Students in grades 8-11 can utilize Khan Academy this summer to prepare for next year’s PSAT, SAT
To help prepare students for the SAT Suite of Assessments given in the fall and spring, Broken Arrow Public Schools is encouraging students/parents to utilize the Khan Academy, an official SAT practice website, this summer.
“The Khan Academy offers FREE practice exercises, instructional videos and a personalized learning dashboard for students to study for these assessments at their own pace,” said District Test Coordinator Diana Bjornson. “By creating personalized accounts, students can focus on areas that need improvement or that the student wants advancement. We are excited to be able to provide resources for our students so they experience academic growth that prepares them for postsecondary opportunities.”
Every year in October, students in grades 8 and 9 take the PSAT 8/9, and sophomores are given the PSAT/NMSQT assessment. The PSAT/NMSQT is an optional assessment for juniors. During the spring semester, the SAT is given to all students in the 11th grade for free. However, students can register online for the SAT at their expense anytime duriing their high school career.
To create an account with Khan Academy, visit Khan Academy. Students ages 13 and over will need their own personal email address (not a school email), their date of birth, a username and unique password. Students under the age of 13 will need their date of birth, their parent’s email address, a username and password.
Parents with students under the age of 13 will receive an email from Khan Academy to approve the account within seven days of creation. If the account is not approved, it will be deleted.
