Practice,Practice, Practice (aka test familiarity)

**Due to the April 2020 cancellation of the RI Department of Education Spring SAT assessment, all seniors (class of 2021) will be participating in the School Day SAT on October 14, 2020. No registration is required. In the meantime, students should be spending a small amount of time daily preparing for the tests on the Khan Academy test prep site.  The benefit of this site is that they create a personalized practice plan based on each student's PSAT/NMSQT® scores taken in the fall of junior year. This year, juniors (class of 2022) are scheduled to take the PSAT/NMSQT on January 26, 2021.
