New Test Policies
Starting in 2018-19:
- Schools testing on October 13, the PSAT/NMSQT Saturday date, must return test books.
- Schools testing in February or March for the PSAT 10 must also return test books.
- If you're required to return test books, your staff and students can't review question-level details, including test questions and answer explanations, after test day.
- If your staff and students need these details, choose the Wednesday PSAT/NMSQT dates, or PSAT 10 dates in April.
New Roles for Educators
Starting in 2018-19, school staff who administer PSAT-related assessments will have new titles:
- Test supervisors will become "coordinators."
- Supporting staff will become "proctors."
- Staff now known as proctors will become "monitors."
These changes will be reflected in manuals and other testing materials beginning in fall 2018.
Testing Supports for English Language Learners
To make the PSAT 10 even more accessible to students, the College Board has worked with educators to provide testing supports for English language learners (ELL).
ELL students taking the PSAT 10 have access to testing instructions in the following languages: Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Gujarati, Haitian Creole, Hindi, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Urdu and Vietnamese. We've also provided a list of approved word-for-word glossaries that students may use on test day.
Coordinators planning for test day should print the translations and provide a copy for each ELL student. Schools may also provide copies of the approved glossaries.

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