Audrey Grindatti, Reporter

On Wednesday, October 13th, juniors had the opportunity to take the PSAT. It was held in the North Campus West Gym. The testing started at 7:30 am and went until 11:30 in the afternoon. 

 

The PSAT is a way for students to see how a standardized test works and can be used as an indicator or trial run for other tests like the SAT and ACT. 

 

An email sent out by North Campus Associate Principal Becky Gordon on Tuesday October 12th addressed that there would be no bells for a portion of the school day on Wednesday. 

 

Due to students taking the test, the bells at North Campus were turned off first through sixth period, and resumed for periods seven through ten. 

 

Students who chose to take the PSAT, were excused from their classes during the test. 

 

Director of Learning Sue Casetta sent an email to staff regarding PSAT attendance, she said that the students were accounted for and it will show in skyward as “School Related-Test Exempt.” 

 

Senior Anna Tweeden said, “I’m really glad I took the PSAT when I was a junior because I feel like it really helped me to get a good idea of what standardized testing is like before taking the ACT.”
