Calculator Policy

Calculators are permitted for one of the math sections of the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 8/9. Students must bring their own; WSHS does not provide calculators to students on PSAT day. Most graphing, scientific, and four-function calculators are permitted. Calculators that connect to the internet and/or have a QWERTY keyboard are not permitted. Check the College Board PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 8/9 website for details. 

Pre-Survey Opt-out

At the beginning of the PSAT, students are presented with a voluntary pre-survey that asks questions about a variety of topics. Parents have the opportunity to preview the survey administered at the beginning of the PSAT, and to opt out, if they choose to do so. The deadline for returning the opt-out form was September 28, 2018. If you chose to opt your student out of the pre-survey, please be sure your student knows s/heshould not answer the pre-survey questions at the beginning of the test.
