• A national SAT® assessment is optional but recommended for students in grades 11-12 interested in applying for colleges. The scores from this assessment can be submitted to colleges and universities as part of the college application process. A national SAT does NOT meet the graduation requirement set forth by ISBE. In the fall, the SAT includes 3 sections: reading, writing & language, mathematics (calculator and no calculator sections). In the spring, the assessment transitions to digital. This digital assessment contains four modules - two reading and writing and two mathematics. Calculators are allowed on both mathematics modules.
