College Readiness Testing at CHS:
Caldwell High School is striving to provide the best education for your child. We can accomplish this in part by testing to see what skills your student has and which ones they need help to strengthen. So, we have implemented a series of standardized tests to assess your child and to prepare them for higher learning after they leave us. Here is a breakdown of what we are doing this year.
Freshmen: All Freshmen will take the PSSS in January(in school).
This test measures critical reading, mathematics, and writing skills using the pre-disclosed 2013 PSAT/NMSQT Saturday test form. Educators can use the PSSS to help guide and inspire students as they plan for their future. Students can use the PSSS to familiarize themselves with the types of questions, instructions, and format they will encounter on the PSAT/NMSQT and SAT.
Sophomores: All Sophomores took the PSAT in October (in school)
The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program cosponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT®. It also gives you a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools.
The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills and writing skills.
Juniors: All Juniors will take the SAT in April (in school).
The SAT and SAT Subject Tests are a suite of tools designed to assess your academic readiness for college. These exams provide a path to opportunities, financial support and scholarships, in a way that's fair to all students. The SAT and SAT Subject Tests keep pace with what colleges are looking for today, measuring the skills required for success in the 21st century.
Seniors: All College Bound Seniors should retake the SAT or take the ACT before February(on their own)
Information about the test dates are found in our counseling office and on their websites.
