The College Board, which operates the SAT college admissions test, says it is delaying implementation of new tests until 2016.
The new head of the College board says people in the field asked for more time, but the article says:
“Jed Applerouth, founder of a national test-prep service, said he was scratching his head at the statement that the College Board was delaying the revised SAT because of demand for a slower change. He said that in his discussions with high school counselors and college admissions officials, he wasn’t hearing anyone push for delay.”
Could it be that the SAT folks are worried about increasing competition from the ACT?
Or, could it really be that the SAT folks are having second thoughts about realignment of their test, which is supposed to bring it into agreement with the Common Core State Standards?
