Testing Requirements

Each Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship applicant must submit scores for a school-administered, nationally-normed standardized test for the past two years (5th and 6th grade) if administered by the school/district.

In order to qualify for the Scholarship, applicants must be in the 9th stanine, 97th percentile or be marked as “exceeds” in in at least ONE qualifying subtest or total battery/composite on a standardized test for the past two years. Acceptable academic areas include keywords such as:

Mathematics, Mathematics Total, Quantitative Reasoning, Verbal, Verbal Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Language, Language Total, English Language Arts, Total Battery or Total Composite

Standardized test score reports should be included in the application packet sent directly to IEA by the applicant.

Students with no standardized testing record due to homeschooling or other reasons are still eligible to apply for the Scholarship.

To be eligible, all applicants must take either the ACT or the SAT Reasoning Test.

 

ACT or SAT

 

Every Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship applicant must take either the ACT or the SAT Reasoning Test to be eligible to apply. Both tests are accepted tools through which the student’s abilities and strengths may be understood. The Scholarship Committee only considers the Math and English/Critical Reading portions of these tests, as the CDB application provides the applicant several opportunities to showcase his or her writing abilities. To be eligible, applicants should receive a score of 20 or higher in either Math or Reading on the ACT or receive a score of 500 or higher in either Math or Critical Reading on the SAT.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to register for the test and arrange for the scores to be sent to IEA. Applicants who are 13 years or older may register online. Applicants under 13 years old must register by mail, due to Internet privacy laws. Be sure to allow extra time if registering by mail. If you took the SAT earlier this year, please contact The College Board to have a copy of your scores sent directly to IEA (use score code 3862). If you took the ACT earlier this year, please contact the ACT to have a copy of your scores sent directly to IEA (use score code 7818).

For questions regarding the SAT, please contact The College Board directly at (866) 756-7346 or through sat.collegeboard.org. For more information on the ACT, please call (319) 337-1270 or visit their website at www.actstudent.org.
