PSATs Tuesday, March 13, 2018
The PSAT is the preliminary SAT for 8th, 9th, and 10th graders. The PSAT tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT and the PSAT/NMSQT. The PSAT also establishes a baseline measurement of a student’s college and career readiness. It provides students with the following opportunities:
- To get ready for the SAT®. The PSAT is great prep for the SAT®. Your students will get familiar with the test questions and formats. Students who take the PSAT usually score higher on the SAT, on average, than those who do not.
- To build an SAT practice plan. Your students can access a personalized SAT study plan based on their results from the PSAT. They can identify the skills they need to work on and study at their own pace.
The College Board will not permit us to administer a make-up test for the PSAT, so all students should be in school and on time that day. Students will not be admitted to the test once it has begun.
Test location assignments for students will be posted on Monday, March 12, 2018 outside the middle school office. Students will remain at school following the PSAT test completion and attend afternoon classes.
If you have any questions regarding extended time, please contact Ashira Drury at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the test, all students should bring in at least two number 2 pencils (non-mechanical), an approved calculator, and snacks. Please refer to the College Board website for details regarding approved calculators: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/taking-the-tests/test-day-checklist/approved-calculators.
