SAT measures the knowledge and skills that research shows are essential for college and career readiness and success. The assessment is composed of Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, Math, and an optional writing test.
SAT State Testing
A state-funded SAT assessment will be administered to all high school juniors on Tuesday, April 9. This in-school administration will include the optional essay. Students who have an extended time accommodations per their IEP or 504 Plan may be required to test over 2 consecutive days, depending on the type of accommodation.
All 11th grade students must take the SAT to receive a regular high school diploma, unless the student is eligible to take the alternative assessment or otherwise exempt from testing. Per Illinois state guidelines, a student cannot be promoted to Grade 12 unless they have met the SAT assessment requirement. For more detailed information about the state requirements, you can view Illinois Public Act 100-0222.
