What is the SAT?
The SAT is a widely used college admissions exam that can be used to fulfill a Graduation Pathway. The SAT is comprised of two sections which measure student's knowledge and skill in the areas of Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, and Mathematics.
Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW) is a combination of the Reading test and Writing and Language test scores. As the name suggests, this test requires students to use evidence in analyzing text and evaluating writing just as they will be required to do in the college classroom and career environment.
Mathematics questions evaluate students’ ability to apply their knowledge and skills in mathematics through problem solving and modeling, similar to what they would encounter in college courses in the sciences.
When considered in conjunction with other measures, such as course history and grade-point average, SAT scores are useful in evaluating whether or not a student is academically prepared for college.
