Beginning in March 2016, College Board will be administering a redesigned SAT Reasoning Test. This updated version of the test will emphasize critical analysis and real-world problem-solving, and a new scoring system will no longer punish students for incorrect responses. It also seems rather clear that many of these revisions (i.e. heavier accent on reading comprehension, reduced focus on “isolated” vocabulary, emphasis of depth over breadth on math sections) are designed to de-emphasize “test prep.” And one final point must be acknowledged—while the College Board continues to publicize and promote these changes, no one can be completely sure of what every alteration will look like or what their full ramifications will be.

With a new SAT comes new test preparation. Administered on campus by Brown Reading Systems, this spring we are offering SAT test prep at Kent that will focus on the new SAT. The registration deadline is March 7, 2016, and sessions are conducted throughout the month of April.
