(Fall 2023 Paper SAT School Day Only) What is preadministration?

Preadministration refers to a session that a school may hold ahead of test day where students fill out a portion of their demographic information. This saves time on test day and helps students focus when they take the test. For paper administrations, schools that order by a specific date will receive their preadministration materials (answer sheets, coordinator manual, student answer sheet instructions, and student guides) early. Schools that order after that date will receive their preadministration materials with their test materials no later than one week of ahead of testing.

Note: Preadministration materials are sent prior to test day for all U.S. paper test orders if an order is placed prior to the preadministration deadline.

Preadministration is not available for non-U.S. school orders.
