California Rural and Small Town OSP Challenge
California Rural and Small Town OSP ChallengeCollege Board Communications
Last month, we shared exciting new research results: Students who used Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy showed substantial improvement from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT. 20 hours of practice was associated with an average 115-point increase, nearly double the average gain among students who did not use Official SAT Practice.
To bring these results to more students in the state of California, the College Board has joined the National Rural Education Association, the National FFA Organization, local county and district superintendents, and local higher education institutions to launch the Official SAT Practice Rural and Small Town Challenge.
In 2017-2018, districts who participate in the challenge will:
- receive tools and support for Official SAT Practice implementation,
- gain access to enhanced data reports, and
- be eligible for VIP college visits and cash prizes based on student usage numbers.
Superintendents from rural and small California districts can sign up by July 30 at http://bit.ly/OSPRuralChallenge.

This work was made possible through the College Board’s two-year partnership with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI), which launched in May 2017 to provide personalized pathways to college success for millions of students.
