Pre-Tests and Scholarship Exams
The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is an assessment administered to 10th and 11th grade students that helps prepare them for the SAT, college, and careers. Additionally, the PSAT can provide opportunities for scholarships for students entering college. Historically, students who take the PSAT score higher on the SAT than those who don’t take the test.
ACT Aspire maps learner progress from grades three through high school on a vertical scale, anchored to the scoring system of the ACT.
