CB想打翻身仗 SAT考试时间大调整

作者:长沙创新教育   发布时间:2016-02-18 12:13   浏览次数:

大过年的,CB也不消停,放大招了,对SAT考试时间做了调整,取消1月份考试,增加8月份考试,整体来说,对SAT考生还是有利的。

 

众所周知,2016年1月份的SAT考试是旧SAT的最后一次考试,但这次旧SAT收官之考对CB来说可能是永远的痛,一方面因泄题取消不少考点,另一方面考生信任度大打折扣,1月份考生人数是一年中最少的一场,也是近几年最少的一场,昔日熙熙攘攘的万人坑倒显得有些落寞。加上ACT考试的趁势掩杀,CB的日子确实不怎么好过。于是,1月底CB开了个会,想过去,看今朝,思绪此起彼伏。于是决定要做点对考生有利的调整的想法:

 

一、取消1月份考试,增加8月份考试

 

是的,CB再也不想看到1月份的考试了。其实1月的考试对SAT考试来说,有点鸡肋的感觉,食之无肉,弃之有味。1月的SAT成绩已经错过了当年的申请,而对于下一年的申请又不能代表学生的应有的水平,大多数学生都把本次考试当作“熟悉考场”。而调整到8月份,反而会让很多考生重视起来,再也不用被折磨到10月份了。其实对CB而言,考生太少也不划算,毕竟出一套试题的成本很高的。看来,CB真的想要打翻身仗了。

 

而这个时间调整是从2017年下半年开始,也就是说2017年不仅有1月份考试,还平白无故多了一场8月份考试,也就是说北美考生一年有8次考试机会了(非北美7场)。

 

这个时间调整,国内SAT考生(现高一及以下年级学生)应该足够重视起来,要和暑期的课外活动合理的做好时间规划,EA/ED的同学也要做好准备。

 

二、每年会在可汗学院上放出过去一年考过的3-4套题

 

之前旧SAT考试的时候,每年也会放出一部分考过的试题,而推出新SAT后,基本都在可汗学院放出了,取代之前的QAS。

 

此前CB已经在可汗学院放出了新SAT试题:

College Board携手可汗学院发布4套新SAT试题 可免费练习

可汗学院最新四套新SAT官方样题中阅读部分解读

可汗学院最新四套新SAT官方样题中文法解读

 

三、新考试会有部分加试,但会征求考生意见

 

那些不写可选写作的同学可能会遇到加试,加试不计入成绩。加试会出现在选择题后面。

 

四、一次性放出今后三年的考位

 

在CB官网放出了“暂定的”2016年10月--2019年6月的考试时间,之前通常是公布一年的考试时间:

 

Anticipated Dates(注意,这里不是正式公布时间)

 

2016-17 SAT Dates

2016-17 SAT Administration Dates (Anticipated)
SAT Date SAT Subject Tests Available?
Oct. 1, 2016 Yes
Nov. 5, 2016 Yes
Dec. 3, 2016 Yes
Jan. 28, 2017 Yes
March 11, 2017 No
May 6, 2017 Yes
June 3, 2017 Yes

 

2017-18 SAT Dates

2017-18 SAT Administration Dates (Anticipated)
SAT Date SAT Subject Test Available?
Aug. 26, 2017 Yes
Oct. 7, 2017 Yes
Nov. 4, 2017 Yes
Dec. 2, 2017 Yes
March 10, 2018 No
May 5, 2018 Yes
June 2, 2018 Yes

2018-19 SAT Dates

2018-19 SAT Administration Dates (Anticipated)
SAT Date SAT Subject Test Available?
Aug. 25, 2018 Yes
Oct. 6, 2018 Yes
Nov. 3, 2018 Yes
Dec. 1, 2018 Yes
March 9, 2019 No
May 4, 2019 Yes
June 1, 2019 Yes

除了每年三月份SAT科目考试显示为“not available”之外,其他都是“available”。

 

CB的调整考试时间可能与美国大学申请新系统CAAS即将上线有关,提前放出考试时间,更有利于学生做时间规划。

 

最后,随着美本申请人数的增多,SAT考位也会随之紧张起来,如果已经做好留学规划的同学,还是尽早把考位落袋为安的好。

 

附CB官网通知内容:

 

A test date in late August will replace the test date in late January.

 

Starting in summer of 2017, the College Board will offer a test in late August, which will replace the one in  late January. The other dates(October, Noevember, December,March,May, and June)will not change. On their website, the College Board has released testing dates for the next 3 years, up through the spring of 2019.Previously, they had only released dates one year at a time.

 

Here is the link(scroll down to see the new testing dates):

https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register/dates-deadlines

 

The College Board plans to make 3-4 official tests per year available as pdfs on Khan Academy.

 

Starting with the May7, 2016 SAT, each year the College Board will make 3-4 official tests freely available as pdfs through Khan academy. These tests will be available as soon as scores are released. The College Board previously made test booklets available to students for the old SAT through their Question-and Answer(QAS) for the October,January, and May tests, but this was an add-on service that students could purchase. How the release of the redesigned tests through Khan Academy will impact QAS is unclear. Stay tuned.

 

Occasionally, a 20 minute variable(experimental) section will be added to the end of the multiple choice sections.

 

When the College Board first anounnced the redesigned SAT, they mentionedthat the test would still contain pretest items (experimental questions), but the implementation mechanics were unclear. 

 

At the forum, we learned a bit more. Pretests items will be sefl-contained in a 20-minute variable, or experimental, section at the end of of the scored multiple choice protion of the test. According to the College Board, the variable section will be included only on the "occasional"  test date and will be announcedahead of time. Furthermore, only those students not writing the optional essay will be given variable section. Performance on this section will not impact students' scores. 

 

No changes are planned for the Subject Tests.

 

The Subject Tests have been and continue to be forgotten children of the College Board. Once again, they have announced that there are no upcoming changes to the Subject Tests and no plans for revisions in the near future.
