Assessment

SAT

The SAT School Day is the state’s general summative assessment for high school. It is administered on paper to all grade 11 students except those students taking the West Virginia Alternate Summative Assessment. The SAT School Day is given during a regular school day in the spring of each year. This year, the SAT School Day will be given on April 13, 2021 with the make up testing day on April 27, 2021. The SAT is a nationally recognized college- and career-readiness assessment administered by the College Board. It is accepted at colleges and universities throughout West Virginia and the nation for both college admissions and placement. It also can be used to qualify for the Promise Scholarship. Students have access to practice SAT tests through Khan Academy, which also provides West Virginia educators and students access to online content and resources to help prepare students for taking the SAT School Day.
 
SAT School Day allows Cabell County Schools the opportunity to offer the SAT to juniors in school and on a weekday which expands students' access to a globally recognized college admission test that is accepted at all U.S. colleges.
