College Board Announces Revamping of SAT

Written by Beth Cassie

The College Board hosted a live webinar this afternoon touting the redesign of the SAT exam.  The following two articles give great summaries of the planned changes.

What does this mean for students? Current sophomores and juniors – you will not be impacted by the changes. Current freshmen – the new test will not be administered until spring of 2016 so that needs to be factored into your testing plan. Additionally, given the move to more evidence or document-based essays, you may want to consider taking AP history courses that will help you prepare for this type of  work.
