Last week, counselors distributed PSAT score reports to juniors who took the test this past October along with a parent tutorial to take home. PSAT Score Reports contain an access code for a personalized SAT study plan which includes projected SAT score ranges. You can go to www.collegeboard.com/quickstart to access this information. We recommend that you create an account with the College Board if you have not already done so. Establishing this account will also enable on-line registration for SAT tests.
We also placed a video link for how to use your PSAT results in the “Guidance News and Events” section of our website: http://hamilton.ccsct.com/page.cfm?p=1994
With the specific score range, students can do additional research regarding their college search on Naviance. Naviance is a comprehensive website that students can use to make decisions about courses, colleges and careers. The Guidance Office introduced you to Naviance last spring. If you have forgotten your password please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your Counselor. Please note that students and parents have their own separate accounts with differing rights.
PSAT scores have been entered into Naviance which automatically converts them to an estimated SAT score when accessing tools such as Scattergram graphs and “compare me” charts. The GPA that is posted is calculated each semester from the time a student has been enrolled at HWRHS. The GPA we send to colleges will be computed at the end of the junior year.
In addition, please be aware that the school provides an online SAT Prep course through Naviance. Students can access the Prep Me course on their Naviance home page. Students must be logged in to their own student account as it cannot be accessed through a parent account.
The link to access Naviance is located on the HWRHS website in the “For Students” or “For Parents” section in addition to being on the Guidance Department page:
