Recently, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) received questions regarding whether or not ACT and/or SAT scores should be included on students’ transcripts via PowerSchool. ACT and/or SAT scores must not be included on students’ transcripts for several reasons:
- The NCDPI is not the authoritative source of scores for college reporting; official score reports for college reporting must come directly from ACT/SAT.
- Students make the decision and indicate on their ACT/SAT test booklet where they want their scores to be sent. Students and their parents should have control over what colleges/universities receive the ACT/SAT scores.
- Clerical error may occur when entering ACT or SAT scores into PowerSchool resulting in incorrect information for colleges/universities, and also clerical error may introduce an inaccurate score on the transcript.
- Colleges and universities may not realize that the score on the transcript is not the most recent score, which is often required in the admission process.
