It was announced earlier that the redesigned test will reflect Common Core standards, revert scoring to the previous 1600 scale, deem the essay optional, remove arcane vocabulary words, and provide more evidence-based reading. Additionally, SAT Math questions will focus on "the heart of algebra," problem-solving and data analysis, and problems covering topics relevant to college and career. The College Board indicated the redesigned SAT will focus more on a student’s academic achievement and will contain fewer “tricks,” largely taught through expensive test prep services, with the goal leveling the playing field to assess an increasingly diverse student body.
