Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT)
The PSAT/NMSQT® is an excellent opportunity for students to understand and practice the requirements of the SAT®, which is a critical reasoning exam used as a criteria in college admissions. Tenth grade students who participate in the October administration of the PSAT/NMSQT® receive a detailed, electronic Student Score Report in December.
The Student’s Score Report provides students with a comprehensive skills’ analysis of their performance and gives them a code to access Khan Academy (https://www.khanacademy.org/sat) for personalized practice plans. Students may explore careers through Roadtrip Nation and BigFuture, features found under the Popular Tools tab.
Each individual Student’s Score Report identifies specific Advanced Placement courses in which the student is likely to succeed. In addition, each local school may identify students with potential to succeed in identified Advanced Placement courses thru AP Potential, a web-based program based on PSAT/NMSQT® data.
