Scores Back DAY!
Scores Back Day is always an emotional day for me.
What is Scores Back Day? It is the amazing day that luckily comes 7 times a year, when students start to get their scores back from the standardized tests.
Excitement and nerves, along with the determination of months of hard work, combine to the thrilling moment when a student (or a parent) login to the test company website to see the results! It is so emotional because I am bursting with pride as my students text me throughout the day!
My average student increase 4 points, so of course that means that some students go up more than 4 points, and some students may one increase 2 or 3 points. I can usually predict which students are going to see the larger increases based on the effort that goes into preparation.
It is a simple formula:
Practice + Confidence = Success
And the more your practice, the greater your confidence. It is actually pretty magical to witness when students realize how this works!
My ultimate goal for my students is to help them achieve their goals, whether it is to get a 20 on the ACT, a 36 on the ACT, or just to move their score up 2 points. Here are some results from the September 2022 National ACT Test:
Student A from a 25 to a 29
Student B from a 20 to a 25
Student C from a 17 to a 21
Student D from a 26 to a 32
Student E from a 26 to a 29
Student F from a 20 to a 24
