Nationally Normed College Entrance Practice Test

ORS 329.488 directs ODE to provide a statewide opportunity for Oregon's 10th graders to access a nationally-normed college entrance practice exam. In previous years, ODE has contracted with the College Board for the PSAT administration; however, ODE's contract with the College Board expired on June 30, 2020 and cannot be renewed. The State Board of Education suspended this requirement for the 2020-21 school year given the impact of the pandemic. Consistent with state procurement requirements, ODE is now in the process of developing a Request for Proposals (RFP) that will result in a new contract. The process will be open and competitive and will take several months to complete. The terms set forth will require that test administration, including the date/time in which the assessment is provided in Oregon, will be defined by ODE to help ensure, to the degree that it is feasible, that all students can access this opportunity if they choose.

Please contact Dan Farley, Director of Assessment, with any questions, recommendations, or concerns.
