PSAT10 and SAT School Day

Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, the PSAT10 and the SAT assessments will be administered to all 10th and 11th grade high school students in Rhode Island.

The PSAT10 and SAT School Day replaced the PARCC assessments at high school. This will ensure that all students can use the SAT to consider higher education opportunities. Increasing participation in the PSAT10 and the SAT is the first step to having more students be college and career ready. These assessments maintain an appropriately high standard for Rhode Island students and should be a good tool to help the state close the gap between expected future job requirements for post-secondary education and current college enrollment and completion.

Test Supervisor (Test Coordinator) and SSD Coordinator Accounts

In preparation for administering the PSAT10 and SAT School Day, each high school must have the following (a person can fill more than one role, if necessary):

  • SAT School Day Supervisor
  • PSAT10 Supervisor
  • SSD Coordinator (Services for Students with Disabilities)
  • Back-up Supervisor(s)

All accommodations must be requested by the SSD Coordinator through the SSD Online portal.

Matching College Board Student Accounts and Registration


If a student is signed into his/her College Board account, but does not see his/her score, it means we were not able to automatically link the student score report to the student account.

For security reasons, a student must verify additional information before we can display his/her scores.  The student will need either his/her SAT registration number or the Student ID number the student was pre-identified with by the school/district or state.

To match, the student will:

  1. Go to https://studentscores.collegeboard.org/viewscore and log in.
  2. Scroll down and click on Matching Tool.
  3. Review the personal information.
  4. If any information is incorrect or missing, click Update to revise. Students will be prompted to re-enter their password.
  5. If the information is correct, click Get My Scores.
  6. The student will have to provide information about his/her test. 
  7. For SAT:  The test information includes test date and registration number, which can be found by educators in the Roster Report of the K-12 Reporting Portal.
  8. For PSAT 10: The test information includes an access code, which can be found by educators in the Roster Report of the K-12 Reporting Portal.

NOTE: There may still be cases in which a student is not able to view his/her scores using the steps above because the information is too different or the scores have not yet been finalized. If students still cannot view their scores, they should call the College Board’s Student SAT Helpline at 1-866-756-7346

Score Availability Information: EDUCATORS

Educator Score Availability

In order to ensure that all students are reported under the appropriate school, RIDE is given time to review student data before scores are released to educators. SAT scores were released in the College Board K-12 reporting portal on May 21 and PSAT10 scores were released on June 11, 2018.

Educator Access to Scores in the College Board K-12 Reporting Portal

Educators will be able to view SAT scores through the College Board K-12 Reporting Portal. The reporting portal consists of two areas: 

  1. Report Center: allows educators to configure and run online reports, apply filters for data analysis, print student reports, and find student registration information.
  2. Download Center: provides access to downloadable files of scores

Educators need two things to access student scores in the score reporting portal:

  1. A College Board professional account. If you don’t have an account, create one.
  2. Permission from your institution’s access manager.

To find out the name of your school’s access manager:

  1. Log in to your College Board professional account.
  2. Click on My Dashboard.
  3. Scroll down to Add Additional Tools and Services > K–12 > K–12 Assessment Reporting > Request Access
  4. You should see the name and contact info of your access manager.
  5. Please note that choosing Request Access from the portal dashboard does not notify your access manager, you still need to contact your access manager directly to receive access.

For additional questions about the K-12 Reporting Portal, contact John O’Reilly at joreilly@collegeboard.org

SAT School Day Results

Exemptions from Testing

ALL Rhode Island public school students — including students with disabilities and students receiving services in-state or out-of-state at outplacement special education facilities — are expected to take part in Rhode Island’s statewide assessment program. 

Students who experience a medical emergency or crisis during testing may be eligible for an exemption. RIDE defines a medical emergency as an incident involving a medical condition or injury or a crisis requiring hospitalization, clinical care, or special treatment in response to the incident. Typically, the incident prevents the student from receiving instruction and from participating in assessment for the remainder of the testing window. The assessment exemptions policy extends to the SAT and the PSAT 10, administered in April, 2018, since both assessments are now part of the statewide assessment program.

To review guidance, obtain forms, and submit a medical exemption for a student who is taking the SAT or PSAT10, please visit the Assessment Exemptions page of our website.
