SAT: Advice from Instruction Counselors: Tutorial 8
Sarah Newlin, Testive’s Information Counselor Outreach Consultant, is exploring how guidance counselors are generally preparing for the fresh new SAT and what advice are going to giving mother and father and pupils.
Therefore what are information counselors telling their students about the DIFFERENT SAT? Actually, not all lots of just yet. Nearly everyone is still finding out for themselves exactly what changes really mean for the examination content and many don’t need to pile unneeded stress against students and oldsters.
