Taken each May by students all over the world, the AP Exam is the final step you take after a year of hard work in an AP class. These standardized exams are designed to measure how well you’ve mastered the content and skills of the course — a successful score could even earn you credit and advanced placement in college.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple choice test, administered by the United States Military Entrance Processing Command, used to determine qualification for enlistment in the United States Armed Forces. It is often offered to American high school students when they are in the 10th, 11th and 12th grade, though anyone eligible for enlistment may take it.
Students need to register for the test in the campus Go Center or College & Career Center. There is no cost for Bryan ISD students to take the test.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) assesses student work as direct evidence of achievement against the stated goals of the Diploma Programme (DP) courses. For students, success on the IB exams often results in advanced standing, course credit, scholarships, and other admissions related benefits at many universities. In order to take an IB exam, students must be enrolled in the course and complete course requirements.
The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a standardized test administered by the College Board and cosponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) in the United States. PSAT is designed to help student practice and prepare for the SAT. During a student’s 11th grade year, the scores from the PSAT/NMSQT are used to determine eligibility and qualification for the National Merit Scholarship Program.
PSAT is given nationwide on October 10, 2018. This year all Bryan ISD ninth grade students will take PSAT 8/9 and all tenth and eleventh grade students will take the PSAT/NMSQT at no cost to families. Students will automatically be registered by their campus.
The SAT is an admission test accepted by all U.S. colleges, and the College Board has programs to encourage all students to take advantage of higher education. If you qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch Program you are eligible for a registration fee waiver. See your counselor for more information about waivers.
The Texas Success Initiative was enacted by Texas legislators for all public state institutions of higher education to follow. The TSI Assessment (TSIA), which may be required of all first-time entering students, will determine students’ readiness for college-level coursework in reading, writing, and mathematics. Students who do not meet the minimum passing standards will be required to follow a developmental education program designed to help them achieve college-level readiness. Results from this assessment will be used for course placement only and not as a condition of admission to the college.
TSIA is offered for free by Bryan ISD for enrolled Bryan ISD students only. Students can test at their high school campus. Dates will be different for Bryan Collegiate HS. Prior to testing students must complete the Pre Assessment.
