The mixed reactions to the major changes in SAT examination is being discussed. Vocabulary words are no more there. Essay that was mandatory has been done away with. The only addition is the reading of US historical doc.
Native Language Speakers • The concerns relating to the American founding doc is that it will pose a bigger challenge to the students from native language speaking countries. The unexpected thing is that the questions on passages in cultural references can be hard. To identify with them would be a major worry for native speakers of the English language.
Welcome Change • In the year 2005, the last major change was made to SAT examination. According to David Coleman, president of the College Board, the new test being made available from the year 2016, in Spring will be less stressful. The main idea is to help the students who are aspiring to study and take training in international schools and colleges. To take away the burden of eliminating answer choices. There will be no more negative marks for wrong answer. Most welcome.
Welcome Change • Coleman added, now the students need only to justify their answer. He also said that the test is changing in view of the necessity to offer an opportunity to wider student base. He opined that the earlier test pattern was hindering the student's progress to study and obtain coaching in top schools and colleges.
Mixed Reactions • There are mixed reactions as the students see that the change in SAT examination pattern is welcome. Some of them say how this is going to work out. The revamp to SAT examination will help the international students or hurt their pass out percentage is to be seen.
Obscure Words • The student will now require to read passages from a broad range of subjects, including history, science, social studies, literature. Obscure words learned from flashcards will no longer be required to complete sentences. The students will encounter words such as, “empirical” and “synthesis”.
Obscure Words • The one major constructive approach is to test the student's ability in constructing a sentence. It is indeed a good way to test the thinking of the student's to construct a phrase and give a relevant reason for the presentation. This includes language command and thought process.
Obscure Words • In spite of all the major changes in SAT examinations, it is imperative for the colleges and schools to cooperate and flow with the tide. This is is only to make the student do well and get a high credit score. The basic idea to help them learn the new SAT examination pattern and hone their skills for a bright career in international schools and colleges.
