Some colleges require or recommend scores on college entrance exams (ACT, SAT and SAT subject tests) for admission. Over half of colleges/universities have become“test‐optional” for the Class of 2021, meaning that the institutions do not require students to submit college entrance exam scores for admission. Find SAT/ACT planning resources on the Eastlake College and Career Microsoft Classroom Team.
TheSATis a standardized college admission test featuring math, reading and writing sections. The SAT is administered by the College Board. Note: College Board made an announcement on 1/19/21 that they are eliminating the Optional Essay.
• Most of the exams will be held in the third (6/1-6/11) administrative windows using the digital format. The exceptions to that may be language exams due to proctor requirements and test-specific devices required again this year.
• All language exams (Spanish, French, etc.) and music theory are required by CB to be in-person.
• Physics C (Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism) will be held in-person.
• The remote testing platform will be different than last year and released April 8 (per CB), allowing for over a month for student exposure prior to exams begin. (Last year, students had less than a week!)
• Students that need a make-up date will be assigned the late testing window which will occur following the last administration window in June.
Eastlake Dean of Students, Devin Barrett, is the lead for Eastlake PSAT Test Day.
The PSAT/NMSQT that is typically held in October is now scheduled for Tuesday, January 26. This test date is only open to current 11th graders. Options for 10th graders will be evaluated in early 2021 and could include the PSAT 10 Assessment.
The deadline for signing up is December 2. The cost for current 11th graders to take the PSAT is $17. Payment will be collected in January. We will monitor conditions as we get closer to the test date to determine how/if we will be able to administer the test based on the signup counts.
