Stanford Binet V Preparation at Talent Prep
The Stanford Binet V is used as an entrance assessment for Round 1 of admissions into Hunter College Elementary School. The test is administered 1:1 with a psychologist approved by the school. At Talent Prep, we work with students to help them become familiarized with the concepts assessed through play based activities. Every child develops at a different pace and may require different amounts of time to become familiar with all the concepts.
We use play-based activities and progressive curriculum to help children build up the concepts and abilities in the 5 areas of Knowledge, Quantitative Reasoning, Fluid Reasoning, Working Memory, and Visual-Spatial Processing. We are NOT giving our students the training of how to take the test, but providing them a learning environment for developing their abilities to process different types of problems, which require the 5 competencies they will be tested in the 1st round of the admission test at Hunter. This is how we "prepare" our students.
During the past years, 46% of students from our Stanford Binet Program received an offer from Hunter Kindergarten program, compared to 1.52% overall acceptance rate (50 final seats from about 3,300 applicants).
