PSAT Accommodations for Grade 11 Students
This October, South County High School eleventh graders will have the opportunity to take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). General information about the test is available on the PSAT testing update webpage, and we will share more specifics about PSAT testing in September. Final testing decisions will be based on health department guidance.
Because the PSAT is operated by the College Board, students with disabilities may only access testing accommodations that have been approved by College Board. If you have a student with disabilities in eleventh grade this school year who may need a new College Board testing accommodation, please review the PSAT accommodations information and return your input and consent to us by Tuesday, August 18, 2020.
Any current 11th graders who submitted requests through the College Board for accommodations for their PSAT or AP exams as 10th graders will not need to submit a request to renew their accommodations. Once requested and approved, accommodations remain in place for all College Board testing.
PSAT Score Reports - December 2019
Scores for the 2019 PSAT/NMSQT are expected to be released to students on December 9, 2019. All information about score structure and reports is available online. (https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/scores)
Students will be able to view scores via the College Board's website (https://studentscores.collegeboard.org/home) using their student ID or access code. Students who do not currently have a College Board online account will need to create one to view scores. Students who already have College Board online accounts must use the same email address to access their account as in previous years.
Help for Students Who Can't Access their Scores: After students log in to their College Board account, they should click "Add Scores." In the "Matching Tool," it is essential that the College Board account information matches what students entered on their PSAT answer sheet. For example, if a student bubbled "Elizabeth" on her PSAT answer sheet but created her College Board account using the name "Beth," her scores will not load. Students who need to change their name to match must call College Board Customer Service at 1-866-630-9305. All other changes may be made within the student's account. SCHS cannot make any account changes for students.
It is also important for students to choose the correct test name and year. All students should choose 2019 as the test year since the exam was taken in October 2019. Students still unable to locate their scores will be prompted to indicate which test is missing and enter the access code to assist the matching process. Students should contact their counselors to get their individual access codes.
