A Program To Help College Bound Students Improve Their Verbal Scholastic Aptitude Test Scores.
Teague, Alan B.
Improving the verbal scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) of a group of 20 high school juniors was addressed by the implementation of an SAT coaching program. A computer program, "SAT Success," and a video, "SAT Prep Video," along with practice tests from the Educational Testing Service were employed. Students were self-paced through a 12-week period, reviewing skills and practicing types of questions found on the SAT. Simulated written tests were given throughout the program and a final comparison of the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) and the SAT verbal scores were utilized. The results indicated improvement of SAT verbal skills for the target group (only 12 of whom completed more than half of the program) as compared to a group of students in the same school who did not participate in the program. (One table of data is included; 19 references, a student survey on SAT preparation time, and three appendixes containing relevant data are attached.) (Author/RS)
