College Board: Scores Stagnant Ahead Of Test Overhaul


The Huffington Post (10/7, Resmovits) reports that the College Board has released a report indicating that this year’s SAT scores in reading, math, and writing were “about the same as the last few years,” quoting Cyndie Schmeiser, the group’s chief of assessment, saying, “Flat and stagnant would be the words that we would use.” Noting that the College Board “announced plans for a major SAT redesign” earlier this year, the Post reports that the group “points to the test scores as a sign that American education needs renewed rigor and resources.”
