EPS Data Sources

All Students

The All Students – data source consists of test takers from all exam sources (SAT, SAT Subject, PSAT/NMSQT, and AP) across all available testing years, up to one year out of high school.  

Within the All Students data source, you have the ability to look at score sender information from the previous year and up to three years into the future – i.e. one can review the pipe line of students who are currently in ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade, allowing you to access students based on different criteria, regardless of what College Board exam they completed; with the option of combining score sender information from any of the College Board examinations (using “and/or” logic). 

The All Students Data Source file is created for the College Board’s Student Search Service (SSS).  Hence, the EPS All Student data files are updated throughout the year as the SSS student files are updated after each test administration (SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, AP).   

The All Students data records include all test takers; however, for My SAT Score Sender data, only the SAT score senders who requested scores be sent as part of their test registration are included - hence the All Student, My SAT Score Sender data files do NOT include "in-between" score reporting - i.e. any score reporting to an institution outside of the actual test registration process.

The ALL Students data file includes the May and June test administrations.
