When you begin accepting the SSAT for admission, it’s essential to create a baseline for your current student mix with which to compare incoming applicant scores.
The SSAT Benchmark test is a complete version of the SSAT provided at minimal cost to schools that wish to test current enrolled students to establish a benchmark of the cognitive skills results of the students who are already enrolled.
* If you register more than 100 students for a single test administration, the additional students above 100 can be tested at no additional charge.
Benchmark testing allowed us to know the range of kids we already had in the building and gave us a better idea of the students we are capable of serving. This informed us in a way that made our admission gateway even more open - a surprise to those who were worried that an admission assessment would limit admission.
