The SAT Suite of Assessments' scores and score reports are powerful tools for promoting college readiness and college planning.

Score Reports

Scores are reported through the integrated score reporting portal. A single sign-in grants access to score data from every assessment in the SAT Suite of Assessments.

The College and Career Readiness Benchmarks referenced on score reports help students and educators assess student progress from year to year.

Scores That Provide Insight

Scores include subscores and cross-test scores. With these types of scores, the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9 provide insight into specific strengths and weaknesses, helping students and educators see where students can improve and supporting teachers as they adjust instruction.

Skill development is further supported by the common score scale, which makes it easier to monitor student progress. Learn about the score scale.

No Penalty for Guessing

When students take an assessment in the SAT Suite, they simply earn points for the questions they answer correctly. This way, every score represents a best effort because students can give their best answer to every question—there's no advantage to leaving any blank.

Using Score Choice

Score Choice lets students choose which day's SAT scores to send to colleges. Students can send a single day's scores, or they can send scores of every SAT they've taken. The only thing students can't do is send partial scores from different days. For instance, students can't send their Math score from one test day and their Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score from another.

Reminder: Every college has its own score-use practice—some require students to send every score. Many colleges consider the best one.
