- ACT Test (American College Testing)
Is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions. It consist of four tests: English, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Natural Sciences. Beginning in the spring of 2015, the ACT is offered as a computer-based test that will incorporate some optional ‘Constructed Response Questions’. The test content, composite score, and multiple choice format will not be affected by these changes. The ACT will continue to be offered in the paper format for schools that are not ready to transition to computer testing. The main four tests are scored individually on a scale of 1–36, and a Composite score is provided – it is the whole number average of the four scores.

The SAT is offered 8 times in a year and takes 3 hours and 45 minutes. The NEW SAT will be offered starting in March 2016.

- FSA Exam (Florida Standards Assessment)
The Florida Standards Assessment is the new test provided to all school level children in the State of Florida beginning on the 2014-2015 school year. It replaces the FCAT. This new FSA exam will be provided to all 3rd through 11th graders in Florida. It is a computer based assessment test with emphasis in Math and ELA. Tutor Doctor tutors have been preparing for the new test and ready to provide the necessary support to all students on the common core skills the new test requires.
The Florida Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA) were approved by the Florida State Board of Education in February 2014 and will be fully implemented in grades K–12 in the 2014–2015 school year. All Florida schools will teach the Florida Standards, and the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) has contracted with the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to develop and administer new statewide assessments. These FSA assessments will provide parents, teachers, policy makers and the general public with information regarding how well students are learning the Florida standards.
The following Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) will be administered for the first time in Spring 2015:
- Grades 3–11 English Language Arts (Writing component in grades 4–11)
- Grades 3–8 Mathematics
- Algebra 1 End-of-Course Assessment
- Geometry End-of-Course Assessment
- Algebra 2 End-of-Course Assessment
- PSAT (Preliminary SAT)
Students register for the exam through their high schools that are members of the College Board. The PSAT is also known as NMSQT or National Merit Scholarship Qualification Test. The test is composed of three sections: Math, Critical Reading, and Writing Skills, and takes two hours and ten minutes to complete. Each of the three sections is scored on a scale of 20 to 80 points, which add up to a maximum composite score of 240 points. This parallels the SAT, which is graded on a scale of 200 to 800 (the narrower range is to distinguish from which test a score comes and to denote less accuracy). However, unlike the new (2005) SAT, the new PSAT does not include higher-level mathematics (e.g., concepts from Algebra II) or an essay in its writing section (which was added to the SAT in 2005).The test is mostly multiple-choice, but there are 10 open-response math questions that require takers to enter their responses on a grid. Students are allowed to use calculators on the math sections.
The PSAT/NMSQT is not only a preview for the SAT but also used to determine very important national merit scholarships. Tutor Doctor has assisted many students in preparing for this test..
