There may be a potential new competitor to the ACT and SAT tests on the horizon. Vector A.R.C. (Assessment of Readiness for College) is seeking volunteers with PSAT, ACT and/or SAT schools to beta test its new college readiness test at the Great Home School Convention – Midwest this weekend at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati.
This new college readiness test is supposed to be independent of copyrighted standards such as the Common Core. It seems to be targeted toward students of altnernate curricula such as the home school market.
According to Vector A.R.C., “Whether a child was educated in a homeschool, private, or public school setting the new Vector ARC must measure each one’s abilities accurately, in order for real choice to exist.” We are big believers in competition and plan to keep you posted on this new product depending on how its beta test and future marketing and development proceed.
