Collaboration with Higher Education

beginning of content:

College Board members—including national experts in higher education and leaders in enrollment and financial aid—provided vital input on the SAT redesign and implementation plan.

To collect feedback, we conducted a listening tour in 2013, holding 80+ campus meetings and engaging with 220 institutions at various regional and national conference sessions. After the tour, we engaged with more than 1,600 colleges via campus meetings, in-person workshops, and webinars.

The College Board’s Board of Trustees; the SAT Committee; and our three national assemblies—Guidance and Admission Assembly Council, Academic Assembly Council, and the College Scholarship Service Assembly Council—also provided oversight, feedback, and guidance.

Higher Education Working Group

The Higher Education Working Group provided feedback about the test design, the new SAT’s scoring, implementation, validity and concordance, and communications.

This group also ensured that a diverse set of colleges and universities were involved in the discussion and in considering key success factors and potential risks.

The Working Group’s members represented enrollment leaders from a wide variety of institutions.
