David Coleman, the president of the College Board, announced in a letter to members last week, the beginning of an effort to redesign the college-entrance exam to better reflect the Common Core State Standards. The new assessment will aim to better connect K-12 and higher education institutions and more sharply focus on a core set of knowledge and skills that are essential for readiness, access, and success in college, wrote Mr. Coleman, a chief architect of the common standards.

To get the process rolling, the College Board will hold meetings across the county to solicit feedback from stakeholders.

The organization hopes to increase the value of the SAT to K-12 teachers, administrators, and counselors; ensure content reflects excellence in classroom instruction; and develop companion tools to improve instruction and curriculum.
