MAINE HIGH SCHOOL ASSESSMENT (including The Maine SAT Initiative)
The official MHSA SAT administration date for the 2012 -’13 school year is Saturday, May 4, 2013.
The MHSA Science Tests must be administered during a two-week window which begins Monday, March 25th and closes Friday, April 5, 2013.
Beginning with the spring administration in 2006, all Maine high school juniors, including all students in their 3rd year of high school, will be required to take SAT tests in critical reading, writing, and mathematics. This new policy encourages all Maine students to engage in instruction and assessment that is intended to raise expectations and to increase readiness for college or other post secondary opportunities; is consistent with the high expectations for student achievement expressed in Maine’s Learning Results; and supports the emerging PreK-16 College Ready Initiative already underway as a joint effort of the University System and the Maine Department of Education. These initiatives are essential to ensure that Maine students are as well prepared as possible to succeed in our increasingly complex state, national and world economy.
A program of preparation and assessment that includes both Preliminary SAT (PSAT) and SAT tests is being made available to all Maine students. Students will receive standard SAT reports and official scores that they may use as they apply to colleges both in Maine and nationally. All colleges using SAT results in their admission process will accept the scores. In addition to the student reports, school administrative units will receive reports of student performance necessary to meet state and federal requirements.
