The ISEE is difficult. Many parents are lured into a false sense of security because their child does well in school or has done well on their ERBS, but the ISEE is much harder, and high ERB scores and good grades don’t necessarily mean great ISEE scores. Don’t learn this lesson the hard way. Good private high schools and boarding schools are highly competitive, and ISEE scores play a huge role in admissions. Make sure your child is prepared.
The first step is to take a mock exam. A mock exam can serve as a roadmap for how much preparation your child needs and where they need to start. Also know that doing well on the ISEE depends on more than just knowing the material. Students must know how to take a standardized test. Being a good test taker is a skill, and it’s not a skill most students are ever taught.
Fortunately, any student can become a good test taker, but they need the right feedback. They need to know if they’re managing their time correctly, and as a parent, you need to know if they’re checking their work at the end. Regular mock exams can’t give you this information. They can show you the material a student needs to learn, but not if they’re throwing away points with test-taking errors. Only Biometric Edge mock exams can do that.
Biometric Edge mock exams measure pulse and blink rate. We track eye movement, and we record time per question, all to show students if they’re taking their exams the right way and where they need to improve. We can tell if students check their work. We can see if they’re re-reading passages when answering reading comprehension questions. We can tell how anxiety affects them and if they’re managing their time efficiently. This is crucial knowledge for students taking this highly competitive exam, and it can be the difference between getting into your first-choice school and getting rejected.
Biometric Edge’s online mock exams are convenient and adaptable to your schedule. After your child’s exam, their results are available within seconds. You’ll receive:
- Performance by topic
- Performance by level of difficulty
- Time spent on each question
- Average time spent on each question (of everyone who’s taken that exam)
- Video explanations for each question
- Pulse and blink rates
- Eye-tracking report
- A chart showing each time your child answered a question and if they checked their work
- A copy of the full exam
With this data, you can identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses, so they can focus on the areas where they need the most help. You can feel confident that your child is addressing their most pressing needs and that they aren’t giving away points with test-taking errors.
