We at Test Innovators believe that students can improve and that standardized tests ought to be a roadmap for improvement. Recipients of the Independent School Tuition Scholarship will be given $1,000 (USD) towards tuition at their new school. These merit scholarships will be granted to the six students with the greatest score improvements.
Applications are due by May 15, 2019, 11:59 PM PST.
Winners will be notified by email on June 1, 2019.
The two score reports must:1) show results from the 2018-19 testing season2) show results for the same test (i.e., one ISEE score report and one SSAT score report will not be an eligible entry)
To measure improvement, overall test percentile scores will be used. For the ISEE, this will be calculated as the average of all section percentiles. 3 students will be granted scholarships based on overall score improvement (percentile point increase between official tests), and 3 students will be awarded scholarships based on the greatest percent possible score improvement (for instance, with a starting test score in the 90th percentile, the highest possible increase is 9 percentile points. A student then achieving the 99th percentile on the subsequent test would be ranked at 100% for the purposes of our scholarship. If that student achieved the 98th percentile, they would be ranked at 8/9 or 89% for the purposes of our scholarship.) Ties will be broken by random selection.
Students who are awarded a scholarship will not be eligible for concurrent Test Innovators scholarships or for future Test Innovators scholarships.
The $1,000 scholarship award can be used towards 2019-20 school year tuition only.
Applications will not be considered without this component.
