Articles about changes to the SAT

Ati and Madison sent me links to some articles about changes in the SAT, related to the discussion we had in class on Thursday.

Though gender is not at the center of the current discussion about these changes, this older article from the FairTest website talks about gender and issues of access in relation to the SAT:

FairTest is a group that the Sadkers and Zittlement discuss at length in SFAF because of their great research on demographics and educational testing.

About Marisa R. Brandt

Always thinking about how cultural meaning-making and knowledge-production go hand-in-hand. I completed my Ph.D. in Communication and Science Studies at UCSD in May 2013. My dissertation, War, Trauma, and Technologies of the Self: The Making of Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy, is a biography of a virtual reality system called Virtual Iraq/Afghanistan which was designed to aid therapists in making their war veteran patients re-experience their traumatic experiences in order to overcome them. I am also a freelance writer, editor, and comics creator, a homebody and an adventurer. I care a lot about people and things.
