There were testing irregularities with PSAT administration to 10th and 11th grade students on Wednesday, October 11th. As we are learning more about what happened, we are finding that several centrally located platform system upload errors impacted many 10th and 11th-grade students’ ability to take the PSAT on Wednesday, including student first names being incorrect on the tickets or even no tickets generated for some students at all. As a result, a make-up date will be offered on Tuesday, October 24th to those 10th and 11th grade students who would like to take the PSAT.
The decision to retake the PSAT for 10th and 11th-grade students will be a family decision. Please speak with your child about this option. If a student wants to retake the PSAT, Mr. Niggli sent a link via School Messenger to register for the retake to parent email addresses.
If you do NOT want your child to take the make-up PSAT, then you do not need to do anything.
Bellaire HS Testing Coordinator Gregory Mills has a list of the students who did not have a ticket generated and who had an incorrect first name so that they will be automatically enrolled for the make-up PSAT.
To submit names for make-up testing and plan accordingly, the survey will close at 5:00 PM on Tuesday, October 17th. So, if you want to take the make-up PSAT, please complete the survey before 5:00 pm on Tuesday, October 17th.
