SAT Description

THE SAT

 


In response to pressure from college instructors and real-world employers, The College Board has decided to make sweeping changes in the SAT beginning in March of 2005. These changes will be more pervasive than those that were implemented by The College Board in 1994. This time the fundamental changes in the SAT will result in a longer and more comprehensive test that will evaluate a student's knowledge base rather than simply his/her ability level. That is, the SAT is becoming less of an aptitude test and more of an achievement test.
