Schools and districts can order components of the SAT Suite through our test ordering site. Contact your regional office for an access code if you've misplaced it.

New Roles for Educators
Before test day, contract districts can use bulk registration to submit information electronically and securely. Users will be able to print pre-identification labels for student answer sheets, saving time on test day. Learn more about bulk registration.
District- and State-Level Data
Use the integrated online reporting portal to analyze district- and state-level test results and use your findings to increase access, identify skill gaps, and improve instruction.
All data points and analysis reports available to schools are also available at the district and state levels. Raw data files can also be downloaded for import into district and state systems.
Districts can also access AP Potential™, which helps districts grow their AP programs by identifying students likely to succeed in AP courses and exams. Scores from the PSAT 8/9 are used to identify ninth-graders with potential to succeed in AP World History and AP European History, the two AP courses most often offered to 10th-graders.

The skills tested on the PSAT 8/9 complement state education standards. Ask your regional representative for state alignment reports. They map scores, including subscores, to standards. Use them to identify the skills your students should focus on as they prepare for state assessments and college.
Join more than 350 districts and states in the Early Participation Program (EPP). This initiative is designed to increase access to college by engaging younger students in the college-going process.
