Revised SAT delayed until 2016


Wednesday, December 04, 2013

The SAT is one of the most commonly used college admissions exams taken by high school student here and abroad as part of the college preparation process. Earlier this year, the College Board announced plans to revamp the test, a move that many academic leaders feel would result in a more rigorous examination than the current test. However, according to Inside Higher Ed, the introduction of the revised SAT has been pushed back by one year to 2016.

Officials at the College Board originally intended for the revised SAT to be implemented by 2015, but in a recent e-mail to high school guidance counselors, College Board President David Coleman said that feedback from academic professionals had played a large role in the organization's decision to delay the introduction of the new test.

"Our top priority remains the same," read Coleman's e-mail, as quoted by The Washington Post. "Working in partnership with our members, we will deliver a redesigned assessment system that best serves higher education and propels students toward success in college and work." He cited the need to give students and educators more time to prepare for the new test. To that end, the College Board will now release the revised PSAT/NMSQT in fall 2015.

According to the College Board, more than 1.6 million students in the high school class of 2013 took the SAT at least once. The SAT is administered seven times each academic year.
