SAT Prep with Khan Academy
DHS 10th and 11th graders took the PSAT in October, 2015. They have an advantage that no student has had before. For the first time ever, they can connect the results of the their PSAT/NMSQT directly to Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy to create a free personalized practice plan just for them, focusing on improving the specific skills that will help them do their absolute best on the SAT and other high stakes exams. Khan Academy can be used to support the goal of each high school to have more students college and career ready. However, far too few students have linked their accounts to Khan Academy. A tremendous opportunity for free practice is missed if students do not link their data to the Khan platform.
