Each fall Mansfield ISD provides free college testing opportunities for high school learners. This year we will offer the PSAT National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT NMSQT) to sophomores and juniors, and the PSAT 8/9 to freshmen learners on Wednesday, October 12, 2022.

No additional administrations will be available if your child is unable to test due to unforeseen circumstances.

Why these tests?
The PSAT™ 8/9 is the first test in the SAT Suite of Assessments. It sets a readiness baseline, allowing learners and designers to pinpoint areas for focused practice as learners progress through high school.
The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) is cosponsored by College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC®) and administered for College Board and NMSC by Educational Testing Service (ETS). The PSAT/NMSQT helps learners prepare for the SAT and provides entry to the National Merit® Scholarship Program, an academic competition conducted by NMSC.
