K–12 Educators

Having benchmark data while a student is in 8th or 9th grade helps you intervene in time to get your students on track for college success.

Ordering Will Open in June

Starting in early June, schools will be able to order tests on our test ordering site. We’ll send an email to alert you when ordering opens.

Test Policy Reminders

On test day, the minimum distance between students' desks will be 3 feet, but we encourage you to adhere to local health guidelines for social distancing whenever possible.

Borrowing Tests

Schools must officially order PSAT 8/9 test materials to get score reports after testing. Ordering reflects that your school has been approved for testing, that we have your correct mailing and contact information, and that your school has the correct materials to fairly administer tests.

Borrowing and lending is allowed for some test administrations, but schools using only borrowed materials won't get score reports.

Tips for Getting Scores on Time

Here are a few easy steps you can take on or before test day:

  • When collecting answer sheets, check that certain fields have been completed correctly. These fields include, but are not limited to, name (field 1), school code (field 4), and form code (field A, located on the back of answer sheet). Errors in these fields can cause scoring delays. Go to the "Collecting Answer Sheets" section of your coordinator manual for details.
  • It's critical to return answer sheets and unused materials to College Board no later than the next school day after test day to prevent delays to scores.

Testing Supports for English Learners

To make the PSAT 8/9 even more accessible to students, the College Board has worked with educators to provide testing supports for English learners (EL).

Look Up Your School Code

To offer the PSAT 8/9, your school needs an active six-digit College Board school code. Schools that offer the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP have one. If you need a code, call 609-771-7091.
