    College Board to offer Webinars on redesigned SAT


    The College Board has created a series of Webinars containing information on the redesigned SAT scheduled for the week of May 23. Key content changes of the redesigned SAT will be discussed as well as a review of the Professional Development Modules that walk through those changes. A total of six modules for administrators, counselors, and teachers will give a better understanding of the redesigned SAT. The webinar walks through the content within each module and at the end of the webinar series, viewers will be able to tailor content to present information to colleagues in professional development sessions, school and district staff meetings, and professional learning communities.


    Additional resources will be reviewed to support all educators on the redesigned SAT and share information on how schools can support students as they set up their Khan Academy accounts for practice.


    Webinars are available on May 23 through May 26. Click here to register for one of the specific dates.

    Video highlights SAT implementation in state



    The IASA Board of Directors heard a very informative presentation at its last meeting regarding the implementation of the SAT in Illinois. The presentation was given by Hoor Bhanpuri, Executive Director of the K-12 Illinois Partnership and a represenative of the College Board. It is looking more and more likely that the SAT won't be implemented in Illinois until the next school year, but some services are already available for free to students wishing to prepare for the SAT. That suite of services and an overview of major changes to the SAT are just a couple of items included in the video. You can view the video by clicking here.
