SAT math and verbal scores hit highs. I'm sorry to say this, and it is not just generational envy, but I just can't believe this. You would have to try very hard to convince me that these results aren't due to the 'dumbing down' of the SATs. – SWL [EdTechPost]


it should be noted that the bar has been lowered on the sat, not by making it easier or harder, but by lowering the number of questions that you need to get right in order to get a perfect score, there have been statistical 'corrections' that have allowed students to get higher scores, this is at least part of the explanation.
