Best Practices for Sharing Results

Student Information Sessions

Without some context for understanding their reports, students 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.

Since students will have access to their online score reports very soon after you do, consider hosting your information session before scores are released.

Discuss the score report, its meaning, and its interpretation before you hand out individual test books. To help students understand the information without the distraction of their own scores, we’ll provide a demo of the online experience.

When you hand out test books, make sure to give students the ones they used.

Online score reports will no longer be called My College QuickStart, but students will have access to a new, robust online reporting portal that will expand to include scores from all the tests in the SAT Suite of Assessments.

Students can interact with their score report, filtering test questions by difficulty and skill and viewing complete answer explanations.

Parent Communications

Since the College Board does not send score reports to parents, some schools copy paper score reports and mail them to parents, along with a letter of explanation. If they have questions about their child’s test results, parents can bring their copy when they meet with an educator. The College Board will continue to provide materials that support communication with parents.

Educator Reports

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.
