Digital SAT Suite of Assessments

In early 2021, we shared that the SAT® Suite of Assessments is going digital. Today we're providing more information about what students and educators can expect from the transition.

The digital SAT will be delivered internationally in spring 2023 and in the U.S. in spring 2024. The PSAT/NMSQT® and PSAT™ 8/9 will be delivered digitally in fall 2023, with the PSAT™ 10 following in spring 2024. Please note: This update doesn't impact SAT School Day or PSAT-related assessments testing in the spring of 2022 or the 2022-23 school year.

While the transition to digital will bring a number of student- and educator-friendly changes, many important features of the SAT Suite will stay the same. The SAT Suite will continue to measure the knowledge and skills that students are learning in high school and that matter most for college and career readiness. Priscilla Rodriguez, Vice President, College Readiness Assessments, shares more in this video.
