    PSAT Update

    All eighth grade students enrolled in a Humble ISD schools will be taking the PSAT 8/9 test on Wednesday, October 16, 2019.

    What is the PSAT 8/9 Test?

    The PSAT 8/9 is the first in the College Board’s “SAT Suite of Assessments” and is offered to eighth and ninth graders. The purpose of the PSAT 8/9 is to establish a starting point in terms of college and career readiness as students transition to high school. It’s a way for students to practice for the PSAT 10, the PSAT/NMSQT, and the SAT. The test is multiple choice and is timed. The test will be administered on Wednesday, October 16, 2019.

    The PSAT 8/9, like the PSAT 10, PSAT/NMSQT and SAT, has three testing areas: Reading (55 minutes), Writing and Language (30 Minutes), and Math (No calculator section= 20 minutes and Calculator Section= 40 minutes). WMS will provide calculators for students on test day. Each test assesses the academic skills that students have developed over the years, primarily through their course work. These skills are considered essential for success in high school.
