College Board has reformatted and redesigned the SAT test, and it will be implemented in the spring of 2016.

STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness)
The STAAR is a Texas public school, state-mandated, standardized test that is used to access the knowledge and command of academic concepts per a specific grade level. Students take the STAAR test in the spring beginning in the third grade through the eighth grade. Students in grades nine through twelve take end of course exams (EOC) throughout the academic year.
Contact Ottimmo today to get your child the instruction and tutoring he or she needs to build confidence and to achieve academic success on the STAAR test.
Credit by Exam
Credit by Exam allows students to test out of a subject/course or make up failed credits for certain high school classes by showing mastery of that subject. Students are tested for their knowledge of a course based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) adopted by the Texas State Board of Education.
Ottimmo provides tutoring, reviews, and test preparation for all subjects for the CBE. Contact us today for more information.
Advanced Placement (AP) Exams
AP exams are administered in May following the completion of AP high school courses. Many colleges and universities throughout the United States use AP exam scores when considering admission, and students can be granted credit hours based on their AP test results.
