KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT/CNN) College Board released sample questions Wednesday for the revamped SAT set to roll out in two years.
An emphasis on "relevant," commonly used words is one of many changes the College Board unveiled Wednesday in an attempt to make the 88-year-old exam "more open and clear than any in our history."
With fewer questions overall, the new test aims to assess students' analytical skills and better help them prepare for college.
"Recent SAT results tell a troubling story about students' readiness for and likelihood for success in their postsecondary endeavors," the College Board said. "Far too few students are ready to succeed in the kinds of education and training that they will need to participate effectively in an increasingly competitive economy."
The College Board released 211 pages of detailed test specifications, including sample questions to show how the test is changing.
