Through its programs, the College Board collects data that are used to improve our programs and better serve our students. Moreover, these data are used to help inform the education community. Whether SAT, AP, or PSAT/NMSQT, the following pages are comprised of helpful data we share in an effort to be as supportive and transparent for better evidence-based decision making.
The Advanced Placement Program® (AP) provides opportunities for motivated and prepared students to experience college-level courses while in high school, thereby fostering critical thinking and college persistence and success.
The PSAT/NMSQT is reasoning skills assessment that provides students practice for the SAT, insight on performance and a scholarship opportunity.
The SAT tests the reading, writing and mathematics skills that students learn in school, and that are critical for success in college and beyond. There are also the SAT Subject Tests™ which are hour-long, content-based tests that allow students to showcase achievement in specific subject areas.
