All 11th graders take the PSAT. Questions on the PSAT are designed to help students prepare for the SAT. The PSAT provides a personalized analysis of a student's area of weakness as well as specific suggestions for how to improve. Score reports show a numerical score of 20-80 for each area measured: Critical Reading, Mathematics and Writing Skills. By adding a zero the PSAT scores equate to SAT score of 200-800. Students are also given an access code to My College QuickStart™ that allows them to go online to see their projected SAT scores, learn how to improve them, review each test question, along with their answers and correct answers, and find critical college and career planning information.
