Good day and warning! If you are and educator or a student you may want to stop reading I say this because you may be up to your eyeballs in recent memories of finals, last day of school and just want to put it all on the back burner until mid-August.
On this day in 1926, The College Board administered the first SAT exam.I was in my mid-teens and was very excited to be taking part in this.
The SAT Reasoning Test (formerly the Scholastic Aptitude Test or Scholastic Assessment Test) is a standardized test for college admissions in the United States. The SAT is owned, published, and developed by the College Board, a not-for-profit organization in the United States. It was formerly developed, published, and scored by the Educational Testing Service which still administers the exam. The test is intended to assess a student's readiness for college.
In the near future we will be given the MAT for those planning on being married, the PAT which is a test designed to determine the suitability of people to bear/rear children, ( please see photo) and the CAT which heavily details proper etiquette when one owns a cell phone. My guess is that those cell phone owners who speak in full voice in movie theatres may want to study a bit harder before tackling this particular test. Don't get me started on the SCAT. NO, it is not what you think. It is the test designed to rate users of shopping carts in grocery stores. It frightens me to think that the majority of these freaks probably drove to the store and are parked near me.
Good luck, good day.
