Research on the Impact of Practice

Students who spend time on Official SAT Practice raise their scores between taking the PSAT/NMSQT and the SAT more than students who don’t. A research study—discussed in Delivering Opportunities, a new College Board report on the first full year of the SAT Suite of Assessments—looked at almost 1.1 million SAT test takers in the class of 2017 who also took the PSAT/NMSQT and found that:

  • Students who spent 20 hours on Official SAT Practice gained an average of 115 points between the PSAT/NMSQT and the SAT.
  • Students who spent at least 6 hours on Official SAT Practice gained about 90 points between the two tests.
  • Students who did not use their scores to personalize practice typically gained about 60 points.

The same study examined the effectiveness of Official SAT Practice by subgroup and found that students raised their scores regardless of race/ethnicity, gender, income, or GPA. For example:

  • Students whose parents have a high school diploma or less and who practiced for at least 22 hours gained 130–140 points between the PSAT/NMSQT and the SAT (compared to 50 points for those who didn’t use their scores to personalize practice).
  • Students who scored below 800 on the PSAT/NMSQT and spent at least 20 hours on Official SAT Practice gained about 180 points (compared to 80–90 points for those who didn’t use their scores to personalize practice). These students gained more points than students with higher scores who practiced for just as many hours.
