Change is on the horizon for the SAT Suite of Assessments, and it's important to stay informed about the upcoming transition to the digital format. Starting in March 2023, all international test centers will administer the digital SAT, marking the beginning of a new era in testing. By fall 2023, all PSAT-related assessments will also transition to the digital realm. However, SAT School Day and SAT weekend administrations in the U.S. will continue to be paper and pencil for the time being.
The full suite of SAT assessments will make the digital leap by spring 2024, revolutionizing the way students approach standardized testing. The timeline is carefully planned to ensure a smooth transition, allowing students ample time to familiarize themselves with the digital testing experience. Registration details and administration dates will be shared, enabling students, parents, and educators to prepare effectively.
Stay tuned as we explore this timeline in detail, understanding when and how the digital SAT will become an integral part of students' academic journeys. From the first digital SAT administration at international test centers to its introduction in the U.S., we'll guide you through the process step by step.
Preparation is key to success, and when it comes to the new Digital SAT, students have a plethora of tools and resources at their disposal.
