Description

ENRICHri is pleased to announce Rhode Island's premiere screening of "The Test & The Art of Thinking". Shown at select locations across the country, this documentary about the SAT gives voice to many of the issues the test engenders. It was created with hope to spark thought and conversation.

Watch the trailer

Andrew Palumbowill be the featured guest speaker for the evening, facilitating a discussion following the movie. Mr. Palumbo is the Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and is well-versed on the topic of test-optional admission policies. This past summer he participated in a panel presentation with one of the high school counselors from the film.

About the film:

Parents, educators, students and college admissions professionals all intimately understand the financial, emotional and intellectual burden of the SAT/ACT—tests that are not only an integral part of the college admissions process for most American students, but also can be a rite of passage for teenagers in the United States. Even as adults, few of us forget our score, or how we felt about what it took to earn it.

The Test & the Art of Thinking traces the history and evolution of the SAT/ACT as a major player on the pathway to higher education in America, and it documents its current power in our culture. In so doing, it strives to support individuals who are embarking on the road to college, by examining what the SAT/ACT measures and means, and asking a range of educational leaders, admissions professionals and stakeholders in the test—from tutors to parents to test designers—to grapple with the test’s use, ramifications and future.
