National Standardized Test Information

The college admission tests are given by two testing agencies, the College Board (CEEB) and the (ACT) American College Testing Program. The College Board is an association of approximately 5,000 colleges, schools, school systems, and education associations throughout the country. The CEEB offers the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT Reasoning Test, SAT subject tests in 15 subject matter areas), and the Advanced Placement program (AP). The PSAT, a two-hour test of verbal and mathematical skills administered in October, previews the SAT Reasoning Test, and serves as the qualifier for the National Merit Scholarship program for juniors. The State of Florida pays for every sophomore to take this exam and we strongly encourage all freshmen and juniors to participate. Since the PSAT does qualify students for scholarships, all juniors are expected to take the exam.

The American College Testing program (ACT) is a private testing agency associated with colleges of varying sizes and types and is used for admission at most colleges in the U.S., as well as qualifying for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program. The ACT, a test for juniors and seniors only, is administered six times a year. The ACT is a three-hour examination which measures the student’s ability in English usage, mathematics, social studies, and natural science. Scores range from 1 to 36 on the ACT.

Students can apply for the SAT Reasoning, SAT Subject Test, and the ACT on-line. The web site for the SAT is www.collegeboard.com and www.actstudent.org for the ACT. Creekside High School’s Code Number is 102308 for the PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test, SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test), the ACT (American College Test), and the AP (Advanced Placement exams).

When taking the SAT or PSAT students can opt to have colleges contact them through Student Search.

Once you opt in, you can expect to receive emails and postal mail from colleges in your neighborhood, state, country or around the world. All of the colleges that you’ll hear from welcome students just like you on their campuses. The colleges may send you:

  • Information on financial aid, scholarships or other ways to make college more affordable.
  • Details on campus life and students services.
  • Overviews of majors, courses and degree options

You can “OPT OUT” any time if you want to discontinue the communication but it may be a great way for students to get information about schools they may otherwise not have known about.
