SAT vs. ACT Under ESSA

SAT vs. ACT Under ESSA

July 27, 2018

Elaine Chen reports for Chalkbeat that in a “fight between two giant standardized test providers, the SAT again has won a multi-million-dollar contract for Illinois’ high-school tests—and the also-ran ACT is filing a protest with the Illinois State Board of Education.” The state is not only providing the SAT “as a college entrance exam, but also as a measure of school achievement” under Illinois’ Every Student Succeeds Act plan, “which establishes ways of measuring school achievement and of helping under-performing schools.” The SAT “will make up 7.5 percent of state scores on school quality.”
