AP Potential Expectancy Tables Based on PSAT/NMSQT and SAT Scores on the 2015-16 Redesigned Scales Using Final Concordance Tables. Statistical Report
Ewing, Maureen; Wyatt, Jeff
College Board
Historically, AP Potential™ has used PSAT/NMSQT® scores to identify students who are likely to earn a 3 or higher on a specific AP Exam based on research showing moderate to strong relationships between PSAT/NMSQT scores and AP Exam scores (Camara & Millsap, 1998; Ewing, Camara, & Millsap, 2006; Zhang, Patel, & Ewing, 2014a). For most subjects, AP Potential expectancy tables have been derived by combining tenth and eleventh grade PSAT/NMSQT data with scores from AP Exams taken as either eleventh or twelfth graders during the following academic year. For AP European History and AP World History, ninth grade PSAT/NMSQT scores and tenth grade AP Exam scores were also recently included in the expectancy table calculations (Zhang, Patel, & Ewing, 2014b). Starting with the launch of the redesigned SAT® Suite of Assessments (i.e., PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, PSAT/NMSQT, and SAT) in the 2015-16 academic year, AP Potential will also be reported based on scores from additional PSAT tests (depending on the student's grade level) as well as be extended to reporting based on SAT scores. The purpose of this report is (1) to describe how we created blended AP Potential tables that include PSAT/NMSQT and SAT data and (2) to present these new tables on the 2015-16 redesigned scale for the SAT Suite of Assessments. Descriptive Statistics for PSAT/NMSQT and SAT Samples by AP Exam are appended.
