AP Testing

AP classes are rigorous academic courses designed for students who are college bound. There is no placement test for AP. Students self-select these courses and should be prepared to work at a college-level pace. At the end of the course, the student is expected to take the AP exam which is managed by College Board.

AP exams are highly recognized by colleges and universities with regard to a student's preparation for the demands of college courses. AP exams present an opportunity for college credit and/or higher placement in college courses. Each college decides which AP exam grades it will accept for credit or placement.

Information about exam dates and fees can be found on the College Board website.

Smarter Balanced Testing

The Smarter Balanced assessment system provides educators, students and parents meaningful results with actionable data to help students succeed. The assessment is aligned to Common Core State Standards and consists of three major components, all designed to improve teaching and learning.

The Smarter Balanced Summative assessments are required. They will take place during the last 12 weeks of the school year. These computer-based tests will help schools evaluate how well their students performed by comparing them with students from other schools across the nation. The end-of-year assessments also will empower families by providing them with a clear indication of how well their children are progressing toward mastering the academic knowledge and skills necessary for college and career readiness.

Smarter Balanced assessments replaced the math, reading and writing portions of the MSP students in grades 3-8. The science portion of the MSP (tested in grades 5 and 8) remained the same. 11th graders will take the high school level of the new Smarter Balanced tests, but meeting standard on the tests is not a graduation requirement until the Class of 2019. Students will not take the new Smarter Balanced tests in grades K-2, 9, or 12. 10th graders will only take the English Language Arts Smarter Balanced test.

2019-2020 PSAT Testing Day on 10/16

Dear Inglemoor Families

We will be giving the PSAT exam to all of our 9th, 10th, and 11th graders on October 16th from 7:30 to 11:15.  The exam counts for our 11th graders towards earning National Merit scholarships. Research shows that each time a student takes a specific type of exam they tend to perform at a higher level.  This is why we have our 9th and 10th graders take the exam in addition to our 11th graders.  
All 9th -11th graders have a 13 dollar fee charged to their account to pay for the exam.  If your child needs a fee waiver to pay for the exam please contact your counselor. You can pay the fee in the bookkeeper’s office or online at with your TouchBase account.  If you need an account email the bookkeeper at to gain access.     
During the PSAT testing time all 12th graders will be taking part in various sessions to share information about the needs of their senior year.  
You can have your child opt out of the exam.  Just fill out and return the google form below.  This will remove PSAT fee charged to your child’s account.  If your child does opt out of the PSAT they will work quietly in a room during the testing time.  If you opt out and decide to keep your child home during the testing please email our attendance office to excuse the absence.      
Opt Out Google Form
More information about the PSAT can be found on the pages below.
Bell schedule for the day will be listed under Alternate and Assembly Schedules.
If you have any questions please contact Shawn Rainwater at

Accessing PSAT Scores

Juniors, sophomores, and freshmen who took the PSAT/NMSQT in October can access their scores through their online College Board account starting December 12.

View this video for details on how to access scores.

  • Students who included an email address on their answer sheet will be emailed their access code from the College Board.

  • If a student does not have a College Board account, they can sign up for one at any time.**

  • Students who do not receive an emailed access code can still go to their College Board account, click to get their scores, and provide information to find their scores.

If students are having trouble accessing their released scores:

  • They may need to update their account information. Students can log in to the student score portal and follow the instructions to verify their account.

  • Students can learn how to use their PSAT/NMSQT access code to verify their account by logging in to the student score portal.

  • Does the student have another College Board account? The student or a parent could have made it. Log out and log back in using the other account.

For more help, College Board customer support can be contacted at 866-433-7728, Monday through Friday, 5 a.m. – 4 p.m. PST.

IHS will be receiving paper copies of the Score Reports from the College Board during winter break. Score Reports will then be provided to students, along with a brief tutorial, during lunches in the Career Center on January 2nd and 3rd.

If students should have further questions regarding PSAT/NMSQT scores, they can email their assigned school counselor. Thank you!

**Students should sign up for their own account (with their corresponding email address) that they will continue to access throughout their high school career.

  • Their name should match the name they used when they tested.

  • Parents must not create an account on their student’s behalf. If email addresses do not match or two accounts are established for the same student, for example, students may have difficulties obtaining their scores.
