The Chelsea District Library will host a free SAT/ACT Combo Practice Test administered by Kaplan Test Prep on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at the Washington Street Education Center, 500 Washington St., Room 100.

The 3.5-hour combo practice test helps students decide which test is right for them. Students receive feedback comparing their performance on each of the analogous test sections of the two exams—for example, SAT math section vs. ACT math section. So, it’s an opportunity to experience both tests.

“Testing is a major hurdle for many college-bound students,” said Edith Burney, library youth and teen librarian in a press release. “Good scores on tests can mean scholarships, a better chance at acceptance to competitive schools, and more choice in planning students’ educational future.”

The library provides many resources to help students review and practice various tests. Kaplan’s practice test event is a great new tool for students to use in their testing preparation, she said.

The ACT is a nationally administered, standardized test used by many U.S. colleges and universities to assess applicants’ readiness for college.  The majority of competitive U.S. colleges and universities require students to submit a score from either the ACT or the SAT as part of their application.

All colleges that require a standardized test score will accept either.

Comprised of four scored sections (English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science) and an ungraded, optional Writing section, the ACT includes multiple-choice questions plus an optional essay prompt.

The SAT is a nationally administered, standardized test that helps colleges evaluate candidates. All colleges now accept scores from the SAT and ACT interchangeably.

“We are excited to partner with the Chelsea District Library in this venture as we envision several of our students taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity to prep for the SAT and ACT tests,” said Michael Kapolka, Chelsea High School principal.

The SAT/ACT Combo Practice Test is free and open to high school students. To register, call 734-475-8732 or visit www.chelsea.lib.mi.us and click on the Calendar tab.

A follow-up session will take place on Monday, Oct. 8 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Chelsea District Library. In this session, participants from the Sept. 29 combo practice test can find out how they did on the exam and learn what they can do to improve their results.
