Testing

11th Grade

The PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test) was given to identified college bound juniors on Wednesday, October 25th in order to provide these juniors with yet one more opportunity to plan and prepare for the SAT's.  During the last two weeks of January, counselors had individual meetings with these students to discuss their scores, compare last year and this year's scores, and recommend when they should begin to take the SAT's in preparation for college.  Lastly, suggestions were made for students to access and utilize Khan Academy's personalized learning plan in order to provide them with one of the best opportunities to improve their score heading into the SAT's.

The PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test) was given to all 10th graders on Wednesday, October 25th in order to provide all BAHS students with baseline results on how prepared they are for post-secondary training & educational opportunities.  During the week of January 22nd, counselors provided students with an overview of their results, overall score interpretation, and even more specific results and data on how their scores compared with other sophomores nationwide in the areas of math and reading/writing.  Furthermore, students were encouraged to either take our SAT prep class next year and/or link their PSAT scores to Khan Academy in order to develop a free, individualized study plan that addresses their weaknesses on this test.

 

9th Grade

9th graders will be exposed to the Career Cruising program (www.careercruising.com) in the first semester of their Success 101 classes in order to formally begin the career exploration process.  The timing of the use of this program is crucial as students begin selecting their 10th grade courses including elective choices in February.  Students will have the opportunity to take a highly accurate assessment tool entitled, the "Career Matchmaker Interest Inventory" which is based on a methodology that is respected and admired everywhere it is used as it has been noted that it is more powerful than any other interest assessment.  In fact, Matchmaker doesn't just provide students with a ranked list of careers they should learn more about, it explains why.  Furthermore, the depth of this assessment tool gives students valuable insights that they can use as a springboard to further career exploration and discover, making the learning process a rewarding and enriching experience!
