A trip down memory lane....with the SAT?

Recommended Posts

That was definitely fascinating and extremely enlightening. No wonder I don't remember anyone doing test prep back in the days that I took it. No one really was since Kaplan was a fairly new " thing" And Princeton Review was just a baby.


But, the most enlightening thing is just how little it really proves!! The fact that the test is going to be revised to correspond to Common Core is a major concern. Is the input-output from students going to end up being directly related to curriculum? I don't think anyone can answer that question until it happens. Will students be at the disadvantage using non-CC curriculum as walking into a school expecting to take their end of yr test?


Seems like a bunch of over-emphasis on a test that seems far from clear objectives. :p

Sounds like the SAT kids take today bears little or no resemblance to the one I took in 1987-1988 or so! And who knows what DD will be doing?


What's funny is that DD did the EXPLORE this year, and since there isn't much for the EXPLORE online, I printed out the Practice ACT from the ACT folk's website in order to give her an idea of what it would look like. The ACT really hadn't changed much from the one I remember from the late 1980s.
