Digital SAT Preview - Brian W. Stewart

The Digital SAT

Starting in spring 2023 for international test-takers and spring 2024 for U.S. test-takers, the SAT is scheduled to shift to a digital format. The new digital SAT will have two Evidence-Based Reading & Writing modules (sections) and two Math modules. The test will be adaptive—the second modules of both Reading/Writing and Math will change in difficulty based on how students do on the first modules of each type. Students who perform better on the first modules will have more challenging questions in the second modules, whereas students who do not perform as well on the first will have easier questions in the second. Here is a summary of the new Digital SAT format:

If you are unsure about whether you should try the paper-based SAT prior to this switch, carefully consider the similarities and differences between the current SAT and the new digital SAT:

Colleges will accept the results of both the current SAT and the digital SAT. Also, keep in mind that the ACT is not planning to make any major changes to its exam at this time. If you prefer a paper-based format of the SAT, you should be sure to attempt the ACT as well.
