    Hello everyone!

    The College Board announced new steps to boost security of its SAT test. These include reducing the number of times the test is administered overseas to reduce the opportunities for test content to be reproduced. The group will also increase its number of security audits and be more proactive in contacting law enforcement when it suspects test prep company plants may be taking the test with the intent of stealing questions.

    We’re still not sure why they just don’t create more questions and stop recycling the same content so many times. It would seem feasible that, given the large number of test takers, they should be able to quickly determine the new questions’ value worth in ranking test takers’ results. Furthermore, modifying certain questions so that they would produce incorrect answers if someone had previous and illegal exposure to them doesn’t seem like far-off science fiction either.

    What do you think? Please leave your comments below.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Sincerely,

    Makes sense to me. It can’t cost that much money to create new questions. Look at all the practice books on the market for heaven sake.

    They’re not going to change until they are really pressured to.
