The Character Skills Snapshot is an innovative online tool that measures students preferences toward seven character skills. Taken at home in approximately 25 minutes, it provides a richer, holistic view of your student. The Snapshot measures a student's preferences, attitudes and beliefs about their character and is meant to complement more traditional cognitive assessments such as the SSAT. The Snapshot highlights areas where schools can help your student grow and thrive. The skills on The Snapshot fall into three areas: skills that are intellectual in nature, skills that are intrapersonal in nature and skills that are interpersonal in nature.
The registration process for The Snapshot is easy. For SSAT test takers, The Snapshot is included free of charge. When you register for the SSAT, you will also be able to register to take The Snapshot - you will see a Snapshot button on the homepage of the student SSAT account.
For students not taking the SSAT, the fee for The Snapshot is $35.00. If the school to which you are applying uses The Snapshot, let them know you'll be taking it. If you don't see information about The Snapshot on a school's site, ask them if they are using it in their admission process.

Hundreds of schools use The Snapshot in their admission process. If you don't know if a school uses The Snapshot, simply inquire at the admission office.
Once the results report has been posted (see chart below), parents/guardians can send reports to any schools that have opted to receive Snapshot results (you cannot choose report recipients prior to report release). To send a report to a placement director at your school or an educational consultant, designate them as a report recipient once you receive your results. If your advisor or consultant is not an EMA member, download the PDF report and provide it to them.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
