SAT INFORMATION

SAT Information

The SAT is the nation's most widely used admissions test among colleges and universities.

Preliminary SAT 9th grade

SAT 9th Grade Parent Letter

Dear Parent or Guardian,

The purpose of this letter is to inform you that your student will take the Preliminary SAT 9 (PSAT 9) on October 14th,2020.  The PSAT 9 tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10—in a way that makes sense for eighth and ninth graders. It measures what they’re already learning, shows them whether they’re on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. That means students have time to tackle these areas long before they take the SAT.  The following are other key benefits of the PSAT 9.

  • It helps establish a baseline for students as they enter high school and begin preparing for college and career readiness.
  • It will identify areas where students excel and may want to consider taking higher-level courses, as well as areas they should focus on to improve academically.
  • It provides students with better access to data and personalized study through the online CollegeBoard and Khan Academy resources.

For additional information, including practice tests and sample questions regarding this assessment, please refer to the PSAT 8/9 Student Guide on the CollegeBoard website at http://collegeboard.org.

Please review the following calculator tips & policy with your student before testing:

Calculator tips for PSAT 9:

  • Students are strongly encouraged to bring a calculator to the PSAT 9 on test day, whether or not they plan to use it.
  • Take a calculator you are comfortable using. Do not buy a new one just for the test.
  • Do not try to use the calculator on every question. No question requires one.
  • Decide how to solve each problem before deciding whether to use a calculator.
  • Practice sample questions with a calculator on hand.

Calculator Policy

  • Refer to the PSAT 9 Student Guide for a complete listing of approved calculators. 
  • Your device may NOT be a pocket organizer, hand-held or laptop computer, electronic writing pad, tablet, or pen input device, calculator with a QWERTY (typewriter-like) keypad, calculator with paper tape, calculator that makes noises or "talks", calculator with a power cord or that requires an outlet.

If you have any questions, please contact Brandy Meadows at [email protected] (386) 575-4153 Ext. 44040.

Please note that PSAT 9 scores are not sent to colleges.

Thank you,

Michael Micallef

Mide lo que ya ellos han aprendido, les muestra si están encaminados hacia la preparación para la universidad y las áreas en las que deben mejorar. Esto significa que los estudiantes tienen tiempo para trabajar en esas áreas con mucha anticipación, antes de tomar el SAT. A continuación, les presentamos otros importantes beneficios del PSAT 9.

The “in school ACT” test administration will occur October 6th- 8th, 2020 at Deltona HS. Your student has been selected to participate in this opportunity in hopes of earning a concordant score.
