SAT Parental Consent, Optional Questionnaire
to taking the SAT, there is a two-part pre-administration session:
First, to save time during the actual test administration,
certain information about your child will be provided to the College Board,
(the provider of the SAT) in advance of the SAT. This information covers basic
information such as name, school, state student ID, grade, gender, and date of
birth. In addition, MCPS shares information with College Board regarding
students who qualify for a fee waiver, which is utilized solely for that
purpose and is not otherwise tracked or maintained by College Board.
Second, your child will have the opportunity to participate,
with your consent, in the optional Student Data Questionnaire. The
College Board gives students and families complete discretion regarding any
voluntary information they provide as part of the Student Data Questionnaire.
Information gathered is used for group reporting, for analysis to ensure that
the exams are fair for all groups, to connect your child with potential colleges
or scholarship opportunities, and for research. Read more about the Student
Data Questionnaire below.
