Sat gets an overhaul


The Scholastic Aptitude Test, better known as the SAT, is undergoing some major changes for the first time in nearly a decade.  The updated college entrance exam aims to more accurately represent what high school students are learning in school.  Among the changes, the test will return to its 1600-point scoring format, which was changed in 2004.  
 
And, there will no longer be a penalty for wrong answers- a policy that discouraged test-takers from guessing.  Certain vocabulary words will be replaced with more commonly-used words.  The essay portion will be made optional.  
 
Math questions will focus on problem-solving and algebra.  And for the first time, students will have the option of taking the SAT on a computer.  Some educators believe the new test will be less stressful for students.  They have plenty of that to look forward to in the real world.
