Coalition for Access & Affordability Application An unprecedented coalition of diverse public and private colleges and universities has come together to improve the college admission application process for all students. The Coalition has developed a free platform of online tools to streamline the experience of applying to college.

Common Application

The Common application is the recommended form of many selective, independent colleges and universities for admission to their undergraduate programs. Many of these institutions use the form exclusively. All give equal consideration to the Common Application and the college's own form. Don't forget to read "Getting started with eDocs" and "Understanding FERPA" before you start the application. Remember....start after August 01.

Connecticut Academic Performance Tests

CAPT Tests: WHS students are required to meet performance graduation requirements in reading, writing, and mathematics. Although there are other pathways to meet these requirements, students who achieved goal on the CAPT subtests in Mathematics, Reading Across the Disciplines, or Writing Across the Disciplines will have met the requirements. Please see your Counselor if you have any questions.

Standardized Tests

ACT Assessment Test

The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement test made up of four separate exams in English, reading, mathematics and science. It is the only national college entrance exam to include a science test. An optional writing test is available.

Actual testing time is 2 hours and 55 minutes. The optional Writing Test adds another 30 minutes to the overall test.

Virtually all colleges and universities in the United States, including all of the Ivy League schools accept the ACT; please check your college's requirements.

Today, with the introduction of the new SAT, many colleges and universities are offering students the opportunity to take the ACT with Writing in lieu of SAT I and any required SAT IIs. Check your application for testing requirements and information.

If you take the ACT more than once, a separate record for each test date is maintained. If you request to send a report to a college, the ACT will release only the scores from the test date you indicate.

FYI: Colorado and Illinois have administered the ACT to all public high school students.

According to ACT, "students who traditionally took the ACT Assessment were "self-selected", that is, just those interested in applying for college admission". Researchers can now compare the scores of this self-select group to the state groups. Their finding? "The average Composite scores for males and females are virtually equivalent".

Reminder...... Currently, WHS is not an ACT testing site. Visit the ACT Web site @ www.actstudent.org for testing locations.

The SAT I

PSAT

A new PSAT was administered for the first time in the fall of 2004. The changes to the PSAT/NMSQT parallel some of the changes to the SAT I. However, there is no essay. The PSAT is be based on the principle of aligning the test more closely to high school curricula and college skills. There are no analogies and quantitative comparison items.
