Colorado PSAT9, PSAT10, and SAT SBD


The purpose of the PSAT9, PSAT10, and SAT Student Biographical Data (SBD) review is to allow districts the opportunity to verify the accuracy of the demographic data for each student participating in the PSAT 10/SAT assessment. The review process takes place after the test window has closed. Most demographic fields are not reported to College Board through the Pre-ID process and need to be added by CDE for our state and federal reporting requirements. These fields will be pulled from the Student Interchange and SBD is an opportunity to ensure that the interchange data is accurate for these students. SBD also provides an opportunity for districts to verify that invalidations were applied correctly on the student test registrations.

State and federal accountability reporting including school and district performance framework ratings (e.g., Performance Plan, Improvement Plan, Priority Improvement Plan, Turnaround Plan) and federal identification (i.e., Comprehensive Support, Targeted Support, or Additional Targeted Support) all rely on accurate demographic and test score data. Districts are not required to participate in the SBD review process. Note that the request to reconsider process cannot be used to address district reporting errors that should have been corrected during SBD. To learn more about uses in accountability, view the SBD and Accountability fact sheet (PDF).
