As Sylvan Source writers and EDGEucation Squad Ambassadors, we wanted to share with you Sylvan’s refreshed prep course modeled after the new scoring model.
Preparing for the Redesigned SAT
The redesigned SAT has a greater emphasis on:
- critical thinking
- problem solving
- data analysis
- meaning of words in extended contexts
- how word choice shapes meaning, tone and impact.
The redesigned SAT has
- time decreases in critical reading, writing, mathematics and an essay from 3.45 to 3 hours.
- scoring based on correct answers with no penalty for wrong answers.
- an optional essay with an additional 50 minute time allowance.
PLUS a new scoring model and a sub score report with additional academic insights for each test.
The scoring scale will range from 400 to 1600 with 200 to 800 points for evidence-based reading and writing; 200 to 800 for math and 2 to 8 on each of three dimensions for the essay. The essay results will be reported separately. For more information about the redesigned SAT, visit www.sat.collegeboard.org. SAT is a registered trademark of College Board.
