The ISEE is The Independent School Entrance Exam for student in 4th through 11th grade who wish to apply to independent elementary and secondary schools for the following year: The Lower Level is for candidates applying to 5th and 6th grade, The Middle Level is for candidates applying to 7th and 8th grade, and The Upper Level is for candidates applying to 9th grade and above.
The ISEE consists of multiple choice questions in four areas: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, and Math. There is also an essay, which is not scored, but is submitted to the school to which you apply as a writing sample.
The ISEE is quite coachable, and preparing for the test will make a positive impact in a student's score, stamina, and confidence.
The ISEE exam is 2 hours and 40 minutes for Upper and Middle Levels and 2 hours and 20 minutes for Lower Level.
The majority of the testing dates for the ISEE are in the fall and early winter. Because of the Los Angeles private school deadlines, most students will take the test in December or early January. You must register through the ERB. Click here for registration information.
A student receives a percentile rank between 1 and 99 and a stanine score between 1 and 9.
A 75th percentile means that the student performed equal or better than 75% of the students tested in the past 3 years. The percentile ranks are then separated into nine ranges, or stanines. Because the scores are based on data regarding other students of the same grade, practice tests can only give a generalized idea of the final score, and not an exact reflection.
