New Features

We continually review educator feedback and portal usage data to identify areas for improvement. Periodically, you'll see improved report functionality, faster report run times, a more intuitive homepage and report selector, and other new enhancements based on your feedback.

Use this interactive walkthrough to get a detailed view of the portal and these improvements.

  • New homepage: A simpler, more intuitive homepage that's accessible to all portal users. It includes improved search functionality and a report history feature so you can quickly re-run your reports.
  • Student portal integration: When you drill down into your students' data within the portal you'll see a report that mirrors their online score reports. Seeing exactly what your students see makes it easier for you to walk students through their score reports and help them take action on their test results.
  • Multiple-choice scores before essay scores: Students' multiple-choice scores will be available in the portal as soon as they're released, even if a student's essay has not been scored yet.
  • New guided report selection feature: The "Help Me Choose" feature recommends which reports you should run based on what you need.
  • Bundled score and benchmark reports: You'll save time by delivering complementary reports together in one view. The former Scores by Institution, Benchmarks by Institution, and Essay Scores by Institution will be delivered together as one report, each accessible in their own tab. This updated report will be called "Scores and Benchmarks."
  • More frequent data refreshes: You'll be able to see updated information more frequently, with regular refreshes coinciding with scheduled score releases.

The following reports will be temporarily unavailable. We're working to make these reports available again on a rolling basis this fall. At that point, you'll be able to schedule and receive them in the portal within approximately 24 hours.

  • Demographic reports
  • Cohort reports
  • SAT Subject Test reports
  • Historical reports with data more than two years old

Administration-level reports for the current academic year and previous academic year will continue to be available in the portal on-demand, in real time.

We'll update this page as new features and reports are planned for.

Getting Started

With the right permissions, you can view score details and gather information that helps you support student growth; look for trends to inform curriculum, instruction, and school improvement; and upload files to your student information system.

If you've already used the portal, just sign in to access scores.

If you haven't used it yet, you'll need two things:

  1. A College Board professional account. If you don’t have one, create an account now.
  2. Permission from your institution’s access manager. Every school, district, and state has an access manager.

After you create a College Board account, sign in to the score reporting portal. If you haven’t been granted access yet, follow the links and we’ll tell you who to contact.

If you are an access manager, learn about Granting Access and Assigning Roles.

You'll be notified when your students’ scores are available. Go to the score release schedule.

The score reporting portal includes two sections: Reports and Downloads. You can access one or both of these, depending on the role you are assigned.

In the Reports section of the portal, users can:

  • View scores
  • Print individual student reports
  • Instantly run and export a range of reports at the school, district, and state levels
  • Sort and export data

To view scores for individual students, as well as aggregate data, you’ll need the Detailed Reports role. If you don’t need to see student-level scores, you can use the Summary Reports role.

Users with the File Downloads role can access the Downloads page, which has preformatted files you can import into student information systems.

Running Reports

Get the answers you need to find your way around the Reports page and work with educator score reports.

On the Reports page, users can:

  • View scores
  • Print individual student reports, labels, and admission tickets.
  • Instantly run and export a range of score reports at the school, district, and state levels
  • Quickly access reports you recently ran
  • Sort and export data

You'll need the Summary Reports or Detailed Reports role to access the Reports page.

If you don't see the Reports page when you sign in to the score reporting portal, ask your access manager to assign you one of these roles. Access managers are colleagues at your institution who have the Access Management/DAT role.

With the Detailed Reports role, you can view scores for individual students. If you don’t need to see student-level scores, ask for the Summary Reports role.

Use the Run Reports feature on the upper left corner of the Reports page, or review the reports listed on this page, and click on the one you want to run.

All state and district users can drill down within most reports to see data at the district and school levels. Users with the Detailed Reports role can drill down to data for individual students.

You can also use the search tool on the Reports page. Search for a district, school, or student by full name or any part of a name and run reports for them.

Understanding Educator Reports

Learn what each report can help you do and where you can read more about score data.

The reports listed below are good choices if your goal is student counseling, curriculum and instruction review, or tracking progress.

Student Counseling

Use the following reports to design strategies for helping individual students improve their skills:

  • Scores and Benchmarks
  • Roster report
  • Student report

Curriculum and Instruction Review

These reports help you ensure that classroom work aligns to college and career readiness standards:

  • Scores and Benchmarks
  • Instructional Planning

Tracking Progress

Use these reports to develop systems for monitoring the progress of student groups, schools, and districts:

  • Summary
  • Scores and Benchmarks

For more detail, see Professional Development Module 6: Using Scores and Reporting to Inform Instruction (.pdf/3.18 MB).

The detailed roster report, available at the school level, lists students along with their scores and other information. Use it to:

  • Click on a student’s name to see their individual report.
  • Print student reports and labels, individually or in bulk.
  • Give access codes and registration numbers to students who have trouble signing in to their score reports.
  • View SAT registration information, photos, and Admission Tickets. Find out how to report incorrect student information or photos.
  • Find your school's AP Potential™ access code and a link to the tool.

If you work for a district or state, you can search for a specific school to view its detailed roster.

The roster summary provides aggregate performance data at all institution levels.

This report provides aggregate and student-level performance data for each school, including every score for the assessment you select.

Use it to see how well students performed by comparing their scores to mean scores, benchmark data, and other statistics at the school, district, state, and total group levels; establish baselines for school improvement goals; and identify which students did not meet benchmarks.

This report makes it easy to view students by performance group in specific subscores as well as section and test scores. Use it to:

  • See section scores in relation to College and Career Readiness Benchmarks in Math and in Evidence-Based Reading and Writing.
  • See which skills are your students’ strongest and which need the most improvement.
  • Inform classroom work and curriculum improvements.

Tips:

  • Available for the new SAT, new PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9.
  • For section scores, colors indicate which students met benchmarks, which are approaching benchmarks, and which need to strengthen skills.
  • For test scores and subscores, colors indicate which students are on track for college readiness, which are close to being on track, and which need to strengthen skills. Find out how the score ranges for each color are calculated.

Benchmarks can help educators identify students who:

  • Need more support while there is still time for improvement
  • Can take on more challenging courses and assignments

Benchmarks should not be used to:

  • Assign students to academic tracks.
  • Keep students from participating in challenging courses.
  • Discourage students from pursuing college.

Statistics reported for the total group represent both U.S. and international test takers. These statistics include mean scores and benchmark performance data.

N/A displays in place of:

  • Benchmark data and aggregate mean scores for groups of 10 students or fewer. These groups are too small to support valid statistics.
  • State aggregates for any school that's not a U.S. state public school.
  • District aggregates for any school that’s not part of a public school district or another administrative hierarchy such as an archdiocese.

Printing Student Reports, Labels, and Admission Tickets

Learn how to find and print student reports, Admission Tickets, and labels.

One score report per student will be mailed for PSAT-related assessments. Schools can also order additional paper score reports for $100 per administration. A set of printed labels is also $100.

When you drill down into your students' data within the portal you'll see a report that mirrors their online score reports. Seeing exactly what your students see makes it easier for you to walk students through their score reports and help them take action on their test results.

In addition to their scores, the online student score reports include:

  • Nationally representative sample percentile and user percentile
  • Color coding showing how the student’s performance compares to college readiness benchmarks
  • Score projections for the exams typically taken by students in the next grade (provided if the latest test taken is a PSAT-related assessment)
  • Recommendations for AP courses to explore (AP potential)
  • Scores for prior assessments
  • Demographic information
  • College score-send information (SAT only)
  • The student’s essay (SAT with Essay only)

The following data, in addition to scores, is available for Subject Test and old SAT student reports:

  1. Run a detailed roster report for a school. See Full Registration Roster.
  2. Choose the Score Reports/Labels Printing tab or the Registration Report/Admission Tickets tab.
  3. Check the box next to the name of each student you want to include.
  4. Click Score Reports from Selected, Labels from Selected, or Admission Tickets from Selected.

For score labels, use Avery 5163/5963 labels or their equivalent (10 labels per page, 2" x 4"). To print correctly aligned labels, make sure the Page Sizing & Handling option is set to Actual Size when printing.

Schools participating in SAT School Day and using the test ordering website can order score labels for $100 per administration. An extra set of paper score reports is also $100.

Downloading Files

With access to the Downloads page, you can download score data files for import into your student information system.

The Downloads page provides comma-delimited (CSV) and fixed-width (TXT) files for import into your student information system without additional encryption software. You can download files manually or use an automated download web service.

Tips:

  • SAT Subject Test data is included in SAT data files; some students may have taken only a Subject Test.
  • Click the link below the Download link to view an audit trail showing who has already downloaded each file and the date of the download.
  • Use the sample data files provided to test the new data layouts on your automated system.

Users with the File Downloads role can access the Downloads page.

If you don't see the Downloads page when you sign in to the score reporting portal, ask your access manager to assign you this role. Access managers are colleagues at your institution who have the Access Management/DAT role.

If you have the File Downloads role, you'll receive an email each time a new scores data file is ready.

We use a standardized naming convention to distinguish between data files, including those posted on the same day. File names follow these patterns:

  • Fixed width (TXT): [AI CODE]_[ASMT_TYPE]_ [YYYYMMDD]_[HHMMSS].txt
  • Comma-delimited (CSV): [AI CODE]_[ASMT_TYPE]_ [YYYYMMDD]_[HHMMSS].csv
Naming Convention Key
File Name Element Description
AI CODE The AI code for a school file or the organization ID for a district or state file.
ASMT TYPE The assessment name:
  • SAT, for SAT and SAT Subject Tests
  • PSATNM, for PSAT/NMSQT
  • PSAT10, for PSAT 10
  • PSAT89, for PSAT 8/9
YYYYMMDD The date the file was generated.
HHMMSS The time the file was generated.

To open a comma-delimited (CSV) file properly, use Excel’s Data Import from Text feature to open the import wizard and set all columns as text.

If you click the file and allow Excel to open it automatically, the columns might be formatted improperly.

To download files automatically, call our RESTful web service, PAScoresDwnld. There are two ways to trigger your IT system to call the web service to download a file:

  1. Use the notification email as the trigger. Emails containing the file name are sent automatically whenever a new file is posted. You can also generate the emails manually from the portal for development and testing.
  2. If you prefer, you can look for new files by using the web service to get a file directory listing periodically.

In both cases, the web service uses your credentials (the same credentials you use to sign in to the reporting portal) and the data file name to return the pre-signed URL. The pre-signed URL enables the transfer of the file to your IT system.

We recommend requesting the pre-signed URL by passing both login credentials and file name through the web service in one step. However, if you prefer, you can obtain the pre-signed URL by first using your username and password to request an access token and then using the access token and file name to request the pre-signed URL. The API references—and code samples—needed for both approaches are available below.

Security measures:

  • The pre-signed URL is active for only 15 seconds.
  • The transporting encryption is accomplished by SSL/TLS/HTTPS.
  • There is no client-side encryption enforced once the file is downloaded, so take any and all necessary steps to secure this file appropriately and meet your institution's security standards.

Note: The notification email has embedded html span tags. These tags can be used to identify and extract the file name from the email notification. Span tags use this format: <span id='fileName'> filename.txt </span>.

You can use the PAScoresDwnld web service to retrieve a list of files posted for your organization. File directory listings are helpful if you don’t want to use the notification email to retrieve file names.

You can request a full or partial file directory listing:

  • Full file directory listing: A list of all files posted for your organization regardless of posting date. You can compare this list to a list of files already downloaded to your system, then retrieve each file you need individually.
  • Partial file directory listing of files posted since "fromDate": A list of all files posted since a date and time that you provide. You can obtain a list of files posted since the last successful download, then retrieve each new file individually.

You can request the file directory listing by passing both login credentials and the required parameters described in the API reference below through the web service in one step. However, if you prefer, you can do it do it by first using your username and password to request an access token and then using the access token to request the file directory listing. Code samples for both approaches are available below.

Note: These file directory listing methods works only if the College Board professional account used for authentication is associated with only one organization in the Managing Access tool. If you need access to multiple organizations, create separate accounts and use the Managing Access tool to assign a File Downloads role for only one organization in each account.

Below are the API references for implementing the PAScoresDwnld API. We also provide code samples to get you started.

JavaScript

Attached is a .zip file containing sample JavaScript code to download score reporting files and retrieve a list of data for files posted for your organization: pascoredwnld-javascript-sample.zip.

To run the sample JavaScript client (download.js):

  1. Download and install node.js version 4.4.2 (or later)
  2. Test node.js installation -- run 'node --version', it should display 'v4.4.2'
  3. Open download.js, check configurations and make proper modifications in initConfig:
var initConfig = {
scoredwnldHost: 'scoresdownload.collegeboard.org',
scoredwnldPort: '443',
localFilePath: 'C:/TEMP/',
username:'exampleuser',
password:'examplepass'
};
  1. Run the script: 'node download.js', this would provide how to use the script file.
  2. Run the script: 'node download.js list', to get the list of files.
  3. Run the script: 'node download.js download <filename>' to download the file.

Java

Attached is a .zip file containing the sample Java project to download score reporting files and retrieve a list of data for files posted for your organization: pascoredwnld-java-sample.zip.To build the project, gradle is needed. Gradle can be obtained from gradle.org

To build and run the sample:

  1. Unzip the files.
  2. The config.properties file can be updated with the login credentials, and file download path.
  3. Build the project by 'gradle clean install'
  4. Go to ./build/libs folder
  5. Run the code below to get information on how to use the Example:
'java -classpath pascoredwnld-client.jar;"lib/*" org.collegeboard.scoredwnld.client.Example
  1. To obtain the list of downloadable files, run the following:
'java -classpath pascoredwnld-client.jar;"lib/*" org.collegeboard.scoredwnld.client.Example list
  1. To download a specific file, run the following with the filename at the end replacing <filename>
'java -classpath ../..;pascoredwnld-client.jar;"lib/*" org.collegeboard.scoredwnld.client.Example download <filename>

Note: “../..” in the classpath, would allow the config.properties file to be read. The file can be located anywhere, but referring to it appropriately in the classpath would allow the code to read the contents from it and override the default that is hardcoded.

cURL

Attached is a .zip file containing the sample cURL scripts to call the different service endpoints using cURL: pascoredwnld-curl-sample.zip.

To run the sample cURL scripts:

  1. The .zip files contain login.sh, list.sh and fileurl.sh files.
  2. Extract the zip file content.
  3. In each of these files, change the values for the username and password.
  4. Run the login.sh script, this should provide the login token as response.
  5. Run the list.sh script, this should provide the list of files as response.
  6. In the fileurl.sh, change the filename to a filename that is available in the previous response, and run the fileurl.sh. This should provide the fileUrl as response. The fileUrl can be used to download the file.

Granting Access and Assigning Roles

If you have the Access Management/DAT role, you are an access manager and can use the Managing Access tool to grant colleagues permission to view scores.

Before you can sign in to the Managing Access tool, you’ll need to enter an access code. If you don’t have an access code, check with your test coordinator or principal. If they don't have one, contact Customer Service.

If you have an access code, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your College Board account or create a new one by going to the professional dashboard.
  2. Click General under the heading Add Additional Tools and Services.
  3. Click Get Access next to Managing Access to support K–12 Assessment Reporting.

  1. On the next screen, enter your institution and access code. The access code is valid only for the institution specified when you received it.
  2. After you enter the access code, you’ll see the Managing Access tool listed under the My Tools and Services heading.

The next time you need to use the Managing Access tool, just sign in to it with your College Board account username and password. You should use the tool to assign others to the Access Management/DAT role so that you have backup. They won’t need an access code.

  • Renew and revoke access for colleagues who already have a user role.
  • Give access to colleagues who have College Board accounts that list your institution as their employer.
  • Invite colleagues who don't have a College Board account that lists your institution as their employer.
  • Resend and cancel invitations.

Assign one or more of the following roles to your colleagues so they can access the reporting portal.

Access Management/DAT: People with this role are access managers. They use the Managing Access tool to assign reporting roles to colleagues—and themselves—so they can get scores in the online reporting portal. Access managers can also assign others to the Access Management/DAT role, allowing for coverage if the primary access manager is unavailable or leaves the institution.

For access to the reporting portal, assign other roles as well.

File Downloads: People with this role can download data files from the Downloads page. They're usually in charge of uploading results into your institution's student information system. They may be IT vendors, institution technology staff, or others. This role does not grant access to the Reports page.

Summary Reports: Provides access to aggregate score reporting in the online reporting portal, limited to summary data only, with no access to individual student information. This role should be given to colleagues who don’t need student-level information. It does not grant access to the Downloads page.

Detailed Reports: Provides complete access to the online reports in the portal, including aggregate data and data for individual students as well as personally identifiable information. This role should be given only to teachers, counselors, and other staff authorized to see student-level results. It does not grant access to the Downloads page.

Tips:

  • Each role is independent and some colleagues need more than one role. For complete access to the reporting portal, you’ll need to assign users to the File Downloads role and the Detailed Reports role.
  • For access to the reporting portal, you need to assign yourself a role other than Access Management/DAT.
  • You can set up and maintain unlimited users, but be sure to manage accounts as people join and leave your organization. We recommend setting an appropriate expiration date such as the end of a school year.
  • If a user is assigned both the Detailed Reports and Summary Reports roles, Detailed Reports will be the default.
  • In the Managing Access tool, "(K–12)" follows all role names.

Troubleshooting

Find out what to do if something's not working as expected.

If you tried to sign in to the reporting portal using your College Board professional account and it didn't work, it might be because your institution's access manager hasn't granted you access yet. Try to sign in to the portal again and follow the links to find out who to contact.

If you are an access manager, keep in mind that the role giving you access to the Managing Access tool—Access Management/DAT—won't give you access to the reporting portal. You'll need to grant yourself one or more other roles. Learn more about user roles.

Go to the Downloads page to download comma-delimited (CSV) and fixed-width (TXT) files for import into your student information system. You can download them manually or use an automated download web service.

If you don't see the Downloads page when you sign in to the score reporting portal, ask your access manager to assign you the File Downloads role.

Access managers are colleagues at your institution who have the Access Management/DAT role.

Students who have trouble signing in to their score reports may need to use their access code (for PSAT-related assessments) or their registration number (for the SAT and SAT Subject Tests). Look these up in the school-level detailed roster report and share them with students.

Students sign in to their score reports at https://studentscores.collegeboard.org/home.

The detailed roster report, available in school-level reports, provides SAT registration information, photos, and Admission Tickets.

If scores for a test administration have been released, but some or all of your student's scores are unavailable, it could be for one of these reasons:

  • Answer sheets were turned in late or are missing.
  • A testing irregularity is under investigation. Check with your institution's testing coordinator.

The Question Analysis report most closely resembles the old Summary of Answers and Skills report. Used with the Instructional Analysis report, it's a powerful tool for informing curriculum and instruction.

AP Potential information for individual students can be found in their score reports. Your school’s access code for the AP Potential tool is shared in the detailed roster report.

However, AP scores and the AP Potential tool are not part of the score reporting portal.

The full Question Analysis report—including data describing how your students answered each question and the questions themselves—is available for disclosed forms only.

If you're reviewing a report for a disclosed form and data is missing for a particular question, it's probably for one of these reasons:

  • The question was determined invalid and was not scored.
  • The student asked that we rescore their test. Their name will appear, but you won’t see how they answered.

Data files include the answers your students selected for each question.

Question data is reported as "X" if:

  • The question was determined invalid and was not scored.
  • The student provided two or more answers.

Student-produced responses to math questions are reported as "X" when the student bubbles multiple circles for a single digit in multi-grid responses.

The reports in the online reporting portal are updated with new score data weekly, but data files are delivered less frequently. When data is missing from a posted data file, you should receive a new data file that includes those scores within a month of seeing them in the online reports.

One score report per student will be mailed for PSAT-related assessments.

You can either print additional student reports or order additional reports.

CD delivery of data files has been discontinued for all tests in the SAT Suite of Assessments and SAT Subject Tests.

As part of our efforts to keep the SAT honest and fair, we ask students to provide a photo during registration. If student information is incorrect or doesn’t match the photo, email us at testsecurity@info.collegeboard.org or call the Office of Testing Integrity at 609-406-5430.
