Key Education Leader Features Millikan Peer Tutor SAT Progress

Millikan Senior Camila Teagle-Alarcon joined College Board President David Coleman in Washington, DC to deliver a panel presentation on practicing for the SAT with the Khan Academy at a conference attended by about 900 educators and policymakers.

 

Teagle-Alarcon, a member of the Millikan AP Student Steering Committee's leadership team, is also a peer tutor who assists other students with homework, PSAT, and SAT practice.  She and other Millikan peer tutors report increases from their own PSAT scores to their SAT scores of up to 200 points thanks to their practice with the Khan Academy for the college admissions exam.

 

In the DC speech, Coleman noted that 2.5 million students are practicing for the SAT on the Khan Academy.  About 2,142 students at Millikan linked their College Board accounts to the Khan Academy last year.  Millikan offered a new PSAT practice course for sophomores utilizing the Khan Academy at AP Summer Bridge in August 2016.

 

In the panel discussion with Coleman, Teagle-Alarcon described the convenience of taking practice tests on her phone while waiting for her turn to compete in water polo tournaments.

 

"It was kind of a stress reliever," she told the audience at the Foundation for Excellence in Education conference.  "When I finished taking a test, I knew I was just another step towards reaching my goal."

 

PSAT scores from October 2016 will be available in late December; SAT scores were posted in November.  The SAT will be held again at Millikan on April 5 for all juniors; the PSAT will be administered in October 2017 for students in grades nine through eleven.

 

Students in grades 9-11 who would like help in accessing their scores and setting goals for improvement can join the peer tutor team in the library from 2:45 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays through Thursdays.  The AP Student Steering Committee is a club which meets every Friday at lunch in Room 755, the AP Resource Room.  The committee welcomes new members.

 

Scores on the SAT and PSAT exams analyze how ready students are for college and career.  The overall score ranges are below.
