Hello Cougar Families and Happy Sunday,

We hope everybody enjoyed a little sunshine this weekend.

I am often asked for advice on parenting teenagers. It’s a similar feeling, maybe, to being asked for advice on how to housetrain a badger. However, I did come across a great resource recently that I thought I would share. Click here for the link to a short radio segment that contains some good insight and advice on parenting, teen mental health, and overcoming bullying.

Student Access to Scores

student access to scores

*Most student scores will be available on their College Board student account as they become available. Scores for some students may take longer to be released than others.

Student Access to Scores

Students will be able to access their individual score reports according to the schedule above.

  1. Students will need a free College Board account to view their scores online at https://studentscores.collegeboard.org/viewscore to log in to their existing account, or to sign up for a new College Board account if you do not already have one. The Accessing Scores for the SAT Suite of Assessments flyer for students is available on the collegeboard.org/colorado to help students access their scores. 
  2. The “forgot username” and “forgot password” links can be used to recover account information if a student has forgotten their login credentials or if they are unsure whether or not they already have an account.

Please note: Although most scores will be released according to the schedule above, some scores will be released later for reasons that may include participation in the accommodated testing window, makeup testing, late receipt of answer sheets, missing information on the answer sheet, or other exception conditions that require additional attention.

Matching College Board Student Accounts and Registration for Students without Scores

If a student is signed into his/her College Board account but doesn’t see the score after May 15th, and does not fall into one of the above reasons for not receiving a score, it means College Board was not able to link the student’s score report and account automatically. For security reasons, the student must verify additional information before College Board can display his/her scores. For SAT and PSAT, the student will need his/her the State Assigned Student ID (SASID) number located in Infinite Campus that was used to pre-identify the student.

To match their test score to their student account, the student will:

  1. Go tohttps://studentscores.collegeboard.org/viewscore
  2. Scroll down and click Matching Tool.
  3. Review personal information.
  4. If any information is incorrect, click Update to revise. (Students will be prompted to re-enter their password.)
  5. If the information is correct, click Get My Scores.
  6. The student will have to select the following options:
    • I can supply my student ID (using the State Assigned Student ID (SASID) used to pre-identify the student at test registration)
  1. Click Get My Scores

There may still be cases in which a student is not able to view their scores using the steps above because the information provided is too different or the scores have not yet been finalized. If students are still unable to view their scores after completing the steps above, they should call the College Board’s Reporting Helpline at PSAT: 866.433.7728; SAT: 866.756.7346.

If you need further clarification, please contact Mr. Wooten.
