The SSAT is a difficult test. Many parents are lured into a false sense of security because their child gets good grades or has done well on previous standardized tests. Don’t be fooled: the Upper Level SSAT is big step up in difficulty. Don’t learn this lesson too late: admission to top boarding schools is very competitive, and SSAT scores play a huge role.
The first step of SSAT prep is to take a mock exam. Find out early how much studying your child needs and where they most need to focus. Also know that doing well on the SSAT takes more than just knowing material. Students must know how to take a standardized test. This means managing their time efficiently, handling their anxiety, and checking their work. These are not skills most students are ever taught, and many hurt their scores with test-taking errors.
Fortunately, any student can become a great test taker if they get the right feedback. They won’t get this feedback, however, from regular mock exams. Regular mock exams can show a student the material they need to learn, but not how they take a test and if they’re giving away points unknowingly. Only Biometric Edge mock exams give you this information.
Biometric Edge mock exams measure pulse and blink rate. We track eye movement, and we record time per question, all to show your child if they’re taking their exams the right way and where they can improve to perform their best. 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 their managing their time efficiently. This is crucial knowledge for students taking this difficult and highly competitive exam, and it can be the reason your child is accepted into their first-choice school.
