10th Grade Connections Classes- PSAT Interpretation
Return scores and show the following videos:
PSAT information from Ms. Caldewell (Thank you):
A few bullet points:
The test is made for juniors to take during fall of their junior year in order to prepare for the SAT that they are supposed to take in the spring of junior year. Our county chooses to give the Junior PSAT to the sophomores.
Also, because of this, please let the kids know that they are being compared to JUNIORS nationwide as far as any percentiles on their score sheet.
Lastly, there is a lot of algebra 2 on the PSAT and most sophomores have not had that class yet so.....again, tell them not to worry!
The MOST IMPORTANT thing for them to know is that on the front of their score report, there is a website and a personal access code for them to go in and look at their test scores in MORE detail.
Let them know that the answers are on the back of the form and they are getting back the actual book they used on test day so they can even look back at the questions comparing to their answers.
PLEASE tell them not to over worry about these scores as no one sees them except them...and us.
We will be doing IGP's with sophomores in February so if they have specific questions, please have them ask their counselor at their IGP.
YOU MIGHT NOTICE THAT SOME OF THEIR NAMES ARE WRONG ON THEIR SCORE REPORT---MIS BUBBLED OR ADDED LETTERS....I AM IN TOUCH WITH THE COLLEGEBOARD TO CORRECT THIS!
Q2 Final Grades are due January 18th by 4:00!
It is imperative that you follow the directions carefully to finalize your grades!
Grade verification checklists from previous years or that are accessed on the staff drive are no longer the correct process! Please follow the directions on this e-mail to finalize your grades.
If you need assistance with this process let Mrs. Finlay know.
