The SAT I scores are used as a College admission requirement and student placement instrument. SAT I scores provide colleges with a way to compare academic preparation and abilities of students who apply for admission. SAT I when used in conjunction with high school grades and class rank, serves as a good predictor of academic success in the first year of college. DANTES funds one administration at a DANTES Test Center, for eligible military service members, on either the SAT I or the ACT. Because the SAT program does not score the SAT in July or August, SATs are not scheduled during those months. We recommend that you use the ACT during this period.

The SAT assesses student's reasoning based on knowledge and skills developed through their coursework in three areas: TIME: 4.5 hours.

  1. Critical Reading: Critical Reasoning includes short reading and long passages, and sentence-completion questions. This section consists of extended reasoning; literal comprehension; and vocabulary in context. Time: 70 minutes (two 25 minute sections and one 20 minute section)
  2.  Math section measures mathematical problem solving and covers topics such as Numbers and Operations, Algebra and Functions, Geometry and Measurement, Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability. Time: 70 minutes (two 25 minute sections and one 20 minute section)
  3.  Writing section includes multiple choice questions and an essay. The questions see how well students use standard written English and test their ability to identify sentence errors, improve sentences and paragraphs. Time: 60 minutes (one 25 minute essay, one 25 minute multiple choice section, and one 10 minute multiple choice section).
