Wow, I don't know of any school that releases in November. I believe our school gets them in December but holds them hostage until January. With my 2014 grad I was able to log onto collegeboard and get his score in December. I'm not sure how I did that. My memory is foggy. I'm sure I had a code of some sort. I logged on to get my 2009 grads December SAT scores and saw something about PSAT scores being available. I never would have thought to look otherwise. Much to S2's chagrin I actually laughed when I looked at his scores. He gives me grief to this day. His math and written put him well into NMF range...his CR was pitiful and absolutely not representative of what he was capable of. In looking at the questions he missed it was evident that my math/science brained son did not understand the language they were using to ask the questions. I assured him this was a good thing, something we could easily work with, and easily study for. The PSAT did him a great favor in pointing this out. With decent study effort on his part, specifically on CR he scored over 700 on his SAT CR. The schools he was interested in didn't reward NMF so it wasn't really an issue.
I say this to point out, if your students score is lower then they'd like, especially if a section seems like an anomaly, help them understand this is not a bad thing. It is pointing out areas they need to focus on. Carefully looking at the questions missed can really pinpoint where the issue lies. Are they missing actual concepts, did they not finish, are they confused as to what is being asked, what's the real issue here and how best to address it? Once you determine that it can be very empowering for a student as they feel they have a plan and a direction. Instead of seeing a low score on math they can break it down to "I did well on concepts W, X, Y, but I need to study concepts L, M, & N". This is specific and less overwhelming then "I need to bring up my math by a bajillion points".
