Johns Hopkins' Talent Search Testing - SAT

The SAT is a standardized multiple choice test usually used by colleges and universities to objectively determine students readiness for the rigors of college studies. Most students take this test in high school. As used by CTY, the SAT provides more information about a child’s mathematical and reading/verbal strengths. How is this? The SAT establishes a much higher “ceiling” than the grade-level exams children normally take. A child who tests in higher percentiles of the SAT is a very good candidate for more challenging course work and other modifications to a school curriculum. Such information should have a great impact on the future educational pathways.
