SAT exam to be redesigned

SAT exam to be redesigned | college and career ready | Scoop.it
The famed SAT college admissions exam will undergo a thorough redesign by the College Board, which is calling the effort an "ambitious effort" to "better meets" the needs of students and schools.

 

The College Board, the nonprofit organization that owns the SAT, late last year appointed a new president, David Coleman, who was a co-writer of the Common Core State Standards. In a recent speech at the Brookings Institution,Coleman said he has a number of problems with the SAT as now written, including with its essay and vocabulary words. (You can read about that here.)

America's "No Confidence" Vote on College Grads' Work Readiness

America's "No Confidence" Vote on College Grads' Work Readiness | college and career ready | Scoop.it
Only 13% of Americans strongly agree college graduates in this country are well-prepared for success in the workplace. That's down from 14% two years ago and 19% three years ago. This is effectively a "no confidence" vote in college graduates' work readiness, and if we don't work to fix it, there will be catastrophic effects for the American education system and economy.
