The College Board, the provider of the SAT Suite of Assessments, provides a number of structures to support students’ and their families’ ability to connect to key opportunities available to them. As such, the College Board gives students and families complete discretion regarding the additional, voluntary information they disclose beyond the minimum needed to register and score our assessments. Prior to testing, students taking these exams will participate in a pre-administration session to:-Complete required student information needed for scoring,-Participate in the optional questionnaire
The required information covers the basics (name, school, state student ID, grade, sex, and date of birth) needed to score your test. If taking the SAT, students also have a chance to choose up to four colleges or scholarship programs to share their SAT scores with for free. Score sends are optional, but we strongly encourage students to share their scores to demonstrate their interest in their chosen schools.
To participate in the optional questionnaire portion of the pre-administration session, students must submit this signed consent form.
The questionnaire asks about you and your interests. This information is used for group reporting, for analysis to ensure the exams are fair for all groups, to connect you with potential colleges or scholarship opportunities, and for research.
A primary benefit of completing the optional questionnaire is to opt in to Student Search Service®, which connects you to college and scholarship opportunities that reflect your interests. If you choose to participate in the optional questionnaire, the data you provide will be added to your College Board student record, even if you choose not to participate in Student Search Service.
