S-A-T exam is affecting colleges all

Virginia.

*CG file File Tape

Last week, the agency that
administers the S-A-Ts, announced it
found scoring errors on 4-thousand of
the nearly half-a-million tests taken
in October -- causing a score
difference by as much as 390-points.

The College Board re-scanned the
tests, but did NOT punish students who
benefitted from the mistake.

But, for most schools like
Roanoke College, which had
13-applicants with flawed scores, it
never really mattered.

The problem isn't over, though.

On Tuesday, the College Board
announced another 16-hundred tests that
were under review for reasons unrelated
to the error still have to be
re-scanned.

The board hopes to publish those
scores by next week.
