The PSAT/NMSQT or National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a preliminary version of the SAT.
The SAT is a standardized test that colleges use to evaluate applicants. Over two million students take the SAT every year and it is used by nearly every college in America for evaluating a student’s college preparedness. The ACT is a national college admissions examination that consists of subject area tests in English, Math, Reading, and Science.
The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) Early Assessment Program (EAP) in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics results may be used to determine your readiness to take college-level courses before you enroll in a California State University (CSU) or a California Community College (CCC).
