January 22-26 is SAT Practice Kickoff WeekKatherine Welk, Director, Communications
In December, millions of students received scores from the 2017 PSAT/NMSQT. Along with their scores, these students now have access to a free, personalized SAT plan on Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy.
Over five million students have practiced on Official SAT Practice since its launch. Research shows that studying on Official SAT Practice for 20 hours is associated with an average score gain of 115 points from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT.
Help your students take the next step on their journey to college and unlock their free, personalized SAT study plan by joining SAT Practice Kickoff Week.
WHEN: January 22-26, 2018
WHAT: SAT Practice Kickoff Week is a global challenge to get students to link their College Board and Khan Academy accounts to access their personalized SAT study plan based on PSAT/NMSQT scores. Their study plan will help them focus on the areas where they need the most work.
Three U.S. schools districts (including Puerto Rico and Guam), two U.S. private schools, and two international schools with the overall highest percentage of 2017 PSAT/NMSQT takers who connect accounts between Oct. 1, 2017 and Jan. 26, 2018 will be selected as winners*. They’ll receive the chance to get free professional development from Khan Academy on using Official SAT Practice to support classroom learning, and the new coach tools.
Special recognition will be given to those with the highest increase in linked accounts during the week of the challenge (Jan. 22-26).
HOW: Get your faculty involved by sharing resources for linking accounts and promoting SAT practice at satpractice.org/k12. Get inspiration from these district case studies–including Chicago Public Schools– that examine successful strategies for engaging students on Official SAT Practice.
