Every fall, students take the PSAT/NMSQT to help determine their level of readiness for college. The PSAT/NMSQT Summary Reports summarize the characteristics, scores, and educational plans of the sophomores and juniors who took the exam.

PSAT/NMSQT data and AP

Using PSAT/NMSQT data, researchers have found that PSAT/NMSQT scores are predictive of AP Exam performance. As a result, the College Board developed AP Potential, a free, web-based tool that allows schools to generate rosters of students who are likely to score a 3 or better on a given AP Exam. AP Potential is designed to help schools increase access to AP and to ensure that no student who has the chance of succeeding in AP is overlooked.
