Results from the PSAT 8/9 are powerful tools for promoting college readiness and college planning, especially when explained to students and parents and shared with colleagues.
When and Where to Get Scores
Scores will be available depending on when schools return answer sheets.
Updates to Paper Score Reports
Starting fall 2021, schools administering PSAT-related assessments will no longer receive shipments of paper score reports.
Educators can still view and print student score reports from the Roster Report in the K–12 Score Reporting portal.
Students can continue to take advantage of the robust and personalized online tools for viewing and understanding their scores by signing into their College Board account.
College Board will provide updated resources to help students and educators with this transition.
Best Practices for Sharing Results
Student Information Sessions
Without some context for understanding their reports, students who have College Board accounts may rush to look at their scores and stop there. We recommend setting up an information session for students that introduces the online score report and the free college and career planning tools they’ll find there.
Discuss the score report, its meaning, and its interpretation. To help students understand the information without the distraction of their own scores, we'll provide a sample score report.
Students with College Board accounts will have access to a robust online reporting portal that includes scores from all tests in the SAT Suite of Assessments.
Students can interact with their score report, filter test questions by difficulty and skill, and view complete answer explanations.
Parents can review scores with their children online. Updated resources for parents will be posted this fall to help parents access and understand their children's scores as well as how students can connect their scores to additional opportunities.
Helping your colleagues view, understand, and analyze test results is getting easier. There's no limit to the number of users at your school, district, or state who can access the integrated online reporting portal.
You and your colleagues can further help students by:
- Reviewing detailed reports in the integrated reporting portal to identify students' strengths in each content area.
- Connecting with students on their scores to help them to review and gain insight on their performance.
- Showing students how they can use results to get free, personalized SAT practice on Khan Academy®.
- Using AP Potential™ to identify students who are likely to succeed in AP.
