This weekend marks the transition from the current SAT to the redesigned test – it is the last time the current version will be used until the March administration of the new SAT.

Since the time of the first multiple choice format test in 1926, the SAT has gone through a few periods of change, reflecting changing standards about what the test should assess.

A news article this month has covered this subject in the form of an audio article and online quiz. Each of the questions are intended to represent the kinds of questions that would be found on SAT tests from each period of its history, from 1926 to present.

Readers can listen to the audio news and try the quiz here.
