For entrance to the 2022-2023 school year, the Boston Exam Schools will not be requiring students to take an additional admission exam.
The Boston Public School System has selected NWEA to design the test for the 2022 Exam (for entrance to the 2023-2024 school year).
The new test will assess students’ grade-level reading and math, and will be aligned to Massachusetts learning standards. The test will reflect what students are studying in ELA and Math in Boston Public Schools (the MA Curriculum Frameworks standards). The test is untimed and there will be no essay. In terms of test preparation, tutoring companies have agreed that the best course of action is to prepare for ISEE-like content and strategy, while incorporating MCAS-based content that is closer to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. Our tutors have outstanding credentials in preparing students for standardized tests, including the ISEE, SSAT, and MCAS. We will customize our instruction and curriculum to prepare students for the content and strategies necessary to excel on the exam.
Tutors monitor growth and adjust instruction, so all the tutoring is customized to the students’ specific needs. Students will learn how to make the most of their time, and answer the questions with a deeper understanding of how the test is constructed. Many students feel test-taking anxiety, which can affect their score, and that is why stress-reduction techniques are integrated in the instruction process. Your child will be confident and prepared on test day.
An exclusive benefit of working with Boston Tutoring Services is that students will be trained with the most up-to-date and effective strategies. We have developed proprietary materials to maximize instruction, having thoroughly researched all of the current test preparation strategies and content.
