Standardized Testing

Standardized Tests / College Placement Exams

Standardized tests (SAT, ACT, etc.) are required for admission into many post-secondary colleges, schools, and programs. They were created to level the academic playing field, producing a fair baseline with which to compare all students. In Idaho, the State requires students to take a standardized test in order to graduate high school. At Clark Fork High School, we are proud to offer not only the required standardized tests, but also preparatory tests in a student’s early high school career. We are also happy to offer most of these tests at no cost to the student. While a standardized test does not define a student, many colleges and scholarships will carefully consider a student’s test score when making decisions. How heavily weighted the test scores are in the decision process varies from school to school. So study for them and do your best, but know that colleges and scholarships will also be looking at things like GPA, course rigor, class rank, recommendations, work experience, community service, talents and extracurricular activities.
