PSAT at Whitman - October 12th

The Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test (PSAT) provides an important measure of each student’s readiness for advanced coursework, college and careers, and preparation for future college readiness examinations.  The PSAT will be administered on Wednesday, October 12, 2022.  

All Grade 10 students will participate free of charge. Grade 11 students must pay the $19 fee for the assessment and are encouraged to participate to obtain additional SAT practice and participate in the National Merit Scholarship Program.

Prior to the PSAT administration, students will also have the opportunity to participate, with parent/guardian consent, in the optional Student Data Questionnaire. The College Board gives students and families complete discretion regarding any voluntary information they provide as part of the Student Data Questionnaire. Information gathered is used for group reporting, for analysis to ensure that the exams are fair for all groups, to connect the student with potential colleges or scholarship opportunities, and for research.

 To provide consent for students to participate in the optional Student Data Questionnaire, parents/guardians must sign a consent form, which is part of the PSAT registration process in the Google form below.  Whether or not a parent/guardian consents for a student to participate in the optional Student Data Questionnaire, the student will still participate in the PSAT administration on Wednesday, October 12.
