Mastering the Reading and Writing Section on the Digital SAT

By Steven Darby - December 4, 2023

The transition to the Digital SAT brings changes to the format of test sections, and the Reading and Writing section is no exception. In this blog, we'll dive into the details of the Reading and Writing section on the Digital SAT, exploring its structure, question types, and how you can master it.


The Reading and Writing section of the Digital SAT is divided into four content domains: Craft and Structure, Information and Ideas, Standard English Conventions, and Expression of Ideas. Each domain tests specific skills and knowledge that are essential for college and career readiness.


An exciting change in the Digital SAT is the presentation of questions. Instead of a few long reading passages with multiple questions, students will encounter shorter texts, each associated with a single question. This new approach allows for a more direct assessment of your reading comprehension skills and your ability to analyze and interpret smaller sections of text.


Additionally, the Digital SAT offers a range of tools to enhance your performance in the Reading and Writing section. You can flag questions for later review, utilize the countdown clock to manage your time, and even access a built-in graphing calculator for the Math section.


As we continue to explore the Digital SAT, we'll provide insights and strategies to help you excel in the Reading and Writing section. Stay tuned for more tips on how to navigate this section effectively and maximize your score. DTC 720-737-9221
