On Wednesday, October 11, 2017 all Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors will take the PSAT/NMSQT. This test is an experience that prepares students to take the SAT test the Spring of their Junior year.
All students must have a College Board account to maximize the benefits and learning outcomes of the PSAT. The College Board is the organization that publishes the PSAT and SAT tests. The account offers students access to free practice resources through Khan Academcy and access to scores once a test is graded.
College Board partners with Khan Academy to provide personalized test results that are paired with a study plan tailored to your individual test results. For example, when your scores are reported you will also find statements about your strengths and weaknesses and content such as videos and practice problems to help you improve.
Students who took the PSAT in District 204 last year should have set up a Khan Academy account and linked it to their College Board account. Those students should log in to their Khan Academy account and update any contact information that has changed, paying close attention to the email address that is listed. Students who are new to the district or who have never taken a PSAT exam should sign up for a Khan Academy accounts as a new user. Again, students are to use their personal email to register.
