A Closer Look at the Digital SAT Experience

By Steven Darby - August 28, 2023

With the new era of digital testing upon us, it's crucial to understand what the digital SAT experience entails. In this blog, we'll take a closer look at the details of this experience, from the interface students will interact with to the tools available during the test.


Students taking the digital SAT will navigate the exam using a custom-built digital exam application. This application is designed to provide a user-friendly experience that mimics the familiarity of using a laptop or tablet. With clear navigation and intuitive design, students can focus on their responses rather than wrestling with unfamiliar technology.


The digital SAT also introduces a range of tools to enhance the testing experience. Students can flag questions to revisit later, a feature that can prove invaluable in managing their time effectively. Additionally, a countdown clock keeps them informed about their progress and alerts them when time is running out.


One of the highlights of the digital SAT is the built-in graphing calculator available for the math section. No need to bring a separate calculator; this digital tool provides the necessary functions for tackling math problems efficiently. Moreover, a reference sheet featuring common math formulas accompanies each math question, ensuring students have the information they need at their fingertips.


It is even more important for students to practice and prepare for the SAT. There will be important keyboard shortcuts to master and digital tools to utlize in addition to the content and question types that students will need to master.
