Live From Summit 2016: Inside the SAT

Aaron Lemon-Strauss, Executive Director of College Board, led a session exploring the personalized practice tools that more than one million students have used to prepare for the new SAT. The education leaders joining him as panelists were:

  • Elizabeth Slavitt, VP of Learner Strategy and Operations at Khan Academy
  • Bernard McCune, Deputy Chief of the Office of Post-Secondary Readiness at Oakland Unified School District

Free SAT practice is reaching low-income and underrepresented students that had previously not used any SAT practice before. Khan Academy is currently exploring the possibility of adding free practice for other tests. In addition, the College Board will be analyzing its data from the new SAT in conjunction with Khan Academy.
