PSAT 8/9:

The PSAT 8/9 is the first in the SAT Suite of Assessments.  Tightly aligned with the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10, it establishes a baseline for college and career readiness as students enter high school.  The PSAT 8/9 is designed for eighth- and ninth-graders.  ReadiStep has been discontinued.

The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program cosponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). It's a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT®. It also gives you a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools.

NISD currently offers the PSAT test to all sophomores and juniors as a tool to prepare for the SAT and National Merit Scholarship program.  The test is given once a year in October.  For questions regarding this test, please contact your high school Counselor.
