• The SAT Suite of Assessments is comprised of the PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, and SAT. Students are assessed using the PSAT 8/9 during the spring of their freshman year, the PSAT 10 during the spring of their sophomore year, and the SAT during the spring of their junior year. The SAT suite is aligned to Illinois Learning Standards in English Language Arts and mathematics. The assessments are research based and assess skills and concepts essential for students to be college and career ready. The common scale score allows students, parents/guardians, and school staff to measure growth across academic years and at both the program and student level.

  • PSAT 8/9

    The PSAT 8/9 provides baseline data for students, parents/guardians, and teachers. It helps identify areas of strength and opportunities for growth at the grade, program, course, and student level. This information informs instruction and allows school staff to better meet the needs of all students.
