Welcome to the Rockwall ISD PSAT 10 Day Challenge: Preparing for Wednesday, October 16th, 2019!
What is the PSAT?
The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT)is a standardized, college readiness test administered by the College Board. It provides 10th and 11th Grade students with the opportunity to measure their readiness for college-level work, to share information about themselves with the colleges and universities that interest them, and to practice taking college readiness exams such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test (ACT) as juniors or seniors.
What is the "PSAT 10 Day Challenge"?
All Rockwall ISD 10th and 11th Graders will receive preparation for the PSAT through their English classes. This preparation will take the form of the "PSAT 10 Day Challenge", in which students will be presented with 10 mini-lessons that provides students with new skills and test-taking strategies that they can use on the October 16th, 2019 PSAT.
PSAT Google Site
What is the purpose of this Google Site?
Rockwall ISD students taking dual credit English as juniors will miss the "10 Day Challenge" lessons since they are not taking their English class at a Rockwall ISD high school. This site will provide students with the chance to experience the 10 Day Challenge lessons in an independent, self-paced environment. Other students wanting to review the "10 Day Challenge" lessons may also find this Google Site to be an excellent resource when preparing to take the PSAT or SAT. When working with this resource, we recommend breaking up the topics to 10 minutes- per-a-day format.
Please remember to bookmark this site so you can easily return throughout the duration of the "10 Day Challenge".
