Testing Webinar - provided by Mally Test Prep
Ever wonder which colleges only accept the ACT or only the SAT® for admissions? Curious about the differences between the two tests and which one would be right for your student? Wondering how the standardized testing landscape has changed with some schools trying out a "test optional" approach?
Join us as Michelle Rounick, Director of Operations and Curriculum Development at Mally A.C.T., answers all of these questions and more during this interactive and live webinar exclusive to only the families at Groves High School.
If you are unable to attend the webinar live, you can still register to receive a link to the recording. All registrants will receive FREE ACT® and SAT® diagnostic tests (a $200 value), using real and recent versions of both tests. Students who complete a test will receive a FREE detailed analysis of the results to pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses.
