Through a clear focus on the skills and knowledge that matter most for college readiness and success, the redesigned PSAT/NMSQT and redesigned SAT include expanded benefits for all students. Recently announced, the redesigned SAT (2016) and a historic partnership with Khan Academy will make comprehensive, best-in-class SAT prep materials open and free. Closely aligned to challenging classroom work, the assessments will focus on the few things that evidence shows matter most for college and career readiness. The exams will be clearer and more open than any in the College Board’s history. Students and teachers will know what is covered on the exams.

Whether you’re a principal, curriculum specialist, teacher, counselor, or assessment director, we have the information you need to prepare for the redesigned SAT. Participants will learn about the system including assessment overview, value and benefits for students.
