PSAT®/SAT® Test DeMystifier – Teacher Professional Development

Cambridge’s Test DeMystifier Professional Development gives teachers a thorough understanding of the PSAT®/SAT® tests.  Teachers learn about test mechanics including the test structure and format; timing of each subject test – Reading, Writing and Language, and Math; tested content and skills within each subject and in what proportion; and analysis of the Essay, including the passage, prompt, and expectations.  With practice problems in Reading, Writing and Language, and Math, teachers learn high-value test-taking strategies for items most frequently encountered on the test; how different forms of “data” are integrated throughout the tests; how to address student-produced response questions, and about evidence-based questions.  Teachers also gain insight into the scoring of the tests and the aligned scale scores for any suite of exams.
