Com­pany drops plans for home SAT exam

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - NATION & WORLD -

The com­pany that ad­min­is­ters the SAT col­lege en­trance exam is scrap­ping plans to pro­vide a home ver­sion of the test this year, say­ing it can’t guar­an­tee all stu­dents would have ac­cess to the needed tech­nol­ogy.

The Col­lege Board said Tues­day that it’s paus­ing plans for the re­mote exam but hopes to make it pos­si­ble in the fu­ture. Of­fer­ing the test at home would have re­quired three hours of un­in­ter­rupted in­ter­net ac­cess, the com­pany said.

In­stead, the Col­lege Board said it’s work­ing to ex­pand the avail­abil­ity of the SAT at in-per­son test cen­ters this fall, and it’s ask­ing col­leges to be more flex­i­ble with test­ing re­quire­ments.
