Tuesday, December 3 - Wednesday, December 4
Categories: Middle School
8th grade students will be taking the PSAT on December 3, 2019. PSAT 8/9 stands for Preliminary SAT. It's a standardized test specifically for 8th and 9th grade students that provides firsthand practice for the SAT Reasoning Test™. The PSAT 8/9 assesses critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills, and writing skills. Your student has developed these skills over many years, both in and out of school. This test does not require him or her to recall specific facts from classes.
Please remember it is important that students get a good night’s sleep before test day and eat a nutritious breakfast that morning. Be sure that students arrive on time and are in their testing classrooms no later than 8 am with several sharpened number 2 pencils. Students will need to bring their own calculators for the math portion of the test. A scientific or graphing calculator is recommended. Students may not share calculators, use pocket organizers, or use cell phone calculators. Testing will finish no later than 11 am at which time students will go to lunch and attend their regularly scheduled afternoon classes. If your child receives extended time, the AEC staff will communicate the testing schedule for that day.
