Students should brace for longer, more difficult SAT
from The Sacramento Bee
From Nov. 5:
Students across the country are preparing for a new, more challenging SAT that will debut in March, the first major revision of the college admissions exam in a decade. The College Board, which administers the SAT, decided last year that the test needed to better reflect what students are learning in class, particularly as most states have adopted Common Core State Standards. Among the biggest changes: Obscure vocabulary is no longer a primary focus. Now students must analyze text and show that they understand how the author uses words in passages.
