Investigating the Effects of Increased SAT Reasoning Test™ Length and Time on Performance of Regular SAT® Examinees. Research Report No. 2006-9
Wang, Xiang Bo
College Board
This research examines the effect of increased testing time by comparing the four performance indices of randomly equivalent examinee subpopulations on sections of similar content and difficulty administered at different times on three SAT administrations. A variety of analyses were used in this study and found no evidence that the current SAT test length has affected examinee performance at the population level or differentially across gender, racial/ethnic, and best language subgroups. Appended are: (1) Replication on the October 2005 Administration of the SAT Reasoning Test; and (2) Replications on the May 2002 SAT I: Reasoning Test.
