    Scholar Resources

    For additional information on the assessments, please review the linked student guides below:


    SAT & PSAT/NMSQT Practice on Khan Academy

    Taking an SAT practice test is good practice for the PSAT/NMSQT because the assessments measure the same skills and knowledge in ways that make sense for different grade levels. The College Board and Khan Academy® have partnered to make practicing easy and personal. At Khan Academy, you can access thousands of questions approved by the College Board, take official SAT practice tests, and create personalized study plans based on your results. Prepare for SAT success with Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy® at www.satpractice.org.


    ACT Test Prep and Practice on ACT.org

    The ACT has a plethora of resources and practice questions/tests on their website, directly from the makers of the assessment. Please visit Free ACT Test Prep for more information and resources.



    We are dedicated to ensuring our scholars who qualify for accommodations on assessments are able to receive them. If your scholar currently receives accommodations as documented in an IEP, 504 plan, and/or ELL plan, please do not wait; request accommodations on the SAT, PSAT, and/or the ACT today. Please note, that scholars who typically receive accommodations do not automatically receive accommodations on any of the aforementioned assessments. Accommodations must be requested and approved before the assessment in order for your scholar to participate with accommodations—otherwise they may participate in the assessment without accommodations.

    To request accommodations for a documented disability for College Board tests & the ACT test, please gather the following information a) scholar full name, b) Scholar ID number, c) accommodations to be requested, and d) a signed copy of BOTH of the parental consent form (for College Board & ACT). The consent forms linked below and can be returned to Mr. Haire in person OR emailed to Mr. Haire. Once that information is collected, please email Mr. Haire at ryan.haire@osceolaschools.net to confirm your request is received. Please note that the deadline for requesting accommodations for our SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and ACT School Days has passed (was 2:30PM on Thursday, August 17, 2023.)

    Requests received after this deadline may be submitted; however, not in time for approval on the school day assessments in October. Keep in mind that scholars who do not have an IEP, 504, or EL Plan on file will likely not receive accommodations from the College Board or the ACT.

    UPDATED NOTE: Though the deadline for requesting accommodations has passed for the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and ACT school days, you may still request accommodations if your scholar plans to participate in any of these assessments on national dates throughout the school year.
