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.

Student Participation in the State Assessments: PSAT10 and SAT

Participating in the SAT School Day and PSAT10 School Day 

Below is a clarification of who can participate in the April 2019 administration of the SAT School Day and PSAT10 tests.

  • Public School Students: It is expected students attending public school in Rhode Island will participate in the required tests for their current grade level. Public school students are expected to participate in the PSAT10 School Day administration in grade 10, and the SAT School Day or the alternate assessments in grade 11.
  • Students Attending Outplacement Schools: It is expected that students attending an outplacement school, whose tuition is paid for by a Rhode Island LEA will participate in the required tests for their current grade level. Students attending outplacement schools are expected to participate in the PSAT10 School Day administration in grade 10, and the SAT School Day or alternate assessments in grade 11.
  • Alternate Assessment Students: Students who qualify for the alternate assessment will not take the SAT School Day or the PSAT10. 
    • Eleventh-grade students will take the Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) alternate assessments in English language arts, mathematics, and science. 
    • Tenth-grade students will not participate in state assessments. There is NO alternate assessment at the 10th grade.
  • Homeschooled Students: Any student who is being homeschooled who lives in Rhode Island can participate in the PSAT10 School Day administration in grade 10 and the SAT School Day in grade 11 free of charge.  Students may participate in the April 2019 administration of the SAT School Day and PSAT10 for no cost. This does not apply to any other College Board test administrations (Saturday administrations, 8/9 PSAT, NMSQT, AP tests, or School Day administrations in any month other than April).
    • Parents: If you are interested in having your homeschooled student participate in either of these assessments in April, 2019, please contact your district office and notify them that your child will participate in either the PSAT10 or SAT at the high school in your city or town. 
    • Districts: Enrollment information for any homeschooled student must be updated in the Enrollment Census through eRIDE. Scores of homeschooled students will not be used for accountability purposes. Use the following to ensure the students will be correctly registered:
      • Enrollment Type = H (Homeschooled)
      • Enrollment record must be active
      • Grade = either 10th or 11th grade
      • School = the high school in your city or town where they will take the test
      • SASID = Each homeschooled student should have a valid SASID
      • Additionally: 
        • Student Answer Sheets should be completed with the homeschooled indicator bubbled in (box 2). 
        • Provide each parent with the school’s preadministration and test day schedules, parent privacy letter, and any other necessary information.


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.

How to Create Test Coordinator and SSD Coordinator Accounts

  • SAT School Day Supervisor
  • PSAT10 Supervisor
