The Independent School Entrance Exam, commonly referred to as ISEE, is a special form of testing conducted by independent schools. It is one of the most secure, valid, and reliable examinations around. It is developed and administered by the ERB, or Educational Records Bureau.
There are many advantages in taking the Independent School Entrance Exam. For starters, it provides standardized assessment of skills and determines how a learner performs against others his or her age. In addition, it is also formulated and conducted in line with the standards of the National Council of Teachers of English, Internal Reading Association, and National Council of Teacher of Mathematics among others. Every item of the Independent School Entrance Exam is carefully examined by statisticians so you’re assured that they are all relevant and suited for their age or level.
For those who are interested in taking the Independent School Entrance Exam, you can easily prepare for it by taking an ISEE practice test. Indeed, taking a practice test is one of the most common and helpful ways to prepare for the ISEE.
Thanks to the internet you can even get free ISEE practice questions online. Many education and test prep websites offer ISEE practice tests, some of them for free. There are also sites that feature online games that could be helpful in preparing for the ISEE.
It’s imperative for your child to pass the Independent School Entrance Exam especially if you want her to be admitted in some of the country’s most competitive schools.
