Viewing and Uploading Data Files

SAT score data files are available to educators in the online score reporting portal’s Download Center. The TXT file format is fully compatible with Naviance. If you don’t see the Download Center tab when you sign in, request a file downloads role from your institution’s access manager.

Uploading Files to Naviance

  1. Download the TXT file directly from the Download Center to your desktop or network drive.
  2. Do not open the file in Excel prior to uploading it to Naviance; doing so will make the file incompatible with Naviance.
  3. Upload the file to Naviance.

Viewing Files

  1. Download the CSV file from the Download Center to your desktop or network drive.

Technical Implementation

If your institution has been set up as an electronic scores recipient, or previously as a CD recipient, your electronic scores contact would have received an access code for the Managing Access tool. You should use this access code to set up a staff member as the access manager for your institution.

The access manager is responsible for ensuring that the proper staff has access to SAT data and reports. You may have multiple access managers, but we suggest you limit the role to only a few people.

The access manager can allow other staff members to get electronic scores data files via our new Download Center, or to get free online reports via our Report Center. Users with Download Center access can either manually download files, or automate the download via our web service API.

The integrated reporting portal contains data for the entire SAT Suite of Assessments, and therefore access roles assigned for SAT purposes will be the same as those for PSAT-related assessments.

Updates to Data Layout Resources

Here’s what you should know about the 2017-18 downloads:

  • No new fields have been added to the layout, and no fields have been repositioned.
  • The question item response fields now have a code value to account for students that grid in an answer choice.
  • Citizenship Status is no longer reported. This field will be reported blank.
