SAT® Subject Area Readiness Indicators: Reading, Writing, and STEM
Wyatt, Jeffrey N.; Remigio, Mylene; Camara, Wayne J.
In 2011, the College Board developed the SAT College and Career Readiness Benchmark to assist educators and policymakers in their efforts to better evaluate the college readiness of their students. This benchmark was designed to identify the point on the SAT score scale that is indicative of students' having a high likelihood of success in college, with "success" being defined as a 65% probability of obtaining a first-year GPA (FYGPA) of 2.67 (B-) or higher. This criterion was informed by a panel of expert educators and policymakers convened by the College Board in 2007 (Kobrin, Patterson, Wiley, & Mattern, 2012).
