BHS Assessment Schedule

During the 2015-2016 school year, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) accepted a bid from SAT to replace ACT as the college entrance exam required of all 11th graders.

The official test date for the junior SAT is April 5, 2017.  On this day, freshmen students will take the PSAT 8/9.  The PSAT 8/9 is a test that will help students and teachers figure out what you need to work on most so that you’re ready for college when you graduate from high school.  On April 5th, the sophomores will learn more about the SAT and ways to prepare for the assessment.

The College Board website offers information on the test.  “Inside the SAT,” provides an overview of the test with links to more specific information.  Additionally, the College Board has partnered with Khan Academy to provide test preparation free of charge.  We would encourage all juniors to complete the following steps:

  • Create a College Board account and link this account to Khan academy.
  • Create a practice plan at Khan academy. (There is a video in the “Tips and Planning” section to help you get started.)  When this plan is created, the site will build a personalized study plan.
  • Encourage your student to take a full-length SAT practice test.  (College Board recommends that students take two practice tests at least five weeks apart to measure progress.)
  • Download the Daily Practice for the New SAT app.  This app is available through Google Play and the iTunes app store.  The app provides a question a day.  Even more exciting, the app scans and scores paper SAT practice tests.

Optional Exams for BHS Students

The PSAT/NMSQT and AP Exams are offered through College Board as a way to earn scholarships or college credit for high school courses.  These exams would be taken by students who have taken the appropriate AP course to prepare for the exam or who are high achieving and may qualify for National Merit.  Please follow the links below for more information about each exam and details on how to register.
