Students Get Scores For the Retooled SAT

By Vaishali Honawar — April 19, 2005 1 min read

The College Board released student scores last week for the revised SAT college-admissions exam. The test’s sponsor said 107 students, out of 304,000 test-takers, made the new perfect score of 2400.

Average scores for the country will be available after August, a spokeswoman for the New York City-based College Board said.

In the version administered for the first time last month, the SAT now includes a writing section with a 25-minute essay, and questions on identifying sentence errors and improving sentences and paragraphs. The mathematics section also was revamped. The test, which previously had two sections and a maximum combined score of 1600, now has three sections, each worth up to 800 points. (“SAT’s Next Chapter About to Be Written,” Feb. 2, 2005.)

Jennifer Karan, the national director of SAT/ACT programs for Kaplan Inc., a test-preparation company based New York City, said an exit survey of students who had just taken the SAT found that more than one out of four ran out of time on the essay.
