SAT

The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test.  It tests a student's knowledge of reading, writing, and math.  Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior years of high school, and almost all colleges and universities use the SAT to make admissions decisions.

The SAT does not test logic or abstract reasoning.  It tests the skills students have learned in school:

  • The Critical Reading section includes reading passages and sentence completions.
  • The Writing section includes a short essay and multiple-choice questions on identifying errors and improving grammar and usage.
  • The Mathematics section includes questions on arithmetic operations, algebra, geometry, statistics, and probability.

SAT Subjects

SAT Subject Tests are hour-long, content-based tests that allow students to showcase achievement in specific subject areas where they excel.  These are the only national admission tests where students choose the tests that best showcase their achievements and interests.

Reporting of Scores

SAT scores are reported to CSUDH via electronic file transfer.  It is important that all students provide their social security number on their answer sheets on test day so that their SAT scores can be matched in the CSUDH system.  Please contact the Testing Center and Admissions and Records with any possible name or social security number discrepancy so that scores may be properly entered into the CSUDH system.
