SAT announces changes

The SAT was originally created to make college acceptance a more objective, fair, and equitable procedure.  The belief was that an aptitude test would judge students’ potential and not judge the quality of their education.  The seemingly objective nature of a multiple choice test was to rule out human prejudice.  We now know that a test created by humans and taken by humans will always have a measure of bias.  This Washington Post article explains the steps the SAT is taking to be a more equitable experience for students and to open up access to higher education for all students.
