Starting in March 2016, the new SAT will replace the current SAT. This is the first opportunity for students to take the newly redesigned test! The registration deadline is Feb. 5, 2016 and students can register at College Board.
Why is the SAT changing? According to College Board the new SAT will focus more on the knowledge, skills, and understanding that research shows are essential for college and career readiness and success.
How is the SAT changing? Specific changes include changes to scoring and score reporting. The new assessments all use “rights-only” scoring; there is no penalty for guessing. This policy encourages students to give the best answer they have to every question.
The new assessments report more scores, including subscores and cross-test scores, designed to give educators and students greater insight into student achievement and readiness for college and career.
Scores will also be reported through a new integrated score reporting portal. A single sign-in will grant access to score data from every assessment in the SAT Suite of Assessments.
