The New SAT is so designed to help select the most college-ready students for admission into the various American universities.
Being college-ready is a quality that nieeds to be adequately acquired by every intending student. There are well-defined academic (achievement)and aptitude skills that a person preparing to study in an American university is expected to possess. It is the student's mastery of these skills that makes him ready for college. It is also the mastery of the skills that the SAT assesses.
Here, I'll talk briefly about the various sections of the SAT and the corresponding skills that are needed to do very well in the test.
THE SAT READING TEST
At the Be-Noble Home School, we divide the 52 Reading Test questions into 6 main categories.
1.) Command of Evidence (COE) questions;
2.) Words-in-Context (WIC) questions;
3.) Description/Information questions;
4.) Purpose questions;
5.) Infographic questions; and,
6.) Paired Text questions.
We teach our students effective and proven techniques that help them to adequately grasp the skills needed to answer each of these types of questions correctly.
The most important skill needed to really do well in the English section of the SAT is VOCABULARY DEVELOPMENT. That is, to score something in the range of 700-800 in the Reading/Writing section of the new SAT a student's vocabulary prowess should be very high. This doesn't in any way suggest that a student needs to sit down studying the dictionary day and night - like many did for the old SAT. High vocabulary mastery is very essential for many reasons. But foremost among them is that the correct answer to a question in the Evidence-based Reading section of the new SAT is only a rewriting of the relevant part of the passage. The problem is that many students fail to recognise the correct answer as a restatement of the the required section if the passage. They fail to see that the words used in giving the correct answer are mere synonyms of the words used in the passage. Those who do poorly are easily fooled because they can't see the restatement for what it is. Most students that aren't not well tutored for the SAT will go for what we at the Be-Noble Home School call the SEEMINGLY CORRECT ANSWERS. These answers which are actually wrong will look very correct to a student that hasn't been well prepared for the SAT. This is so because those seemingly correct answers are somewhat direct quotations from the passage. But unfortunately they are quoted from the irrelevant parts of the passage: the parts of the passage that are not relevant to the questions asked.
At the Be-Noble Home School, we train our students how to easily recognise the OBVIOUSLY WRONG ANSWERS, SEEMINGLY CORRECT ANSWERS and the VERY CORRECT ANSWERS.
Besides vocabulary mastery, the other skills that are needed to gainfully and easily tackle the various types of questions in the SAT Reading section are:
1.) Ability to use the introduction to the passage and the the passage's first few sentences to correctly deduce the purpose or main theme of the passage. The same applies to determining the purpose of paragraphs.
2.) Ability to quickly and effectively study Infographic materials.
3.) Ability to use the quotations for the second question of the command of evidence (COE) pair of questions to answer both questions correctly. And to use same as strong aids to reading or skimming the passage.
These are few of the basic skills that high scoring students have been using to tackle the Evidence-based Reading section of the new SAT.

In Nigeria here, we overlook learning differences/difficulties. Parents and teachers deny dyslexia, dyscalculia and so on even when the LD is very obvious in a child. Denial or rejection has never been and will never be of help. Worse still, some parents, guardians and teachers term children with LD "dullards, slow learners, blockheads, olodo" and all the bad names in the world. The truth however is that they are not any of these. It's actually the teachers, parents, guardians, siblings, friends, neighbours and the likes that make life difficult for the children with LD. These children learn differently from the way most people do. But people around them do not understand this. They want to force their style of learning on them and things become difficult, frustrating and fruitless. LD is neither a disease nor a curse. It's just a character or better still a different way of seeing or doing things.
