The purpose of this paper is to provide information about how students' scores change when they retake the PSAT/NMSQT as juniors or take the SAT in the spring after they take the PSAT/NMSQT as juniors. Two research questions guided this study and motivated the approach for analysis of the data: How do scores change for students who took the…

Marini, Jessica P.; Mattern, Krista D.; Shaw, Emily J. – College Board, 2011
There is a common misperception that test scores do not predict above a minimum threshold (Sackett, Borneman, & Connelly, 2008). That is, test scores may be useful for identifying students with very low levels of ability; however, higher scores are considered unrelated to higher performance for those above a certain threshold. This study aims…

Zhang, Xiuyuan; Patel, Priyank; Ewing, Maureen – College Board, 2015
Historically, AP Potential™ correlations and expectancy tables have been based on 10th-and 11th-grade PSAT/NMSQT® examinees and 11th-and 12th-grade AP® examinees for all subjects (Zhang, Patel, & Ewing,2014; Ewing, Camara, & Millsap, 2006; Camara & Millsap, 1998). However, a large number of students take AP European History and AP…

Proctor, Thomas P.; Wyatt, Jeffrey; Wiley, Andrew – College Board, 2010
This report presents a methodology for the creation of a PSAT/NMSQT test score benchmark to identify students who are on track toward college readiness when completing high school. The proposed benchmark could create useful early indicators of whether students in grades 10 and 11 are on track to be college ready upon high school graduation. Two…

Kim, YoungKoung; DeCarlo, Lawrence T. – College Board, 2016
Because of concerns about test security, different test forms are typically used across different testing occasions. As a result, equating is necessary in order to get scores from the different test forms that can be used interchangeably. In order to assure the quality of equating, multiple equating methods are often examined. Various equity…
