Many college entrance exams in the early s were specific to each school and required candidates to travel to the school to take the tests. The College Boarda consortium of colleges in the northeastern United States, was formed in to establish a nationally administered, uniform set of essay tests based on the curricula of the boarding schools that typically provided graduates to the colleges of the Ivy League and Seven Sistersamong others.
Terman in particular thought that such tests could identify an innate " intelligence quotient " IQ in a person. The results of an IQ test could then be used to find an elite group of students who would be given the chance to finish high school and go on to college.
The commission, headed by Carl Brighamargued that the test predicted success in higher education by identifying candidates primarily on the basis of intellectual promise rather than on specific accomplishment in high school subjects. Specifically, Conant wanted to find students, other than those from the traditional northeastern private schools, that could do well at Harvard.
The success of the scholarship program and the advent of World War II led to the end of the College Board essay exams and to the SAT being used as the only admissions test for College Board member colleges.
Machine-based scoring of multiple-choice tests taken by pencil had made it possible to rapidly process the exams.
Bill produced an influx of millions of veterans into higher education. Brigham felt that the interests of a consolidated testing agency would be more aligned with sales or marketing than with research into the science of testing.
Although those taking the test came from a variety of backgrounds, approximately one third were from New YorkNew Jerseyor Pennsylvania. The majority of those taking the test were from private schools, academies, or endowed schools.
The test contained sections on English, FrenchGermanLatinGreekhistory, mathematics, chemistryand physics. The test was not multiple choice, but instead was evaluated based on essay responses as "excellent", "good", "doubtful", "poor" or "very poor".
It was administered to over 8, students at over test centers.

Many writing curricula are based on a conceptual model that takes into account process, product, and purpose.
Slightly over a quarter of males and females applied to Yale University and Smith College. This scale was effectively equivalent to a to scale, although students could score more than and less than Inthe number of sections was again reduced, this time to six.
These changes were designed in part to give test-takers more time per question. For these two years, all of the sections tested verbal ability: The verbal section of the test covered a more narrow range of content than its predecessors, examining only antonyms, double definitions somewhat similar to sentence completionsand paragraph reading.
Inanalogies were re-added. Between andstudents had between 80 and minutes to answer verbal questions over a third of which were on antonyms. The mathematics test introduced in contained free response questions to be answered in 80 minutes, and focused primarily on speed.
From tolike the and tests, the mathematics section was eliminated entirely. When the mathematics portion of the test was re-added init consisted of multiple choice questions.
Although one test-taker could be compared to another for a given test date, comparisons from one year to another could not be made. For example, a score of achieved on an SAT taken in one year could reflect a different ability level than a score of achieved in another year.
Byit had become clear that setting the mean SAT score to every year was unfair to those students who happened to take the SAT with a group of higher average ability.
All SAT verbal sections after were equated to previous tests so that the same scores on different SATs would be comparable.This week we gave our writing assessment.
Each kindergarten class performs the same assessment in the same manner. Our prompt is, 'Write about something you like to do in the snow'. Teachers do not confer with students during this assessment and we do not give a writing mini-lesson before the assessment.
This is an independent task. Summer Activities Read the information in the box. Then do the writing activity. What do you like to do in the summer? Pre-Write: Teacher’s Guidance. Critical Thinking Skills Chart Great Verbs to help explain Blooms.

These resources can we used by the pupil to self-assess their work (put a tick in the P column) and for the teacher to then assess (T column). They are not perfect lists. They are designed for Year 6 to use.
