All 9th (Freshman) and 12th (Seniors) will have a CYBER DAY. Students will work from home on assignments provided through Schoology. More details will be posted in the upcoming weeks on Schoology from teachers and the HS administration.
All 10th graders, and 11th Graders who registered at the end of last year, will have the opportunity to take the PSAT, during school on Wednesday, October 16th.
Non-testing Juniors who did not sign up to take the PSAT will work as a Cyber Day from home and complete the work assigned that day by their teachers. For more details please check Schoology.
Need to Know:
During test administration, students will not be able to access their bags. All cell phones, smart watches, etc. must be turned off and placed in their bag. All bags will be placed outside of each testing room.
Test Time: 7:25 AM – 12:30 PM
Pencils: Students must bring two (2) sharpened #2 pencils
Calculator: The math portion of the PSAT has both a calculator allowed and calculator not allowed section. Students are strongly encouraged to bring a calculator with them for the portion on which it is allowed. Scientific and graphing calculators (like those normally used in their math classes) are allowed. Please check to make sure your child has an appropriate calculator for testing. An extra set of batteries is also a good idea. If a student does not bring a calculator with them, they will still take all portions of the math PSAT. MOT is unable to provide calculators for students that do not bring one.
Arrival – Once testing begins, students cannot be admitted late into the testing room. Please make sure to arrive on time
After testing, students will eat last lunch and then receive further information about the rest of their day.
Test Results: Online scores will be available in January.
