Major Changes Coming for the SAT

Major Changes Coming for the SAT

The College Board has announced plans to introduce major changes to the SAT beginning in the spring of 2005. The new test will, they hope, be "a more accurate predictor of students' performance in college." To achieve this, the test will be changed in order to reflect more closely what actually happens in high school mathematics. The new SAT will have sections on mathematics, "critical reading," and writing. The mathematics section will include more advanced material than the current version, covering the material normally studied in Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. (The current test covers only material from the first two.) More details can be found at http://www.collegeboard.com/about/newsat/newsat.html.
