Khan Academy to Offer Free SAT Prep

Last week, the College Board announced not only that the SAT will be redesigned for 2016, but that it has formed a partnership with Khan Academy to offer free SAT prep materials.

According to the Khan Academy website, students taking the SAT in 2014–2015 can visit the site now to find hundreds of questions from unreleased SATs and more than 200 videos with step-by-step solutions.

As for students taking the new SAT starting in 2016, Khan Academy said it will create thousands of practice problems and instructional videos that will be available in the spring of 2015. Students will have a full year in which to practice at their own pace using Khan Academy’s personalized learning dashboard, which recommends exercises at each student’s level and shows progress, points and badges.

David Coleman, president and CEO of the College Board, said, "The SAT should reward merit and hard work, and success on the exam should be available to all. There is no better statement of our commitment to making the SAT a world-class, high-quality and fair test than partnering with Khan Academy to provide free SAT preparation for the world."
