About SAT Program Tests


The SAT
The SAT is more than just a test that measures what you learned in high school; it is an essential passport for your college admission journey. The SAT is what colleges want to showcase your skills and potential. Originally developed to increase access to college for all students, the SAT is the most widely used admission test among colleges and universities. It is offered at least seven times a year in the United States and U.S. territories, and six times a year internationally. Here is an overview of the content and timing of the SAT:

SAT Subject Tests


The SAT Subject Tests give you an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and showcase achievement in specific subject areas. By including these tests in your application portfolio, you can help to differentiate yourself and provide a more complete picture about your interests. Some schools require or recommend SAT Subject Tests as part of the admission process to assess a students academic preparation for college. Some schools use them for placement or to advise a student in picking course subjects and levels. Depending on the score received and the colleges policies, a student may be able to place out of a beginner class or satisfy a basic requirement in certain subjects.

SAT Subject Tests are one-hour tests in Literature, U.S. History, World History, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Spanish, French, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, German, Italian, Latin and Modern Hebrew.

Receiving Scores
Your SAT score report contains the six most recent SAT and six most recent SAT Subject Test scores. Most, but not all, scores will be reported online several weeks after the test date. On the score release date, which is given online, log on to your online account to view your scores easily. (You can also call Customer Service for an additional fee, which is listed in the back of this booklet.) A full score report will be available to you online soon after scores are released. If you register by paper, your score report will also be mailed to you unless you indicate through your online account that you prefer not to receive a paper copy. You can also request a paper report when you register online.

Practice and Retesting


On average, students who take the SAT a second time increase their combined reading, mathematics and writing scores by approximately 42 points. To put your best foot forward, you should read widely, write as much as possible, take challenging courses and practice for test day using our free or low-cost materials online and available from your counselor.

Whats the Best Way to Register?


Registering online is the fastest and easiest way to register. Go to sat.collegeboard.org/register, or ask your counselor for the two online flyers about the SAT and SAT Subject Tests. These two flyers have all the information you need to locate and use online services and information from the SAT Program. Registering online lets you: Know immediately what center is available for you, before you pay for your registration. Have 24-hour access to your Admission Ticket to print for test day. Easily order score reports and use Score Choice to select scores to send from prior test dates. Special Instructions for Adult Test-Takers Test-takers who are 21 years of age or older as of the day of the test, as indicated on their valid ID are considered adult test-takers. Adult test-takers: Must present a current, official government-issued ID or a current, valid passport with recognizable photograph in order to be admitted to the test center. No other form of identification will be accepted. (For other restrictions that may apply, see page 24.) Are not permitted to test as standbys. May not make test-day changes of any kind.

Although every effort will be made to make testing available to standbys, we cannot guarantee that space or materials (including blank Registration Forms) will be available.

What Is Student Search Service?


Student Search Service is a free service that allows you to introduce yourself to colleges. Colleges, universities and participating scholarship and/or nonprofit educational opportunity programs may identify you based on the information you supply on the Registration Form and in the SAT Questionnaire. By saying yes to Student Search Service, you agree to release information about yourself, which includes your name, address, e-mail address, gender, birth date, school, grade level, intended college major and ethnicity. Participating institutions will then provide you with materials about educational opportunities and financial aid. Student Search Service does not report your course grades, test scores, phone numbers or social security number to these organizations, but organizations may request student information based on criteria such as score range, geographical location or interests.

Important Information about Unsolicited Calls Regarding Test Prep While the College Board recommends that students take advantage of our free and low-cost practice tools in order to help them do their best on test day, it is our strict policy to NOT sell student information to test-preparation companies, nor are such companies affiliated with the College Board. We recommend the following precautions if students receive unsolicited calls from persons identifying themselves as belonging to a test-preparation company: Never give credit card information Dont commit to a purchase regardless of the callers highpressure tactics Get the companys contact information and the name of the caller; ask for a call-back number Contact your local consumer affairs office, Better Business Bureau and/or the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) if the company continues to make unsolicited phone calls To learn more about our Student Search Service policy, go to www.collegeboard.org/sss/help/policiesandguidelines/ authorizedusage/index.html.

ThePaperRegistrationGuide 15

Fee Waivers
Fee waivers are available for low-income, college-aspiring high school students who meet the eligibility guidelines. If you are a high school student in the United States or U.S. territories, you can ask your school counselor whether you are financially eligible for a fee waiver to cover the test fees. American citizens residing outside the United States may also be eligible for fee waivers. More information about eligibility is provided at sat.collegeboard.org and in the guide to SAT Program fee waivers available from your counselor. Up to two fee waivers can be used for SAT Subject Tests in grades nine through 12, and up to two fee waivers can be used for the SAT in grades 11 and 12.

Importantnotesaboutusingfeewaivers:

Fee waivers cannot be used after the regular deadline, except for the October test. Fee waivers cannot be used for standby registration at any time. Once you use a fee waiver, it cannot be reused. If you miss the test you registered for, you can transfer to a later date, but you will be charged the change fee. You are entitled to a maximum of four flexible score reports that you can use at any time before graduating high school. The number of report credits you have left will be displayed online when you order reports. You can also call Customer Service to determine your remaining credits. If you are eligible for a fee waiver, but didnt actually register with one, you can still order flexible score reports. Request a fee waiver from your counselor and use the fee-waiver code to order reports.

Note: The College Boards fee-waiver program is intended to help students for whom a test fee would be a barrier to college and would not replace third-party initiatives where they are available.

Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD)


If you have a documented disability, you may be eligible for accommodations on SAT Program tests. Arrangements can be made if you need adjustments to the test setting, such as wheelchair accessibility or seating in which you can lip read, or if you need other accommodations such as a printed copy of spoken directions, extended time, or access to snacks or medicine due to a medical condition. To receive test accommodations, you need to apply for and receive College Board approval.

Applying for Accommodations

Most students submit a request for accommodations with the assistance of their school. Your school can request accommodations by using SSD Online. If you choose to request accommodations without the participation of your school, you should complete a Student Eligibility Form, which is available from your counselor or by calling the SSD office. (See the inside front cover.) - Note SAT and the date you plan to take the test(s) on the eligibility form. - In certain situations, including all requests for computers, you may need to provide documentation of your disability. Submit the request as early as possible to allow sufficient time to process your application. It is recommended that you submit the form in the spring before your first College Board test (PSAT/NMSQT, AP or SAT). See the SSD website for specific deadlines for each test. - Mail it in the College Board SSD Program envelope provided. Where required, include appropriate documentation. - Keep a copy of the completed request and submitted documentation for your records (you must submit the original form, however). Once approved for testing accommodations on College Board tests, you do not need to apply for accommodations again if you take another College Board test. However, if you move to a new school after you have been approved for accommodations, your new school will need to confirm your continued eligibility, and in some cases you may need to provide documentation.

Ask your counselor for more information about accommodations and how to apply for them, or visit www.collegeboard.org/ssdstudent.

ThePaperRegistrationGuide 17

Registering for the SAT with Accommodations


Students who have already been approved for accommodations do not need to register by paper. If you prefer to submit a paper form, do so as follows: Include a copy of your Eligibility Approval Letter in the envelope with your SAT Registration Form.

If you do not have your letter, include a note with your name, eligibility code, school name and school code. Your SSD Coordinator can look up your SSD code online as well as print a copy of your Eligibilty Approval Letter, or you can call the SSD office to obtain it.

Note: If you are eligible for accommodations that require testing in school instead of a test center, the QAS is available for the May administration only. How Do I Register If I Dont Have Approved Accommodations? Apply for accommodations as soon as possible, following the instructions above. Please note the following: - Eligibility application deadlines are earlier than the SAT registration deadlines. - Eligibility applications that require documentation review must be received with complete documentation by the SSD office at least seven weeks before the test date. Submit a paper SAT Registration Form: - Use the registration envelope included with this guide and enclose your payment with your SAT Registration Form. - Mail your form and payment by the registration deadline. How Do I Change My Registration Once I Receive Approval? If you receive an Eligibility Approval Letter after registering but at least two weeks before the test date, your registration will be updated automatically. If you do not receive an admission ticket that shows your accommodations by one week before the test, call the SSD office to confirm that your registration has been updated.

18

If you receive an Eligibility Approval Letter less than two weeks before the test date, you can call the SSD office to try to change your registration; however, sometimes changes requested less than two weeks before test day cannot be made for that date. If that is the case: - You can transfer to a later date so that you can test with accommodations (see next section). - Its possible that enough materials and space will be available for you to take the test with your approved accommodations, as long as you are not approved to use nonstandard formats or equipment that is only supplied for specific testers. Bring a copy of your Eligibility Approval Letter along with your photo ID and Admission Ticket to the test center. - You can test without the approved accommodations, but remember that you can only cancel scores immediately after the test. (See page 23.)

Temporary Physical and Medical Conditions


If you have a temporary medical condition that does not constitute a disability, such as a broken arm, you should transfer your registration to a later test date. If you are a graduating senior and must report scores to meet a college application deadline, or if you are taking an SAT Subject Test for a course in which you are currently enrolled, ask your counselor to contact the College Board SSD office to see if temporary assistance can be provided.

Your Admission Ticket


Once you have registered for the SAT or SAT Subject Tests, you will be issued an Admission Ticket. Anyone who provides an e-mail address will be e-mailed an Admission Ticket. You can still request a paper ticket by filling in the oval under Item 15 on the form marked I would like to also receive a paper ticket.

If you registered by mail or phone without providing an e-mail address, or if you requested a paper ticket as noted above: - A paper ticket will be mailed to you. - If your ticket has not arrived two weeks before the test date, call Customer Service to ask for your registration number, which will allow you to print a Web ticket from sat.collegeboard.org.

If you still do not have a ticket for test day, report to the test center with proper photo identification. You can take the test if the supervisor has a record of your registration. If the supervisor has not been notified, you may be able to test as a standby if space, materials and staff are available. If you are able to test as a standby and can verify afterward that you were registered, you may request a refund for any additional fees paid.

If you were not able to test and can verify afterward that you were registered, you may request a free transfer to another test date or a full refund.

Important Test Day Reminders

Follow the guidelines for marking answers: - Use a No. 2 pencil and a soft eraser. Do not use a pen or mechanical pencil. An essay written in pen will not scan and will receive a score of zero. - Make sure you fill in the entire circle darkly and completely. - If you change your response, erase as completely as possible. - If you start an SAT Subject Test and decide not to complete it, you should cancel your scores by completing a cancellation form. Do not erase all your answers. Use a watch to time yourself no timers or alarms are allowed, as they distract other test-takers. Your test book may have a different order of sections than those of the students sitting next to you. For example, your second section may have mathematics questions, while your neighbors books may have writing or reading questions. Do not skip sections. Doing so could result in score cancellation and/or delays. You must store your snacks out of sight in your backpack or a paper bag. Snacks may be consumed only during breaks. You are responsible for bringing equipment in good working order. Test center staff will not have extra batteries, calculators, CD players or earphones. You will not be able to share equipment with another test-taker. See Getting Ready for the SAT or Getting Ready for the SAT Subject Tests or go online for information about calculators and CD players. Keep your ID with you if you leave the test room.

Important Points About Canceling Scores

The scores from all tests taken that day will automatically be canceled. You cannot cancel individual tests except in the case of equipment failure. Your signature is required to cancel scores. You can cancel your scores by mail or fax. E-mail or phone requests cannot be accepted.

Note: Unless you cancel your scores, they remain on your record, even if you decide not to send them to any colleges or programs. Canceling requests to have score reports sent is not the same as canceling your scores.

ThePaperRegistrationGuide 23

24

Acceptable Equipment
Bring backup equipment on test day if you can: you may save yourself from having to cancel your test. That way, if your calculator or CD player malfunctions before or during the test, you can raise your hand and tell the test supervisor, then switch to your backup equipment and continue to test.

Using calculators For mathematics questions, we encourage you to: Know how and when to use a calculator

Use a calculator with which you are familiar Use a scientific or, even better, a graphing calculator

Every question on the mathematics section of the SAT can be solved without a calculator, but we encourage you to use a scientific or graphing calculator on some questions. Some questions on the SAT Subject Tests in Mathematics Levels 1 and 2 cannot be solved without a scientific or graphing calculator. We recommend the use of a graphing calculator over a scientific calculator. You are not required to clear the memory of your calculator before testing.

Restrictions on Calculator Use Calculators can only be used on mathematics questions you must put your calculator away when working on reading and writing sections of the SAT or on any SAT Subject Tests other than Mathematics Levels 1 and 2. The following calculators are not permitted: A laptop or a portable/handheld computer

Electronic writing pad or pen-input/stylus-driven device (e.g., Palm, PDAs, Casio ClassPad 300) Note: The Sharp EL-9600 may be used without the stylus. Pocket organizer Cell phone calculator Calculator that has QWERTY (typewriter-like) keypad (e.g., TI-92 Plus, Voyage 200) Calculator that uses an electrical outlet, makes noise or has a paper tape

Using CD Players Portable, battery-operated CD players are required for Language with Listening Subject Tests (November only). Acceptable players should display the industry standard label shown below.

CD players with recording or duplicating capability are not permitted. What If My Equipment Fails? If your calculator fails while you are taking the SAT, you can continue to test, or you can cancel your scores. You will have to cancel your entire test score you cannot cancel just the mathematics section. If your calculator or CD player fails while you
ThePaperRegistrationGuide 25

are taking an SAT Subject Test, you can cancel the score for just that one test as long as you notify the test room supervisor during the test. In all other cases, if you wish to cancel one test, you must cancel all tests you take during a single administration.

Important Information About Makeup Testing


The following policies apply to makeup testing: Only registered students can take a makeup test. Students who have already tested during the same administration may not use a makeup administration to retest or to take a different SAT Program test.

You may test only at the center for which you are registered or authorized. You may only take tests that you registered to take on the original date. You must take the entire SAT or SAT Subject Test at a makeup administration. Sunday testing is offered for religious reasons only, not for makeup testing. Access to essays from makeup administrations may be subject to several weeks delay.

How Do I Order Additional Score Reports?


You can order score reports at any time after you test (see inside back cover for fees). The easiest way to order score reports is through your online account. If you need to order by mail, you or your counselor can download and print an Additional Score Report Order form. Sending Older Scores A student can also order older test scores. These are test scores for all students who have been out of high school for at least one year and who have not tested for one or more years. Go to www.collegeboard.org/sat-sending-scores for more information.

Completing the SAT Questionnaire


Item 22 on Side 2 of the paper Registration Form consists of 42 questions about you, your high school experiences and your thoughts about college.

Why Should I Answer the Questionnaire?

Your responses give your counselors and college admission officers information to use in assisting you with making future plans. The more information you provide, the more they can assist you. Your responses provide information to the College Board that helps us ensure that the SAT is a fair and accurate test for all students. Your answers to some questions (the questionnaire identifies which ones) will not appear on your score report but will be used by the College Board for research and planning.

Confidentiality Institutions that receive your SAT scores and related data are required to maintain confidentiality of data and to adhere to College Board guidelines for using information. Your answers to Items 39 and 40 are not shared with institutions. Do I Need to Answer It Each Time I Register? If you register for the SAT again, you do not need to re-enter all the questionnaire information. Updating Your Data Be sure to update any responses that may have changed. When updating, answer the entire question your new answer will replace the old one. For example, if you have taken calculus since the last time you registered for the SAT, you should list all math courses you have completed, including calculus. Note: You can update your SAT Questionnaire anytime online or by calling Customer Service. What If a Question Doesnt Apply to Me? Most of the questions are addressed to students still in secondary school. If you are no longer in school, answer these questions as well as you can or leave them blank.

Students in school systems outside the United States may find that Items 7, 8, 18 and 42 do not apply to them. Please answer each question as well as you can, or leave it blank.

Important Information for Test-Takers


Privacy Policy
The College Board recognizes the importance of protecting your privacy rights. You will be asked to provide your name, the high school you attend and other personally identifying information during the registration process. If you provide your high school information at the time of registration, your scores and registration information will be made available to your high school so your counselor can better help you plan for the test and for college. You will have the option to disclose your information for scholarship purposes, Student Search Service, score reporting and receiving communications from the College Board. The College Board employs an array of measures, in accordance with applicable laws and the policies and guidelines set forth herein, to manage and safeguard personal information that you provide to the College Board. Except as described above; described in the specific sections of this publication; or to share with our operational partners for the sole purpose of administering testing services, and producing and generating student score reports; the information that you provide to the College Board will not be sold, rented, loaned or otherwise shared. For personal information you provide online, please also see the College Boards online privacy policy at www.collegeboard.org/html/privacy001.html. See page 9 for information regarding unsolicited calls from test-preparation companies. The College Board will disclose scores to a students parent or guardian if the parent or guardian is able to supply to the College Board the required authentication information, unless the College Board determines in its sole discretion that its records on the student contain a court order, state statute, or legally binding document relating to matters such as divorce, separation or custody that restricts the parents or guardians access to the students scores. The College Board will not independently investigate whether a court order, state statute, or legally binding document exists other than in its records; rather, relevant documents and information must be submitted to the College Board. The College Board reserves the right to request additional documents and information in connection with determining whether or not to disclose scores to a parent or guardian.

Our receipt of your payment check is your authorization for us to collect the amount of the check electronically by sending the check amount along with the check, routing and transit account numbers to your bank. Your bank account may be debited as early as the same day we receive your payment. The original check will be destroyed, and an image will be maintained in our records.

Grounds for Score Cancellation


Test Security Issues As the College Board vendor, Educational Testing Service ensures that the SAT is fairly administered on test day. The College Board and ETS strive to report scores that accurately reflect the performance of every test-taker. Accordingly, ETS standards and procedures for administering tests have two primary goals: give all test-takers equivalent opportunities to demonstrate their abilities, and prevent any test-taker from gaining an unfair advantage over others. To promote these objectives, ETS reserves the right to dismiss test-takers, decline to score any test, and/or cancel any test scores when, in its judgment, as applicable, a testing irregularity occurs, there is an

36

apparent discrepancy in a test-takers identification, a test-taker engages in misconduct, or the score is invalid for another reason, including, but not limited to, discrepant handwriting or plagiarism. Review of scores by ETS is confidential. When, for any of these reasons, ETS cancels a test score that has already been reported, it notifies score recipients that the score was canceled, but it does not disclose the reason for cancellation unless authorized to do so by the test-taker, and in certain cases that affect a group of test-takers. Testing irregularities Testing irregularities refer to problems with the administration of a test. When they occur, they may affect an individual or groups of test-takers. Such problems include, without limitation, administrative errors (e.g., improper timing, improper seating, defective materials and defective equipment), improper access to test content or test center, and other disruptions of test administrations (e.g., natural disasters and other emergencies). When testing irregularities occur, ETS may decline to score the test, or cancel the test score. When it is appropriate to do so, ETS gives affected test-takers the opportunity to take the test again as soon as possible, without charge. Identification Discrepancies When, in ETSs or test center personnels judgment, there is a discrepancy in a test-takers identification, the test-taker may be denied admission to or dismissed from the test center; in addition, ETS may decline to score the test, or immediately cancel the test score. Misconduct When ETS or test center personnel find that there is misconduct in connection with a test, the test-taker may be dismissed from the test center, or ETS may decline to score the test or may cancel the test score. Repeated minor infractions during the test may result in dismissal from the test center or score cancellation. Misconduct includes, but is not limited to: taking any test questions or essay topics from the testing room, including through memorization, giving them to anyone else, or discussing them with anyone else through any means, including, but not limited to, e-mail, text messages or the Internet obtaining improper access to the test, a part of the test or information about the test referring to, looking through or working on any test, or test section, other than during the testing period for that test or test section using any prohibited aids such as, but not limited to, cell phones, other oral or written communication devices, and reference books, etc., in connection with the test, including during breaks consuming food or drink in unauthorized areas leaving the test room without permission leaving the building at any time during the test administration, including during breaks attempting in any manner to remove from the test room any part of a test book or any notes relating to the test attempting to give or receive assistance. Discussion or sharing of test content during the test administration, during breaks or after the test, is prohibited. Communication with other test-takers in any form is not permitted during the test administration. attempting to take the test for someone else using a telephone or cell phone or any other prohibited digital and/or electronic device without permission of the test center staff creating a disturbance or failing to follow instructions given by test center staff failing to follow any of the test administration regulations contained in this registration guide, in other registration materials or given by the test supervisor

ThePaperRegistrationGuide 37

Invalid Scores ETS may also cancel scores if it judges that there is substantial evidence that they are invalid for any other reason. Evidence of invalid scores may include, without limitation, plagiarism, discrepant handwriting, unusual answer patterns, inconsistent performance on different parts of the test, text that is similar to that in other essays, paraphrasing of text from published sources and essays that do not reflect the independent composition the test is seeking to measure. Before canceling scores pursuant to this paragraph entitled Invalid Scores, ETS notifies the test-taker in writing about the delay in reporting and its concerns, gives the test-taker an opportunity to submit information that addresses the concerns, considers any such information submitted and offers the test-taker a choice of options. The options include voluntary score cancellation, a free retest or arbitration in accordance with ETSs standard Arbitration Agreement. In addition, when ETS notifies the test-taker about concerns, the test-taker is sent a copy of the booklet Why and How Educational Testing Service Questions Test Scores, which explains this process in greater detail. (Any test-taker may request a copy of this booklet at any time.) Note: The retest option is not available outside the United States and Canada. The arbitration option is available only for tests administered in the United States.

Test Security and Fairness


The SAT Programs policies for testing are designed to give every student an equal opportunity to demonstrate college readiness and to prevent anyone from gaining an unfair advantage. Here are some important things that you should know when you take an SAT Program test: Test materials are secured before, during and after the test so that no unauthorized person has access to questions before taking the test. Timing of each section is strictly scheduled. You cannot skip ahead or go back to a previous section while taking the test. No one should see the questions except you while you are taking the test. Sharing of test questions with others may enable them to attain inappropriately higher scores, thus decreasing the value of your score. Cell phone use is prohibited; students are strongly encouraged not to bring cell phones to the test center. If your phone makes noise, or you are seen using it at any time (including breaks), you will be dismissed immediately, your scores will be canceled and the device may be confiscated and its contents, inspected. This policy also applies to any other prohibited digital and/or electronic device such as a BlackBerry, pager, PDA, camera or other photographic equipment, or a separate timer of any kind. We strongly advise you not to bring them. Prohibited electronic devices may be subject to collection, and the College Board will not be responsible for lost, stolen or damaged devices. Sharing essay questions or multiple-choice questions with anyone for any reason is a violation of test fairness policy. Never give questions to others (including your teachers) or discuss them by any means, including, but not limited to, e-mail, text messages, the Internet or in any other form of communication. Discussing the essay question (but not multiple-choice questions) is permissible after it is available online. If your essay does not reflect your original and individual work, all of your test scores may be canceled. You may not consult textbooks, other people, electronic devices or any other resources during breaks. Parents and guardians will not be allowed to escort their children to the testing rooms. Students may be tested in the same room as test-takers of all grades and ages. Violation of test security policies may result in score cancellation, and under some circumstances indviduals may be permanently barred from future testing.

38

Cheating Tests are administered under strict supervision and security measures. To report any unusual behavior or suspicion of cheating (for example, someone copying from another test-taker, taking a test for someone else, having access to test questions before the exam, or using notes or unauthorized aids), please contact us by phone at 609-406-5430 between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Eastern/New York Time, by fax at 609-406-9709, or by e-mail at testsecurity@info.collegeboard.org as soon as possible. All information will be held strictly confidential.

Score Reporting
General Information Each time you take an SAT Program test (SAT or SAT Subject Test), the scores are added to your permanent SAT Program record. Most students scores are made available to them online several weeks after the test. A full online score report becomes available soon after scores are released. A paper copy is sent to you by mail if you register by mail and do not have a free College Board online account or if you indicate your preference to continue receiving a paper copy. If you provide your high school information at the time of registration, a copy of your record is sent to your high school and to the colleges and scholarship programs you choose between four and six weeks after the test. Your six most recent SAT and six most recent SAT Subject Test reportable scores are reported to you and to your high school. We keep your full score history on file. We only report the scores to colleges that you select through Score Choice, but we cannot delete scores from your record. If you do not want your test scored at all, request a score cancellation form from the test center supervisor on test day or immediately go online to learn how to cancel them at sat.collegeboard.org/scores. The report you receive and the reports received by colleges and your high school contain scores that have been converted to the College Board 200800 scale for all SAT Program tests. The College Board does not use either your raw score or your reported scaled score by itself or in combination with any other information to predict your individual future academic performance at specific postsecondary institutions. However, the College Board does provide assistance to individual colleges and universities to help them use SAT Program test scores, high school records and other relevant information in making appropriate admission and placement decisions. Test scores are the property of the College Board. The College Board may use scores and information you provide for research purposes, but other than as indicated below or unless legally compelled (for example, subject to a subpoena), no personally identifying information is released without your consent. Delayed Scores Scores can be delayed by various situations; we will notify you if your scores are subject to any unusual delays. If your score report is not available online when expected, you should check back the following week. If you have not received your online report by five weeks after the test date, or your mailed score report by eight weeks, contact Customer Service by phone or e-mail. Score Choice Score Choice is an option that allows you to choose which scores you send to selected colleges for admission purposes as well as scores you send to selected scholarship programs. Please note that different colleges and scholarship programs use SAT scores in different ways. Weve collected SAT score-use practices from every college or scholarship program that chose to provide the requested information in order to help you make an informed choice about the scores you send. Please note: College and scholarship programspecific SAT score use practices referenced in Score Choice materials are based on information provided to us by each participating college or scholarship program. The description of a particular SAT score-use practice in the Score Choice materials might not include every aspect of how a college or scholarship program uses a students score for admission decisions; additionally, SAT score-use practices for a particular college or scholarship program may change periodically and may not be automatically updated in Score Choice. Therefore, we recommend that you check with the college or

ThePaperRegistrationGuide 39

scholarship program to which you are sending SAT scores to confirm its SAT score-use practice. Where you send your scores, and which scores you send there, are important decisions that you should research and consider carefully and discuss with your parents and guidance counselors. While we have made available the information on score-use practices provided to us by participating colleges and scholarship programs to assist you in this process, we are not responsible for the accuracy of the information or the consequences of your decisions. You and your high school will continue to receive reports containing all of your scores. Sending Scores to College and University Systems For certain college and university systems, once you submit your score to one school, other schools within that system will also have access to your score. Please note, however, that if you are applying to more than one school within a college or university system, it is still important for you to send your SAT scores to each individual school. Scholarships Most of the scholarships available from the college and scholarship programs listed in the SAT Code List booklet are restricted to U.S. residents or children of employees of the scholarship sponsors. For more information, contact the colleges and scholarship programs in which you are interested. The SAT Program automatically reports scores to certain U.S. government and state scholarship programs. If you are a citizen of the United States and a resident of Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island or West Virginia, but your current mailing address is outside the United States or you are using an APO/ FPO address, contact the scholarship and guidance programs or governmentsponsored agencies in these states directly for information on how to be included for scholarship selection. You can stop the automatic reporting of your test scores. If you do not want your scores released to the U.S. government or if you attend school or live in one of these states and do not want your scores sent to the state scholarship or guidance program, write to College Board SAT Program, Attention: Confidentiality, P. O. Box 025505, Miami, FL 33102 by no later than the 15th day after the test date, or by Jan. 2, 2012, for Massachusetts (or by the 15th day after the test date if testing after January). State Scholarship Programs If you are from one of the states listed below, your scores will be routinely sent to the states scholarship program unless you tell us otherwise. Scores are sent for all test-takers (except seventh- and eighth-graders, and ninth-graders in Missouri) in Kentucky and Missouri who test between Sept. 1, 2011, and June 30, 2012; for all juniors in Illinois and Pennsylvania who take the test between Sept. 1, 2011, and June 30, 2012; for all seniors in Washington who test between September and December 2011; and for all juniors in Washington who test between January and June 2012. In Alaska, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey and Rhode Island, scores are sent following the junior year and again in the middle of the senior year. In West Virginia and Tennessee, scores are sent for all seniors who tested during high school through January 2012; in West Virginia, scores will also be sent from all students sending scores to a West Virginia institution of higher education. For students who meet certain specific criteria (last name and score range), North Carolina State University may provide a scholarship regardless of your state of residence. Releasing Your Scores to the New York State Scholarship Program The New York State Scholarship Program requires that New York State students who wish to be considered for the Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarships and Regents Scholarships in Cornell University on the basis of their SAT scores take this test before Nov. 1, 2011. The latest SAT administration that meets this deadline is Oct. 1, 2011. The New York State Standardized Testing Law requires that you specifically authorize the sending of all reports. Your SAT scores and other information from your record will be sent to the Scholarship Program if you authorize the release of your scores at the time that you apply for a scholarship. To do that, you must answer yes and sign the score release statement in the scholarship

40

application. Scholarship application forms are sent by the State Education Department to principals of all high schools in New York State in December or January. If you follow these procedures, there is no fee for sending reports to the New York State Scholarship Program. The College Board releases to the New York State Scholarship Program the names, addresses and other identifying information of seniors who registered to take the SAT prior to Nov. 1, 2011, who are New York State residents and who apply for scholarship(s). This procedure facilitates the matching of student files so that scores for all students who authorized their release are sent to the New York State Scholarship Program. If you do not want your name and address released for this purpose, notify College Board SAT Program, NYS Scholarship Program, P. O. Box 025505, Miami, FL 33102. Research and Reporting Your test scores and the background information you provide about yourself (not including your name, street address, social security number or e-mail address) may be used in research or in aggregate reports about groups of students. In some cases for example, if a validity study is done for the college in which you have enrolled all your scores and background information may be included in the study even if you did not request that the SAT Program send your scores to the college. Your individual scores and other information you provide during registration and testing may be reported to your school, district or state for educational and/ or diagnostic purposes. For more information about the guidelines on the uses of College Board test scores and related data, ask your counselor or download Guidelines on the Uses of College Board Test Scores and Related Data from www.collegeboard.org/research. Procedures for Keeping Scores on File Your scores are kept indefinitely, unless you tested before entering the ninth grade. If you test in the seventh or eighth grade, your scores are removed from your file at the end of the year that you tested. If you dont want your scores removed, you must let us know before the end of June of the year you tested. Send a letter that is signed by you and your parents and that provides your identification information, registration number and test date to: The College Board SAT Program, Attention: Talent Search Scores, P. O. Box 025505, Miami, FL 33102. Your test scores and your responses to the SAT Questionnaire are maintained on active file by the SAT Program until June, one year after your class graduates from high school. (If you tested after high school, this information is kept on active file for a full year beyond the year in which you tested.) After that time, these data are placed in an archival file. Test scores can be obtained from the archival file indefinitely, although the College Board cannot guarantee that scores can always be retrieved. Note also that the College Board cannot make updates or changes to archived records. Ordering Scores More Than One Year After Your High School Graduation Scores for students who have been out of high school for at least one year and who have not tested for one or more years can be ordered. To order such older scores, provide your current name and address, sex, date of birth and the year you tested, along with your name and address at that time. See the inside back cover for score sending fee information. The ordering of such older scores is subject to an additional fee to cover the cost of looking up your scores; this fee will be charged whether or not scores can be located. Official score reports sent to colleges five or more years after a test date are accompanied by a message explaining that they may be less valid predictors of college academic performance than more recent scores would be. This message also notifies colleges that for SAT Subject Tests, knowledge of the subject may change given additional study in the area, and scores may become less valid predictors within a shorter time period. Missing Scores If previous scores are missing from your score report, call Customer Service (see inside front cover) or write to: The College Board SAT Program, Attention: Unreported Scores, P.O. Box 025505, Miami, FL 33102. Provide identification information, test dates and previous score recipients to which you want updated reports sent. Reports will be sent at no charge.

ThePaperRegistrationGuide 41

Lost Answer Sheets In very rare instances, a shipment of answer sheets may be lost or damaged in transit to our scoring facilities, making it impossible for the tests to be scored. After an exhaustive effort to locate a missing shipment, the SAT Program typically will offer several options to affected students: an opportunity to retake the tests at no charge at a scheduled makeup with expedited delivery of scores to all designated institutions, a free transfer to a later published test date or a full refund of all testing fees.

Additional Information for Students Testing in California and New York State
The California Education Code requires that you be given certain information concerning the purposes of the tests, property rights of the test subject and test agency to the test scores, procedures for releasing score reports, and score interpretation. Statistical information related to the use of test scores in predicting future grade point averages must be provided to test-takers prior to the administration of the test or coinciding with the initial reporting of test scores. The New York State Standardized Testing Law requires that certain information concerning the purposes of the test, property rights of the test-taker and test agency to the test scores, test fairness and equity, procedures for releasing score reports and for reviewing challenges about test questions, and score interpretation be provided to test-takers along with the Registration Form or score report. The information for both California and New York State test-takers is furnished in this Paper Registration Guide for the SAT and SAT Subject Tests and in the material included with score reports. Complete descriptions of the content of the tests, along with information on test preparation and sample questions, are provided in the booklets Getting Ready for the SAT and Getting Ready for the SAT Subject Tests, which are available without charge from school offices for students who plan to register for these tests. See how to request SAT Answer Reporting Services on page 13. In addition, students who took the SAT in California in December 2011 can review the test questions under secure conditions at the ETS Western Field Office in Concord, Calif., by calling 925-808-2000. Predicting College Grades The primary purpose of the SAT is to provide information to college admission staff that will help them to evaluate a students application. The College Board recommends that score recipients use scores in combination with other information such as grades and courses taken in determining admission. Results of research conducted using data from 110 colleges show that SAT test scores, in combination with a students high school grade point average, predict college freshman GPA more accurately than either SAT scores or high school GPA alone. For all college freshmen in the study (N=151,316), the predictive validity of an optimally weighted combination of SAT scores and high school GPA is 0.62. The correlation between the reading section score and freshman GPA is 0.50, between the math score and freshman GPA is 0.49, and between the writing section score and freshman GPA is 0.53. For all three sections (reading, mathematics and writing), the correlation with freshman GPA is 0.53, while the correlation between high school GPA and freshman GPA is 0.54. The combination of scores and high school GPA raised the correlation 0.09 over scores alone, and 0.08 over high school GPA. For males, the correlation between the combination of scores and high school GPA with freshman GPA is 0.59, an increase of 0.09 over scores alone and 0.07 over high school GPA. For females, the correlation between the combination of scores and high school GPA with freshman GPA is 0.65, an increase of 0.07 over scores alone and 0.11 over high school GPA. All correlations are adjusted for restriction of range so that the full range of scores and high school GPA are the same as for the national college-bound seniors cohort. Procedures to Ensure Fairness and Equity All new SAT Program test questions and complete new editions of the tests are reviewed by many individuals, including committees whose members are drawn from all regions of the United States. These reviews help identify and eliminate any wording or content that

42

might be offensive to or inappropriate for particular groups of students based on their race/ethnicity or their gender. Assessment staff ensure that the test as a whole includes references to men and women and individuals from varied racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Statistical procedures are used to identify questions that are harder for a group of students to answer correctly than would be expected from their performance on the test. Relationship of SAT Scores to Family Income The correlation of SAT scores and student-reported family income for two recent years was found to be about 0.30, which is consistent with general research findings on the relationship of educational achievement and family income level. Although average SAT scores tend to be higher for students from higher-income families, students from every income level, as reported on the SAT Questionnaire, obtain the full range of SAT scores. Furthermore, many students from low-income families do well on the test. For seniors who graduated in 2000, one-third of the students with reported family income at or below $30,000 obtained scores above the national average.

Restricted Registrations
As a United States-based corporation, the College Board, along with our representatives overseas, is subject to U.S. economic sanctions, laws and regulations. We are, therefore, prohibited from providing testing services to or accepting registrations from persons in certain countries (such as Iran or Cuba) or persons designated by the U.S. government as Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons. Any payment submitted may have to be placed in a blocked, interest-bearing account at a U.S. financial institution. If payment is not blocked under U.S. law, it will be returned to the registrant. If, however, a payment is blocked under U.S. law, the registrant may contact the U.S. Treasury Departments Office of Foreign Assets Control at treasury.gov/about/organizational-structure/offices/ Pages/Office-of-Foreign-Assets-Control.aspx for more information.

General Notice for Students


1. SAT Program policies are subject to change for test security or other reasons. The SAT Program will attempt to provide adequate prior notice, although circumstances may limit our ability to do so. The College Board will not be responsible for lost, stolen or damaged personal property brought to the test center on test day. If a large-scale incident such as a public health threat or security-related incident interferes with test administration, the College Board may cancel testing for all or a particular group of students. When this occurs, the SAT Program will attempt to provide adequate prior notice, although circumstances may limit our ability to do so. Once determined, we will communicate test cancellations and alternative test dates for affected test-takers. In order to ensure the integrity of the SAT Program, the College Board reserves the right to bar any individual from registering and/or taking the SAT or a Subject Test. To preserve the integrity of the information contained in the Student Search Service database, the College Board reserves the right to bar or to remove, with or without notice, any student from the database.
