So finally Collegeboard has woken up and drastically changed the SAT! They have taken out the vocabulary burden on students and the negative marking, having borrowed these from the ACT. Still, these two exams are not the same - don't let anyone get by stating otherwise: science is only in ACT, Math topics are not identical, the essays are miles apart, and reading section needs different techniques in each test, not to mention the more aggressive time factor in ACT. If you're confused about which test to take, Uwezo can help you decide. We have developed an Assessment that will categorically decide the better exam for a student - with justification!
We didn't stop there. Realizing that Reading Comprehension and Grammar are the two areas that particularly challenge students, we have developed our own tests which give an accurate picture of a student's strengths and weaknesses. In addition to in-class practice by topic and concept - for Math and English & Writing - we insist that students write a minimum of 10 mock exams. By tracking students' performance in each mock, we help them improve with each attempt. This is done through self-analysis and remedial classes as needed.
Utarget™ is a process that helps a student achieve his or her target score which was set right after the diagnostic test. After the student has attempted three mock exams, an analysis will reveal topics and areas where the student needs improvement. We can pinpoint exactly what the remedy is since we have categorized and typed each question on the mocks. After this analysis, any necessary remedial action is taken, and then the student moves on to the next mock exam. This process of Test-Review-Remedy is continued for the remainder of the mock tests, until the student is satisfied. Utarget™ is a focused, guaranteed way to achieve results.
SAT is only one of the components needed for college admissions. The US universities follow a holistic evaluation process that goes beyond academics and aptitude tests.
