“Super Wednesday”—Leveraging GEAR UP and the PSAT to Support AP Program Growth Every October, students both nationally and internationally take the PSAT, an assessment that provides students feedback on skills, scholarship opportunities, and practice for important college admissions exams. But how do schools create opportunities for all students to take the PSAT? How can schools use this information to grow their Advanced Placement (AP) program? This session will focus on one school’s implementation of a “Super Wednesday” event where all 10th and 11th-grade students take the PSAT. Learn about how the school used PSAT and AP Potential data to make decisions on program growth and increase enrollment in AP courses.
