Student Assessment and Research is a department within the Academics Division
Throughout the year, the Student Assessment arm of the department assists schools with all aspects of Broward's assessment program including preparing, administering, and reporting of state-required and district tests.
The Research arm releases briefs, reports, and evaluations that provide knowledge and support to strengthen decision making by the Superintendent, the School Board, and district and school-based administrators.
The Student Assessment and Research department reside in two locations; the Kathleen C. Wright (KCW) building and the Twin Lakes facility.
This memo and the attached appendices summarize student participation and scores from two types of Preliminary SAT tests offered during the years 2016-2017 through 2018-2019: the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), offered to tenth and eleventh grade students, and the Preliminary SAT 8/9 (PSAT 8/9), offered to ninth grade students. Both PSAT administrations provide feedback to students, educators, and parents on reading, writing, and mathematical skills essential for success in college-level coursework.
