SAT and ACT Practice Tests

Take a full-length diagnostic test in order to get a detailed score report that can help generate your optimum study plan. Use data to help you study smarter instead of longer!

You may have had some exposure to these tests, but now is the time for practice! The score reports generated from the practice test will allow students to better focus their study for the real SAT/ACT. We teach students not only what to study, but how to study smart. Students will practice strategies that will help them take charge of their learning and improve the productivity of their study sessions.

Why should you take a practice test?

Great question! Taking a full-length practice test is important for two reasons:

1. These tests help you prepare for the real test!

2. The diagnostic results from your practice test allow us to track areas of greatest potential improvement.

See the sample score report!

Is this a real test and will scores be reported?

This is a PRACTICE TEST and the practice test will be an authentic ACT/SAT test but the scores will NOT be reported to any schools or college board.

Students will receive the following:

  • Valuable practice to prepare for the actual test date
  • A score
  • A diagnostic score report that breaks down student performance by subject area
  • A score consultation and recommended course of study based on diagnostic testing information


Take a study session, too!

Key Learning Center's Tutoring Connection is hosting study sessions for the SAT and ACT. We highly recommend students participate in a full-length practice test to prepare them for effective studying. We will score these practice tests for students and give them valuable feedback on their results.
