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 received notification that their scores are available 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 access to BigFuture® School and College Board accounts will have access to robust online reporting information that includes scores from all tests in the SAT Suite. On the score reporting portal, students can interact with their score report, filtering test questions by difficulty and skill and viewing complete answer explanations. In the BigFuture School mobile app, students will receive customized career possibilities, information about financial aid and scholarships, and guidance to help plan for college.

Additional Best Practices

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

  • Review detailed student reports in the K–12 Reporting Portal to identify students' strengths in each content domain in the Knowledge and Skills section of their report.
  • Show students how they can use results to get free, tailored Official Digital SAT® Prep 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 college and career planning as well as scholarship and financial aid information on the BigFuture School app.



BigFuture School Mobile App
