ACT/SAT Comparison & Common Core State Standards
A-List offers a training comparing the ACT and SAT and examining their key similarities and differences. It is important to review the fundamental differences between the ACT and SAT to determine which test is a better fit for your students and your program. Training can look to the tests alongside the implementation of the Common Core, offering advice on teaching both academic and non-cognitive skills to ensure students are prepared for college and beyond.
It is important to review the fundamental differences between the ACT and SAT to determine which test is a better fit for your students and your program. Some instructors feel students should take one test or the other. This training session will dissect the differentiation between the two tests, giving better insight on which test is most suitable for your students. Discussion topics include:
- Scoring and timing system for the ACT and SAT
- Point value for correct or incorrect answers on both exams
- Difficulty level and range of questions covered on both tests
- Content of each section on both the ACT and SAT
Though most students score comparably on the two exams, some students will find that a particular test will align better with their academic strengths.

…There is a need for the type of program you have developed to be made available to every child regardless of income. This is why I have brought A-List into school districts I have been fortunate enough to lead: to train our teachers and provide the support necessary to improve our students’ scores.
A-List was engaging and substantive for our students. Each week our Dreamers were completely immersed in the class’s content…The sessions were poignant, enjoyable, and challenging and exactly what I had hoped for my Dreamers.
This was by far the most useful professional development session I’ve attended in my career.
