Because of COVID-19 many colleges are waiving the standardized testing requirement for the upcoming year(s), while others have become test-optional. 

For test-optional schools, students may want to include test scores because (1) they believe their ACT, SAT, or Subject Test score reflects positively on their academic abilities, or (2) the student is seeking a merit scholarship, honors program, or advanced placement that requires test scores.


The Next Practice Tests Will Be Offered Virtually in November

Issaquah High PTSA is partnering with Huntington Learning Center to offer SAT and ACT practice exams, helping students study smarter and gain confidence. 

The SAT and ACT are standardized tests that colleges use as part of their application process.  These tests are administered by the College Board and American College Testing respectively.    To learn more about them and the differences between them, see our FAQ 

Our mock SATs and ACTs allow students to take real SAT and ACT exams, but the results are not official and are not sent anywhere.  Instead, Huntington Learning Center will collect and grade them and then, in a session a few nights later, will apprise students and parents of their scores and provide feedback.

Our practice SATs and ACTs are different from the Preliminary SAT (“PSAT”), an exam also known as the PSAT/NMSQT® (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test), where the highest achievers can earn national merit scholarships.  IHS administers the PSAT once each academic year during the school day.  More information about the PSAT is available on our FAQs.
