Standardized Testing During the Coronavirus Pandemic
There has always been an apparent achievement gap when it comes to college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT and this year the pandemic creates even more challenges for students writing these exams. This research project focuses on how these standardized tests have been affected during the coronavirus pandemic and how they are impacting students. Interviews with college counselors in a focus group will allow further data to be collected and analyzed. Ultimately, conclusions will be drawn to find a possible solution.
The AAR program is a unique opportunity for Palo Alto Unified School District students, in grades 10-12, to engage in original research in an area of their choosing. Students are paired with mentors who are experts in the field of the student's choosing.
