PSAT TEST

The PSAT is the practice test for the SAT. All sophomores and juniors will take the PSAT during the school day on October 10th. This test will qualify juniors for the National Merit Scholar program.

Test Date: October 10, 2018 Location: Timberline Classrooms Cost: Free NOTE:

All 10th and 11th grade students in the Boise School District took the PSAT on October 10th. Students will be able to view their scores online beginning Wednesday, Dec 12th. The PSAT is the preliminary test for the SAT, which is used for college admission and scholarships. 

To access student scores on December 12th, students must have an online College Board account. To create an account, please visit https://www.collegeboard.org/ and click "sign up". I have also attached instructions about how to set up your account. 

In addition, I am attaching a sample score report to help you understand your student's scores. We also encourage students to link their PSAT scores to a tutoring site called Khan Academy. Linking your scores will give you personalized SAT practice. Students who study 20 hours on Khan Academy have an average 115 point increase from the PSAT to the SAT. Directions are attached.
