My daughter asked me last night how the new SAT scores will compare to the old SAT scores, as in "what will a 1300 on the current test be on the new SAT?"
Using the assumption that a 1600 and a 2400 are top scores on each version, and 1500 on the old test can be roughly translated as losing 50 points on each subject area (or 100 points total), is it then fair to say, the equivalent score to 1500 on the new test would be 2250? 2400 - 150 (50 points for each of the three sections?)
Anyone have any thoughts on this? I think this is an interesting question as I think by next march we'll all be struggling with a new "language." I don't think it will work, exactly, to just talk about the math and verbal sections with the new SAT as some people seem to do with the PSATs. It will also be interesting to see how the median changes. Right now it's somewhere in the 1000's as I recall.
