Best Practices for Sharing Results

Support students and parents by giving them more detailed information about score reports.

Student Information Sessions

Without some context for understanding their reports, students who have College Board accounts might rush to look at their scores and stop there. As a best practice, set up student information sessions to discuss online score reports before the students' scores are released.

Information sessions can include the importance of score reports and how to interpret them. To help students understand the information without the distraction of their own scores, we'll provide a sample score report.

Students with College Board accounts will have access to a robust online reporting portal that includes scores from all tests in the SAT Suite. On the portal, students can interact with their score report, filtering test questions by difficulty and skill and viewing complete answer explanations.

Additional Best Practices

You and your colleagues can further help students in these ways:

  • Review detailed reports in the integrated reporting portal to identify students' strengths in each content area.
  • Show students how they can use results to get free, personalized SAT® practice on Khan Academy®.
  • Use AP Potential™ to identify students who are likely to succeed in AP.
  • Show students how they can use their score to search for colleges on BigFuture.
