How do you know scores will be predictive of college success?

We expect that the digital SAT will maintain strong reliability and predictive validity. We’re conducting extensive research and analysis, including comprehensive predictive validity studies, as we transition to a digital SAT:

  • Spring/summer 2022: Validity study examining digital SAT relationships with other educational measures
  • Fall 2023: Preliminary predictive validity study examining college outcomes
  • Ongoing: Extensive research to ensure the digital SAT offers comparable levels of reliability to the current paper and pencil SAT

We’ll share results of these studies, as well as more results from additional pilots and research, when they become available.
