There are many factors in a student’s application process: ISEE scores, school grades, ERB scores, teacher recommendations, and the school interview. Don’t let low ISEE scores be the factor that limits your student’s school options. The best way to improve your student's score is with personalized ISEE test prep with a private tutor from Davidson Tutoring.
The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) is a three-hour admissions test that has three levels:
|Verbal Reasoning||Consists of vocabulary and sentence completion|
|Quantitative Reasoning||Consists of word problems and quantitative comparisons|
|Reading Comprehension||Consists of reading passages and questions|
|Mathematic Achievement||Consists of mathematical problems with one or more steps|
|Essay *||Writing sample portion, which asks students to respond to a topic statement.|
The fall/winter test dates for the ISEE are typically released in August. Once the dates are available, you can register here. The ERB charges a $95 registration fee for the ISEE test.
Students can take the ISEE during three testing windows – Fall (August–November); Winter (December–March); and Spring/Summer (April–July). Students may take the test only once per window, or up to a maximum of 3 times in a 12-month admission cycle.
Your program start date depends upon the test date you select and which of our ISEE programs you choose. Generally speaking, our families usually begin instruction between July and early September.
The ERB provides "What to Expect" preparation materials at no cost when downloaded from their website. If you would rather have it in book form, you can buy it for $20. These materials offer parents and students the opportunity to review the types of questions presented on each level of the ISEE test, but are not meant to be training for exam strategies or “shortcuts.”
