Company drops plans for home SAT exam
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.
