The SAT is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States. It was started by the College Board in 1926. Its name and scoring have changed several times- originally called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, it was later called the Scholastic Assessment Test, then the SAT I: Reasoning Test, then the SAT Reasoning Test, then simply the SAT.
