The organization that administers a widely-used college entrance test called the SAT will change the examination in 2016. The not-for-profit College Board announced that it no longer will test students on rarely used words. Students also will not be required to provide a written work called an “essay.” And the new SAT will include passages from American historical documents or from writings on issues like freedom and human rights. The SAT is one of two major tests for entrance to American colleges and universities. The other test is called the ACT. Test scores help colleges decide if a candidate can succeed at their schools. More than two million students take the SAT yearly. They include about 100,000 foreign students. Nigerian student Peace Umoru is in her first year at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Ms. Umoru says she thinks the new tests will be easier because of the removal of rarely-used words. She says that is the hardest part for international students. The College Board says words on the new test will relate to usage. Students will be asked to identify the meaning of words based on the way they are used in reading passages. Eddie West is with the National Association for College Admission Counseling. He says the new tests will better-predict a student’s performance in college. But Mr. West says the addition of material related to American historical documents could make the test harder for international students. But the College Board says it is now working with a free, online educational service. Khan Academy will provide preparation material linked to the newly-designed SAT.
