Sophomore PSAT 10 Exam
With the state's decision to change the junior year assessment to the SAT, OPRFHS has adopted the PSAT 8/9 (for freshmen) and PSAT 10 (for sophomores) to create an aligned series of tests that will help prepare our students for their college admissions test. PSAT tests are structured in the same way and contain questions in the same content and skill areas as the SAT; the questions get more complex and address deeper knowledge and skills from PSAT 8/9 to PSAT 10 to the SAT. This series of tests will give parents, students, and high school staff useful information about each student’s progress toward college and career readiness. The District will pay the cost of the tests in freshman and sophomore year; the state pays for testing in the junior year.
The PSAT 10 date for 2016-17 is April 10, 2018. No prior registration for the test is required.
No classes will meet on April 10, 2018, except for our TEAM program, which will meet as usual. The day will be used for school-wide testing of freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Seniors will not attend.
Testing will begin at 8:00 a.m. Students will be dismissed early from school upon the conclusion of the test. Most students will complete testing by 1:00 p.m.
- Please contact Ms. Amy Hill at 434-3373 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the PSAT 10.
- Testing accommodations for IEP/504 students: College Board requires that for the PSAT 10, the school submit an application requesting test accommodations for students with IEP or 504 provisions related to standardized testing. If you have questions about your child's IEP or 504 testing accommodations, please contact Ms. Margaret Collins at 434-3121 or email@example.com.
- Students whose accommodations allow them to listen to an audio version of the test will test over two days due to the length of the extended time for this accommodation. Testing for these students will be completed on April 12, and students will be excused from their classes while they are completing the test.
