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)

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.
