Introducing the PSAT for 8th Graders

 On November 3, 2016, W.T. Chipman Middle School students will participate in the PSAT 8/9 Assessment. Last school year, College Board unveiled a new suite of assessments that align to the Common Core State Standards in Math and ELA. Students now have the opportunity to prepare for high school, the SAT, and college like never before. The PSAT 8/9 is the first test in the SAT Suite of Assessments. It is directly aligned with the PSAT/NMSQT and the SAT, and will establish a baseline for college and career readiness. Please read the article to get full details.

If you are interested in bringing a delegation from your school, contact the Youth in Government State Director, Sam Sachs. Suggested group size is 12 or fewer.
