applicants to many private schools, is designed to measure verbal, reading and quantitative skills to determine the student’s overall skill level in these basic categories. The test is available at three levels: Elementary, Middle and an Upper Level, intended for grades 3-4, 5-7 and 8-12 respectively. The test is scheduled 8 times a year and available at locations throughout the US. It is a “norm-referenced” test, meaning that scores are determined based on a comparison to a relative group of test-takers with similar scores.
The SSAT covers the following topics:
- SSAT Math
- SSAT Verbal
- SSAT Reading Comprehension
- SSAT Essay Writing
The SSAT is meant to give admissions officers a good idea of student skill levels. The best way to prepare for this skills-based approach is to review and practice grade-level appropriate basic concepts and skills in the above categories. These are topics your child will probably have encountered in the classroom, but may not have fresh exposure to, or may have struggled with or missed in the original introduction.
