TESTING

Schoolsearch offers a quiet, intimate, supportive environment for children taking all levels of the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) test as well as the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Text) flex test.

Entrance Exam Testing for ISEE and SSAT

In order to meet one of the school requirements for entrance, students applying for the fifth through twelfth grades will need to take an entrance exam.  In the Boston area, students applying for a placement in grades five through eight, usually take the ISEE. This is a three hour exam offered by Schoolsearch in small groups. We offer this test frequently throughout the school year.  You do not have to be a client of Schoolsearch to take your testing with us.

For those students applying to both day and boarding schools beginning in the ninth grade, the SSAT (Secondary School Academic Test) is often required.  We also offer this three hour exam in small groups throughout the school year.  For further information please contact our office at: 781-455-1452.

Academic and Cognitive Testing

In order to understand your child's intellectual strengths and weakness, and to meet the entrance requirements of some schools, the (WISC) Wechsler Intelligence Tests is often administered.  These tests observe a student's verbal comprehension, perceptual organizational skills, working memory, and processing speed.

Each test is administered to a specific age group:

The WPPSI (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence) is administered to students who are two and a half years old to seven years and three months.  The WISC-IV (Wechsler Individual Scale for Children) is used with students who are six to sixteen years old.   The WAIS-R (Wechsler Adult Intelligent Scale) is administered to adults who are sixteen years and older.  Schoolsearch administers each of these tests.
