As part of the SAT Suite of Assessments, the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 make it easier for students to navigate a path through high school, college, and career.
Schools and districts can order the tests in the SAT Suite through our test ordering site. If you need help with your school's access code, contact us.

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.

The skills tested on the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 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.
The Early Participation Program (EPP) is an initiative designed to increase access to college by engaging younger students in the college-going process.
