The SAT is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States. It was first introduced in 1926, and its name and scoring have changed several times, being originally called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, then the Scholastic Assessment Test, then the SAT Reasoning Test, and now simply the SAT.
The SAT is owned and published by the College Board, a private, nonprofit organization in the United States. It is developed and administered on behalf of the College Board by the Educational Testing Service. The test is intended to assess a student's readiness for college. It is designed to not be aligned to high school curriculum. Students are tested on reading, writing and maths in the SAT, which can be sat at several different times of the year.
The US-based College Board recently announced that SAT tests, taken by students in American curriculum schools worldwide, will be delivered digitally at international schools from 2023 and in the US from 2024.
Online SAT tests will be taken in school or test centres. The digital SAT will be shorter—about two hours instead of three; it will feature shorter reading passages with one question tied to each; and passages will reflect a wider range of topics. Students will be allowed calculators for the maths section of the exam. SAT scores will be announced within days, rather than weeks, of students sitting there tests.
After the College Board piloted online SATs in the US in 2021, 80% of students responded that they found it to be less stressful and 100% of educators reported having a positive experience.
