Individual tests[edit]

I was just thinking, that like the AP test pages, we should create individual pages based on what the tests themselves are and have a better focus? Anyone else interested?

Good idea. Zginder 13:14, 26 April 2007 (UTC)
that should ultimately be done. Niffweed17, Destroyer of Chickens 01:50, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
I started a chemistry test article. Here is the link: SAT Subject Test in Chemistry. Zginder 01:58, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Be careful about linkage. Most of the existing links point to articles on the particular subject being tested, but the Chemistry link points to the actual subject test page. Both should probably be provided. — Edward Z. Yang(Talk) 03:34, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
I've done the same as Zginder with the US History test. Niffweed17, Destroyer of Chickens 03:59, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
If someone were to create a template with all of the SAT IIs, that would be helpful. Niffweed17, Destroyer of Chickens 04:00, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
I have started a English Language Proficiency Test article.Zginder 21:25, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Admission section[edit]

The section on admissions is lacking cited resources and also incredibly incorrect. According to Stanford University only recommends any number of Subject Tests. There are very few schools that require any number of Subject Tests with the exception of entrance to special programs.


Why are all of the notes (math I, math II and US History) written inside parentheses? It just seems a little unnecessary.

Good point. Fixed. --YbborTalk 18:11, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:SAT Logo.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:SAT Logo.svg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Statistics, anyone?[edit]

Like the SAT I test, should these have percentiles? I mean, if there's sources for the mean, then there shouldn't be a problem getting them. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:08, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

20 + 40 = 60[edit]

Every test is now a one-hour timed test. Historically, the exception to the one-hour time was the writing test, which was divided into a 20-minute essay question and a 40-minute multiple choice section.

A tweny minute essay question plus forty minute multiple-choice section equals 60 minutes which equals one hour. Could someone please clarify what this is trying to say? ~ FerralMoonrender (TC) 23:30, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

I think what is meant is the current test is in one chunk and any question can be answered at any time. Zginder 2008-10-04T02:49Z (UTC)

Other tests no longer offered?[edit]

Should there be a mention of the Latin and Russian exams, which are no longer offered? (Also, wasn't "World History" originally European History?) - That Don Guy (talk) 14:59, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
