The Chronicle of Higher Education reports on a study "to determine whether state exams already given to high-school students may one day replace the SAT in college admissions." The story package sheds light on both students' and colleges' concerns about SAT, and details how the questions for the test are engineered. It also looks at the test-taking business side, and reveals that high-school seniors who take the test yield an annual revenue stream of more that $200-million. "The SAT may also continue to thrive because the alternatives to the test are embryonic, too expensive, or lacking in political support," the Chronicle finds.
