The SAT is a test required by many US universities and colleges for admissions and sometimes scholarship applications. The name of the test has been changing over the years. It was called the Scholastic Aptitude Test when the test started in 1926.
In the past it has been called the Scholastic Assessment Test, the SAT I: Reasoning Test, and the SAT Reasoning Test. Current it is simply called the SAT(ESS-AY-TEE)
The SAT is designed to assess your academic readiness for college. The SAT provides a path to opportunities, financial support, and scholarships, in a way that’s fair to all students. The SAT keeps pace with what colleges are looking for today, measuring the skills required for success in the 21st century. The combination of high school grades and SAT scores is the best predictor of your academic success in college
The SAT tests your knowledge of reading, writing and math — subjects that are taught every day in high school classrooms. The SAT two main sections are the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW, normally known as the “English” portion of the test) and the Math section. These are both further broken down into four sections: Evidence-Based Reading, Writing and Language, Math (no calculator), and Math (calculator allowed)
The Evidence-Based SAT Reading section has 5 passages and 52 Multiple-Choice items to be answered in 65 minutes and tests how well test takers read for information and ideas, rhetoric and synthesis. The SAT Writing and Language section has 4 passages and 44 multiple-choice items to be answered in 35 minutes and test how well test takers can edit text using standard written English conventions and make corrections to text on Development, Organization and Effective language use.
The SAT Math Section has 58 Math Questions given in two sections named Math-No Calculator (20 Questions to be answered in 25minutes) and Math-Calculator (38 questions to be answered in 55 minutes). Of the 58 Math Questions, 45 are multiple-choice and 13 are student-produced response. 19 of the questions are Heart of Algebra, 17 are Problem Solving and Data Analysis, 16 are Passport to Advanced Math and 6 Additional Topics in Math
Two section scores result from taking the SAT: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, and Math. Section scores are reported on a scale of 200 to 800, and each section score is a multiple of ten. A total score for the SAT is calculated by adding the two section scores, resulting in total scores that range from 400 to 1600. In addition to the two section scores, three “test” scores on a scale of 10 to 40 are reported, one for each of Reading, Writing and Language, and Math, with increment of 1 for Reading / Writing and Language, and 0.5 for Math. There are also two cross-test scores that each range from 10 to 40 points: Analysis in History/Social Studies and Analysis in Science.
