2What is the PSAT/NMSQT?Stands for Preliminary SAT / National Merit Scholarship Qualifying TestPractice test for the SATYou’ll get an idea of how standardized tests workSee how you perform in a high-pressure testing situationYou get SCORES to give you a starting pointJunior year scores are used as qualifying test for National Merit Scholarship
3How is the PSAT Scored? 3 sections (Math, Critical Reading, Writing) 20 – 80 for each section60 – 240 combinedAverage PSAT score 141 (juniors)GA National Merit Qualifying Score (class of 2013): 214
4PSAT → SATYou can use your PSAT score to help you predict how you might score on the SAT if you took it right now without any preparation. Simply add a zero to each of your PSAT scores.EXAMPLE:PSAT SATCritical Reading 52 —> 520Math —> 510Writing —> 530Total —> 1560
5PSAT → SAT Major differences between PSAT and SAT Not an exact science.Major differences between PSAT and SATSAT is much longer – takes almost 4 hoursSAT has harder math than the PSATSAT has a mandatory essay included in the Writing Skills section
6Understanding Your PSAT/NMSQT Results 4 Major Parts of Your PSAT/NMSQT ResultsUnderstanding Your PSAT/NMSQT ResultsYour ScoresYour SkillsYour AnswersNext Steps3 Test SectionsCritical ReadingNote to Presenter: Use this PowerPoint presentation to help your students understand their PSAT/NMSQT results and benefit from the feedback provided on their score reports. The notes provided throughout the presentation can be read aloud to students or used simply as reference information.There are 4 major parts to the PSAT/NMSQT Score Report:-Your Scores-Your Skills-Your Answers-Next StepsThe score report shows how you performed on each of the three sections of the PSAT/NMSQT:-Critical Reading-Mathematics-Writing SkillsMathematicsWriting Skills6
7Your Scores Score Range Percentile If you are a junior, your scores are compared to those of other juniors.If you are a sophomore or younger student, your scores are compared to those of sophomores.Your ScoresPSAT/NMSQT scores are reported on a scale from 20 to 80. The sample here shows a score of 50 for the Critical Reading section.Below the score is a score range. Ranges show how much your scores might vary if you took the PSAT/NMSQT again before gaining new knowledge or skills. In this case, the Critical Reading score would be within 4 points above or below 50. The performance of students with scores between 46 and 54 would be very similar.Percentiles: How did I do compared to others?Percentiles help you compare your performance on the PSAT/NMSQT to the performance of all other juniors or sophomores who tested. For example, if you scored in the 55th percentile, you scored higher than 55 percent of students who took the test. It also means that 45 percent of students had a score equal to or higher than yours.Another way to understand percentiles is to visualize 100 students lined up from the lowest (or first) percentile to the highest (or 99th) percentile. If you are in the 55th percentile, you would be the 55th student in line, scoring higher than 54 students and lower than 45.Note: Juniors are compared to all juniors who took the test; sophomores and younger students are compared to all sophomores who took the test.7
8National Merit Scholarship Corporation Information The Selection Index is the sum of your critical reading, mathematics and writing skills scores.If it has an asterisk, you do not meet all of the eligibility requirements for the competition.Below your scores, you’ll find information about eligibility for scholarships available through the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Each student who takes the PSAT/NMSQT has a Selection Index. The Selection Index is the sum of the Critical Reading, Math, and Writing Skills scores (CR+M+W).To enter National Merit Scholarship Corporations competitions, you must:1. be a full-time high school student;2. graduate the following year and enroll in college full-time;3. complete grades 9-12 in four years; and4. be a U.S. citizen.If your Selection Index has an asterisk (*) next to it, this means you do not meet all the eligibility requirements for entrance into the competition. Typically, it is because you are not graduating next year.More than 1.5 million juniors enter this competition each year. About 50,000 qualify for recognition, and about 9,700 of these students receive an award. Be sure to look at your own Selection Index and eligibility when you receive your score report.The Percentile compares your performance to that of other college-bound juniors.The Entry Requirements section displays information you provided on your answer sheet.8
9Your SkillsSee how you did on each skill. The same skills are tested on the SAT.Your Skills SectionThe “Your Skills” section is a valuable part of your PSAT/NMSQT results, showing you a complete picture of how you performed on the different skills tested by the PSAT/NMSQT. Take a closer look to see where you did well and where you might want to improve.The same skills are tested on the SAT. To get more practice before you take that test, try the hundreds of practice questions available online at9
10Your AnswersYou will get your test book back with your PSAT/NMSQT results, so that you can review the questions.Review Your Answers SectionThe middle section of the report is the “Review Your Answers” section. When you receive your results, you will also get your test book, the one you used when you took the test. Be sure to ask for your test book if you don’t have it.Use your Test Book:Using your actual test book will help you make the most of the “Review Your Answers” section, since you’ll be able to go back to questions you got wrong and, with the help of the explanations available on figure out why. You can also look at the notes you made in your test book to see how you got to your answer.Four Columns: The Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Writing Skills sections of your score report all contain the following information.The first column displays the number of each question as it appeared in the test booklet.The second column displays the correct answer to each question.In the third column you will see the answers that you chose:-a checkmark means CORRECT-O means OMITTED-an alphanumeric letter shows the incorrect answer you choseIn the fourth column we see the letters E, M, or H, which identify the level of difficulty of each question.-E means EASY questions-M means MEDIUM difficulty-H means HARD (the most difficult questions on the test)Remember: This test is for high school juniors who are preparing for college, so it’s possible that an E or easy question might seem difficult to younger students.10
11Your Answers: Student-Produced Responses Some of the math problems required you to grid in answers instead of selecting an option. For these questions, you will see the correct answer(s) written out.Review Your Answers: Mathematics Student-Produced ResponsesNot all the math questions on the PSAT/NMSQT are multiple-choice. The Math section contains Multiple-Choice and Student Produced Response Questions, or “grid-ins”. Here, you solved problems and then recorded answers on a grid.Only answers gridded in the ovals are scored. You receive no credit for answers, even correct ones, written in boxes and not gridded or gridded incorrectly.11

16What does SAT stand for? SAT Point of the slide: leads up to the point that the SAT doesn’t measure intelligenceAsk the crowd this question. People will start throwing out different answers. Scholastic Aptitude test, achievement test, etc. They typically have trouble with the “A”.Make big to do about telling them what it means….It actually stands for NOTHING.Used to be aptitude at some point in the past but they were challenged on that and are not allowed to call it an aptitude test because it doesn’t measure our intelligence.Clever folks at ETS/CB just never figured out a replacement “A”.The SAT is actually the SAT Reasoning Test. Shouldn’t it be renamed the SRT?
17What do SAT Scores Really Measure? How well you take the SATPoint of this slide: set up for the SAT scores don’t = intelligence aha momentAsk this question out loud to the crowd. Let them answer. You will get people who give you the correct answer. When you do, quickly move to the next slide.
18SAT Don’t take your scores personally. SAT scores are NOT a measure of yourintelligence.Anybody, with the proper coaching, can learn howto increase their scores.Point of this slide: show that since the test doesn’t measure intelligence, then it is definitely coachable.If you get a 2300 on the test – woooo hooo! You are an EXCELLENT SAT taker. You may also be extremely smart, but the one thing we know for sure from the 2300 is that you take this test well. It could be something you were born with. Brown hair, blue eyes, tall and an SAT test-taking gene.If you scored a 1500 it doesn’t mean you are dumb. It means you ain’t so good at taking the SAT. You are probably really smart and do well in school.It’s the number one thing we hear from our students and parents. “I don’t understand, I’m a 4.0 honors student. How is this even possible?”Unfortunately, this student was born with the I ain’t so good at the SAT gene.It’s hard to coach increasing intelligence. That’s not something that is easily increased in 6-12 weeks. SAT scores are.
19SAT 3 + 3 + 3 = 10 ??? Experimental Section There are 10 sections on the test:3 math3 writing3 reading= 10???Point of this slide: explain the experimental section. This one always gets the crowd riled up.You wasted (and will waste 25 minutes) of your time when you take the test on a section that doesn’t count for anything! ETS is testing out questions and answer choices for future tests! They are testing them on you.Worst of all? You pay them to do it! You paid money to take the test.You don’t know which section the experimental section will be. Students should just treat every section as the real thing and don’t waste time guessing which one doesn’t count.Experimental Section
20SAT ScoringEach section (Math, Reading and Writing) is scored on a scale ofThe mean is around 500 for each section.The Writing score is a combination of Grammar (20-80) and Essay (2-12).The Grammar portion of the Writing section makes up about 70% of your Writing Score.Point of this slide: basic overview of how the test is scored with a TPR grammar “wow” pointDon’t assume people know this coming in.Emphasize the last bullet point about grammar. Ask who is nervous about the essay? Does anybody worry about grammar? That’s because for some reason the essay gets all of the attention. In fact, it’s the grammar that really matters in the writing section.Not only is it grammar, it is ancient grammar! For example… “Alice was extremely aggravated by her mother’s constant nagging.” Who can spot the error? (Pause.) In fact, you cannot aggravate a person – you can irritate a person, or you can aggravate a situation. It is grammatically incorrect to state that Alice was aggravated. (Wait for groans.)
21SAT ScoringEach correct answer earns 1 full point, regardless of level of difficulty.Each unanswered question earns a student 0 points.Each incorrect answer to a Student-Produced Response question earns a student 0 points.Students lose 1/4 point for each incorrect answer to a multiple-choice question.Point of this slide: basic overview of how the test is scored.Basic TPR knowledge stuff.
22Why Students Struggle with the SAT High SchoolNumber of Questions on the examsDesigned so you can’t finish or you really have to rush to finishDesigned so you can finishAnswer ChoicesWritten to trick students and filled with common errorsGoal is to assess strength’s and weaknesses, not to try to get a student to answer all questions incorrectly!Essay25 minHours & weeksReadingUnder serious time constraintsRead at homeWritingGRAMMAR!Grammar has little emphasis in most schoolsMathIntentionally hard to understand and convolutedStraight forwardPoint of this slide: to show the differences between a HS test and the SAT. It is one of the main reasons students struggle.Get a show of hands and audience participation:How many of you find the idea of taking the SAT a little stressful and would prefer not to take it?The reason that students find the SAT so stressful is because the test writers designed it to be the pretty much the opposite of how you’ve learned to take tests in school.By a show of hands, how many of you have teachers who design tests that you can finish in the allotted time? (there should be a lot of hands that go up)On the SAT, they design it so you are under a time crunch and you will be rushing to finish because they know you are used to finishing tests! You rush, you make mistakes.Walk through the chart until you get to grammar again. Kids and parents know that grammar is a problem.Ask the question to Parent:Parents – how many of you have diagrammed a sentence?(you’ll see lots of hands going up)Ask the same question to Students:Students – how many of you have diagrammed a sentence?(very few hands will go up)Point of this is that grammar is TOUGH for students because we just don’t do it in school like we used to.
23Why Students Struggle with the SAT The Answer ChoicesThe SAT writers are at their best when writing answer choices they know will lure you in!How do they know which choices you’ll like/not like?Students have shown them in past experimental sections.People are PREDICTABLE!Answer choices on the test are actually more troublesome than content! Any which way you could make a mistake – that answer will be there. You are rushing through the test, take one wrong step in figuring something out, look down – there’s the answer choice so you must be right. You circle it. ETS know you are going to do this.Oh no, I’m calling you (and me) predictable. How awful! We’re not predictable! How dare ETS call me predictable.
24If you don’t know an answer, should you guess? It depends GuessingIf you don’t know an answer, should you guess? It dependsPoint of this slide: introduce the concept of guessing in relation to POETypical TPR stuff. Explain the benefits of guessing when you can eliminate answer choices effectively.
25SAT MathNot difficult math. Everything you need to know for SAT math you’ve learned by the end of your sophomore year!Questions in 2 math sections of the SAT will be in order of difficulty. The first third will be easy, the middle third will be medium difficulty, and the final third will be hard.Keep in mind that easy questions will have easy answers. Difficult questions will have difficult answers.Knowing the order of difficulty in a test section helps you significantly when eliminating answer choices and determining your testing strategy.Point of slide: shows the importance of little things like order of difficulty and an impact they can have on scores.So how does knowing the order of difficulty help me? Remember a couple slides ago where we spoke about the biggest reason students struggle on the test is because for years they have been conditioned to take tests the “school” way. A teacher in high school doesn’t order her questions, typically, in order of difficulty.Here’s what a typical student does on the SAT:Starts off racing through the test. They only have 25 minutes and they have to answer all of the questions. They actually don’t, but because they do in school, that’s the way they approach the test!The first questions are easy so they race through them. Medium ones they still find doable, go quickly through them. By this time they have 15 minutes left because they’ve raced through the first two easier sections and they spend their entire last 10 minutes trying to answer the hard questions. Why? Because they are hard!!! It will take them a long time to answer.When a student puts their pencils down, they’ll find that they missed most of the easy questions because they were rushing, making careless errors, and falling for trap answers. They did a lot of it in the medium questions. They got all of the difficult ones wrong because they are DIFFICULT. These questions have been tested on students and students get them wrong.Main point here – ESPECIALLY ON THE MATH. Go slow through the easy questions. Get them right because you can, don’t make careless errors.Unless you are shooting for a HIGH score, leave the difficult questions alone.At this point you say that all TPR students have their OWN pacing chart tailored to their strengths, weaknesses and desired score. TPR students know which questions to skip, focus on, etc.

27SAT – Math Sample Problem 18.Go ahead & give it a try!In the figure above, what is the greatest number of non-overlapping regions into which the shaded region can be divided with exactly two straight lines?65432By a show of hands, who thought the correct answer was?E) D) C) B) A) 6
28SAT – Math Sample Problem 11242433The question basically asked you to divide this doughnut into the highest number of shaded regions possible using 2 straight lines!

31SAT Reading Comprehension: Passages These are little, open-book tests. Make sure you go back to the passage and come up with your own answer before looking at the answer choices.On long passages, the questions will appear chronologically. Speed up your search for an answer by knowing where to look!Here are just a couple of examples of how we help our students with the test’s reading passages. Students struggle with these! Especially on the long passages. Why, um, because they are really, really LONG. And BORING. Who is going to be able to really focus on retention when reading about the migratory habits of polar bears at 8:50am on a Saturday morning!
32SAT Writing: EssayHow long do you think your English teacher takes to grade your essays?How long do you think your SAT graders will take to grade your essays?Ask the audience how long they think English teachers take to grade essays. You’ll get anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 weeks.Ask how long the graders spend on their SAT essay. You’ll get shorter timeframes but nobody will guess a minute. Usually.Get their answers. Pause – go to next screen.
33SAT Writing: Essay No, we’re not kidding! SAT essays are graded in approximately 60 seconds.2 graders spend about a minute each to give you a total score from 2-12.No, we’re not kidding!They are going quickly – keep that in mind when you write your essay! First impressions count!
34SAT Writing: Essay Length counts. Use those lines. Using the graders to your advantage:Length counts. Use those lines.Think before you write!Neatness will count.Answer the question.Conclusion.Triumph of style over substance.Keep it simple.If you can’t spell it, don’t use it.Length: First impressions count! Use all of the lines. Gives the first impression that you did a through job answering the question.Structure (into, supporting points, conclusion) is important to your score. Don’t just start writing. Think about how you are going to structure your essay.Technically, neatness doesn’t count. BUT, when we are talking about someone who has been reading a 100 essays and her eyes are tired messy penmanship doesn’t make it easy for her to be impressed. Oh, and, if it is illegible – they can’t give you a score.Answer the actual question! Because of the big, long distracting paragraph, you can get off track with answering the actual question in the assignment!No perfect score without one!While your substance has to be more than blah, blah, blah, if you connect the dots, use solid examples, and tie it together well, you are good to go. You don’t have to be Shakespeare!Simple is key to accomplish answering the questions.Spelling doesn’t technically count but it sticks out like a SORE THUMB! Just don’t use words you can’t spell. Find an alternate word you know does the trick and that you can spell!
35SAT/ACT Optional Schools Over 815 colleges and universities across the United States admit a substantial number of students without regard to test scores.This list of schools includes colleges and universities that deemphasize the use of standardized tests by making admissions decisions about substantial numbers of applicants who recently graduated from U.S. high schools.Some schools exempt students who meet grade-point average or class rank criteria while others require SAT or ACT scores but use them only for placement purposes or to conduct research studies.Please check with the school's admissions office to learn more about specific admissions requirements, particularly for international or non-traditional students.For a complete listing of SAT/ACT optional schools visitIncluded this slide because SAT/ACT optional schools are getting much more play in the media. Schools are getting wise to these tests! That’s good.So, should you forget about the test all together?.....Move on to next slide
36WARNING!!In many cases, SAT and ACT scores are very important in determining financial aid awards.Even if a school is SAT/ACT optional you still want to take the tests (yuck) and do well. Higher scores = more money.You may change your list and decide to apply to a college that requires SAT/ACT scores!No – you need to take the test for two reasons:It’s not all schools. What if you want to add a school to apply to at the last minute but they want scores? Cover your bases.Financial aid decisions are often based on your scores.
37A word about SAT Score Choice Since virtually all colleges use the highest single-sitting score OR mix and match subject scores, it doesn’t make sense for students to not release all of their test results.Some schools require you send all of your scores.Using Score Choice could do more harm than good, especially when dealing with schools that mix and match subject scores.It’s confusing, you’ll end up paying for additional reports or even forgetting to submit scores, resulting in late applications.Why is it even there?College Board’s newest money maker.Competition with the ACT.Due to the fact that virtually EVERY college will either require you to send all scores, take the highest sitting score, or mix and match high subject scores make it absolutely senseless to use Score Choice.
38What about the ACT? SAT ACT When is it administered? Seven times per yearSix times per yearWhat is tested?Math, Reading, Writing, EssayMath, Reading, Writing, Science, Optional EssayWhat is the test structure?Ten-section exam plus a Masked experimental section.Four-section exam. Experimental section is OPTIONAL and is clearly marked.Penalty for wrong answers?YesNoWhat do the tests measure?How well you take the SATHow well you take the ACTOffered in my state?Yes - accepted by virtually all schools in lieu of SAT scores.Walk through the differences. The ACT is still a standardized test, still tricky and sneaky. It’s not a BETTER test it’s just a DIFFERENT test.In particular, we’ve found that strong readers do exceptionally well on the ACT since 3 of the 4 sections are all about reading (yes, I included the science section.)Some students will find that they do significantly better on one test than the other!
39Which test should I take? SAT and/or ACT?Which test should I take?There is NO downside to taking both tests. We encourage it!Free Practice Tests (SAT, ACT)Princeton Review Assessment (PRA)Look online at to find a practice test near you!It is a great idea. Let people know that we have a test that will help them determine how they would do on either test and that we’d be more than happy to send them one. Just have them send us an , give us a call, or write SEND PRA or SEND ACT practice test (or both) on their call me cards. We can produce a score report for both. We would also be more than happy to discuss the differences between the tests more in-depth via phone consultation. Just fill out the call cards and we’ll give you a call.Especially for the ACT, there is no downside other than the 40+ bucks it will cost you to take the test. Don’t like your scores, no biggie. They don’t have to go anywhere! If they are much better than your SAT scores you could be talking a whole different ball game in terms of where you could go to school.
