The PSAT is an exam co-sponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). The PSAT is a standardized test that provides firsthand practice for the SAT.  It also gives students a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools. 10th Grade students will have their PSAT paid for by the Indiana Department of Education.  11th grade students that wish to take the PSAT, and potentially qualify for National Merit Scholarships, will be required to pay $14.00.  Juniors may register to take the PSAT in Room C-203 from September 9-13th.  11th grade students that do not wish to take the PSAT will be administered the ASVAB exam.  The ASVAB exam is free of charge through the ASVAB career exploration program.  It is the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world.  The ASVAB was originally designed to predict future academic and occupational success in military occupations, since 1968 numerous validation studies indicate the ASVAB assesses academic ability and predicts success in a wide variety of occupations.  Several composite scores are formed from different combinations of ASVAB test scores. Three composites, or Career Exploration Scores, are provided specifically to help students engage in career exploration. These scores help students get a good sense of their verbal, math, and science and technical skills compared to other students in the same grade.
