There are three main approaches to supporting students using Official SAT Practice. Districts or schools can decide which is the best approach—or combination of approaches—to implement Official SAT Practice at their school.
Independent Practice: Students practice individually or in study groups at home. Parent involvement is essential to encouraging independent practice.
Extracurricular Practice: Students practice in study hall, after-school sessions, or with a community-based organization.
Teacher-Guided Practice: Students practice in class, using Official SAT Practice as a learning tool. Teachers incorporate independent practice into the class period and answer student questions.
The following materials explain how to implement Official SAT Practice.
