The people who bring you the SAT have apparently gotten antsy with their test again. Last month, the College Board announced that the test will soon undergo a massive overhaul — something that hasn’t happened since early in George W. Bush’s second term.
Before that makeover, the test had been a rock of permanence since Bill Clinton was president. Before that — in a stretch of immutability that may never again be equaled — the SAT had remained basically the same since 1974.
Indeed, the SAT has changed constantly and massively since 1926 when it was created by a man who said American education was in a decay that would accelerate “as the racial mixture becomes more and more extensive.”
In the slideshow below, The Daily Caller takes a nostalgic trip down memory lane with the peculiar American institution that is the SAT, from its origins to the present day.
