PSAT Testing Option – October 15th

This year, Dayton Christian will be offering all Sophomores and Juniors the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT on

Saturday, October 15th at 8:30 AM at the school.

The PSAT is a two-hour test given once a year in October. Many students take the PSAT, not only as preparation for the SAT taken in senior year and widely used as a major criterion for college admissions, but also to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Competition. To take part, please complete the registration form and submit payment to the Guidance Office no later than Monday, August 29th.

                                                        PSAT REGISTRATION

As with the SAT, the PSAT has separate math and verbal sections and a third section testing English grammar. Each subject is scored on a scale of 20 to 80 and these scores are combined to create the National Merit Scholarship selection index.

Almost all students take the PSAT during their junior year, but many students take the PSAT when they are sophomores to get the feel of the test. However, it is only the scores from the PSAT taken in your junior year that are considered for the National Merit Scholarship competition.

This scholarship competition awards approximately 8,200 scholarships annually. The selection process starts with the choosing of National Merit Scholarship Semi-Finalists and Commended Scholars. Cutoffs vary from state to state but typically Semi-Finalists score in the top one percent of students in their state and Commended Scholars between the top one to four percent. Most of the approximately 16,000 Semi-Finalists become Finalists, and half of those ultimately receive National Merit Scholarships.

The most common reasons for taking the PSAT/NMSQT are:

  • To receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study. You can then focus your preparation on those areas that could most benefit from additional study or practice.
  • To see how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college.
  • To enter the competition for scholarships from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (grade 11).
  • To help prepare for the SAT. You can become familiar with the kinds of questions and the exact directions you will see on the SAT.
  • To receive information from colleges when you check “yes” to Student Search Service.

Students need to bring an approved calculator and several No. 2 pencils to testing. No Cell phones allowed

A couple of weeks ago parents should have received a notice via email announcing the launch of Dayton Christian’s new learning management system, DC Connect.  This is a system that is not only replacing NetClassroom for grade retrieval  but will serve as a portal for communication, homework, attendance, conduct, and electronic assignment submission.

Every parent and student has their own unique user id and account.

This process should be completed once for each individual user.

*****It is very important to note that all students must obtain their user ID and password reset using their parent’s email address the first time.  Once they log in they may update the profile with their own personal email. ******
