Q: Are programs to report the SAT and ACT scores? They're included in the list linked to the Valid Values for the pre-licensure assessment scores collection and report.
A: No. As alternatives to the WEST-B for program entrances, programs are required to collect and hold SAT and ACT scores. Those scores are, therefore, included in the Valid Values list, and that list (in the Appendix for Report Guidance & Data Manual) is linked to both the data manual and report guidance documentation. However, neither WEST-B, SAT, nor ACT are reported to PESB in the Annual Report. This is documented in the 2015 Fall Report Guidance documentation version 9/11/2015 page 17, as well.
