Re-Worked SAT. Better Or Dumbed-Down?

Posted: Updated:

Anxious students can get a glimpse of the new S-A-T. The College Board is redesigning the test, which is the nation's most widely used college admission exam.

The board is releasing sample questions of the new version today.  The board has said the new test will include real-world applications and require more analysis. For example, one sample question asks test takers to calculate what it would cost an American traveling in India to convert dollars to rupees. Another questions requires the test takers use the findings of a political survey to answer questions.

The re-designed test is still in draft form, and is subject to change.  It will be officially rolled out in 2016.
