While high school students head off for summer break, some are trying to get a jump start on next year’s SAT tests.
 
And for good reason too. The College Board, announcing last March, new changes are to come for tests, such as new assessments focusing on knowledge and skills.

Current research shows are essential for college and career success.

College Board Vice President, James Montoya, explains the new formats and how they will benefit students.

“We are really excited about the newly-designed SAT because it focuses on those skills that are necessary for college success and for students it is more aligned with what they are learning in their high school classrooms, taking the test experience itself and connecting it to what they will be expected to do once they enter college or university,” Montoya says. “In addition students are particularly excited because the newly designed SAT will have no tricks. There will be no obscure vocabulary words and from a student perspective it’s great that they will not be penalized for a wrong answer so the new SAT will be a test that is clearer to students.”
