A shift of this magnitude would not happen with a well-designed exam. That account 4 years ago suggested that millions of students improved their performance concurrently. The simpler reading was that the 2015 PSAT—the first edition of the completely overhauled exam administered a year prior—was a lemon. It appears the same failure to produce consistency from exam to exam has reoccured. We hope, with this report, to preclude any false narratives.
The College Board says its current test is less about achievement and more about your aptitude for learning, your verbal skills, and your reasoning skills. The sza overweight College Board’s redesigned SAT and PSAT will focus more on skills you learn in high school. In other words, the redesigned tests will be more like the ACT.
I got a good understanding of why PSAT 2019 Scores seemed so different after reading this report. My son got a 1510 as a sophomore on the PSAT 2018 and 1480 as a junior taking the test in 2019. His school usually has 40+ National Merit Semifinalists every year, but this year just an informal poll of the student scores locally at the school level, using the same cutoff as last year did not yield even 30.
TheReading Testchallenges students’ ability to read extended passages and answer questions based on their critical reading skills. TheWriting and Languagesection requires students to identify grammar errors in a multiple-choice format primarily looking for the ability to recognize errors in grammar, punctuation, and usage. The College Board has Score Choice where students can choose to send only certain scores to colleges. Sometimes a school wants to see ALL scores by a student, but the good news is that most colleges only want to know a student’s highest score.
The distribution is skewed significantly toward lower scores as soon as you move away from perfect scores. I did not publish the distributions, though, because they are based only on a sample. No, College Board doesn’t report the score distribution except in the broadest swaths. Our sample data and our modeling based on the swaths all point in the same direction. I am extremely confident that we will see fewer 222, 223, 224 scores this year.
Must be greater than zero, eliminate all negative answer choices. Even if you can’t solve the problem, you should guess from the remaining choices. If you’ve ever taken a standardized test—like the SAT, ACT, or PSAT—you’ve probably encountered some questions that you didn’t know how to answer.
