Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)
The SAT Reasoning Test is a standardized test used for college admission decisions. The test is intended to assess a student's readiness for college. Students should take the SAT beginning in the spring of their 11th grade year only if they are planning on entering a 4-year college/university immediately after high school graduation.
The SAT Reasoning Test measures performance in the areas of Math, Critical Reading, and Writing. Scores are reported on a scale of 200-800 for each section. Although students are required to take the Writing portion most colleges and scholarships use only the Math and Critical Reading scores (total of 1600) when determining program eligibility and/or acceptance.
