The skills tested on the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 complement state education standards. Ask your regional representative for state alignment reports. They map scores, including subscores, to standards. Use them to identify the skills your students should focus on as they prepare for state assessments and college.
Join more than 350 districts and states in the Early Participation Program (EPP). This initiative is designed to increase access to college by engaging younger students in the college-going process.
