Nationally Normed Standardized Tests
Standardized tests are meant to show proof of progress for state reporting requirements. They are not pass/fail tests. The test results show how your student compares nationally to students in the same grade level who took the same test at the same time of year when the test was first normed.
Some states may not necessarily require you to report the test results but only to keep them on file. The test results are posted to your online account at SetonTesting.com and kept securely on file there for your use. You can download them and print them from there and use them as needed for state reporting purposes or to give to school authorities as aids in determining grade placement or curriculum/course development for your child/student. You can refer to www.hslda.org for more details on your state’s testing requirements.

PSAT, SAT and ACT Information
You should be able to obtain registration bulletins from a local high school, community college or a public library. The registration bulletins list the centers and the dates; please check them for the center most convenient for you.
It is important for Juniors (11th graders) to take the PSAT test, as there are scholarship opportunities based on the results. Most notably, the National Merit Scholarship program uses the PSAT as their benchmark. Ask a local high school for registration.
Current SAT and PSAT test dates and other information may be found at http://www.collegeboard.com/testing
Current ACT test information may be found on the ACT Web site at http://www.act.org
The Internet is by far your best source for information on scholarships and financial aid. Putting in key words such as “scholarship,” or “college tuition help” and the like should gain you a wealth of information.
