Khan Academy and the SAT
by Chris Cyndecki on March 20th, 2014

Standard Achievement Test (SAT) preparation classes can be expensive.  Preparing a high school student for the college entrance exam can cost upwards of $2000 for classes and tutoring sessions.

Khan Academy, the free online video learning platform, has partnered with the College Board to create free SAT test prep software. The program will be designed to diagnose the weaknesses of the student and create a systematic approach to improving scores.

Many self-motivated students in underprivileged school districts lack the resources necessary to prepare for the exam. Khan Academy founder Sal Khan believes that access to college should be based on merit, not money. He hopes the free software will be implemented in after-school programs.
