SSAT考试是美国、加拿大等国私立中学的非常重要的入学考试,是美国一些独立的非盈利机构主办的一种全国性私立中学入学考试,由美国、加拿大等国私立学校自行选用。SSAT为Secondary School Admission Test的首字母缩写,即为美国中学入学考试。它虽然主要是为了中学入学,但是,目前也在私立学校5、6年级的入学审核中广泛使用。

SSAT主要是测量学生的数学、英文程度及理解力。测验分为数学(Quantitative)、语文(Verbal)、阅读(Reading)、作文(Writing sample)四部分;并分为低年级(目前就读5-7年级的考生)、和高年级(目前就读8-11年级的考生)两种检测。

SSAT考试创办于1957年,由位于美国新泽西州普林斯顿市的中学入学考试委员会SSATB(Secondary School Admission Test Board)命题。SSAT在全球有600多个考场。SSAT和ISEE考试内容相似,难度相同,只是考试形式有一些区别。SSAT和ISEE考试均由英文、数学和作文组成。SSAT在美加以外地区的考试,每年于11、12、1、3、4月举行,中国地区的考试地点为上海,考前四周报名截止。在美国每年举办7次考试,在北美以外的国家和地区每年兴办5次考试。具体情况登陆SSAT官方网站: http://www.ssat.org。SSAT主要是测量学生的数学、英文程度及理解力,SSAT考试作文不计分,但会被送到报考学校的招生部门作为录取的参考。SSAT考试分为低年级(在读5-7年级的考生)和高年级(在读8-11年级的考生)两种考试。

We had had a consuming desire to see a pony rider, but somehow or other all that passed us streaked by in the night, and so we heard only a whiz and a hail, and the swift phantom was gone.

But now the driver exclaims, "Here he comes!" Every neck is stretched and every eye strained.

Away across the endless dead level of the prairie a black speck appears against the sky. Soon it becomes a horse and rider, rising and falling, sweeping nearer and nearer, and the flutter of hoofs comes faintly to the ear. Another instant a whoop and hurrah from our upper deck, a wave of the rider's hand, but no reply, and man and horse burst past our excited faces and go winging away like a belated fragment of a storm!
