The Digital SAT:
The digital SAT became available in the US beginning in March 2024 and is offered seven times per year on national test dates.
Format
The test (including the break) is 2 hours and 24 minutes in the following format:

 Reading and Writing Module 1  27 questions in 32 minutes
 Reading and Writing Module 2  27 questions in 32 minutes
 10Minute Break
 Math Module 1  22 questions in 35 minutes
 Math Module 2  22 questions in 35 minutes
Reading and Writing
The Reading and Writing section is comprised of short passages and pairs of passages (25150 words each), each with one associated question. Questions are systematically grouped into four overall categories and presented in increasing levels of difficulty. The four categories are:

 Craft and Structure  1315 questions
 Words in context
 Text structure and purpose
 Crosstext connections
 Information and Ideas  1214 questions
 Central ideas and details
 Command of evidence
 Textual
 Quantitative (bar charts, line charts, and graphs)
 Standard English Conventions  1115 questions
 Boundaries
 Form, structure, and sense
 Expression of Ideas  812 questions
 Rhetorical synthesis
 Transitions
 Craft and Structure  1315 questions
Math
The Math section covers four general content areas:

 Algebra  1314 questions
 Linear equations in one and two variables
 Linear functions
 Systems of two linear equations in two variables
 Linear inequalities in one or two variables
 Advanced Math  1315 questions
 Equivalent expressions
 Nonlinear equations in one variable and systems of equations in two variables
 Nonlinear functions
 Problem Solving and Data Analysis  57 questions
 Ratios, rates, proportional relationships, and units
 Percentages
 Onevariable data: distributions and measures of center and spread
 Twovariable data: models and scatterplots
 Probability and conditional probability
 Inference from sample statistics and margin of error
 Evaluating statistical claims: observational studies and experiments
 Geometry and Trigonometry  57 questions
 Area and volume
 Lines, angles, and triangles
 Right angles and trigonometry
 Circles
 Algebra  1314 questions
Approximately 30% of questions will be word problems, although the wording will be more direct than in previous test versions.
Approximately 75% of questions will be multiple choice with four answer choices. The other 25% of questions will be studentproduced response (SPR) questions, which do not offer answer choices. For SPR questions, students must solve for their own answer, which can be a positive or negative fraction, decimal, or whole number. The multiplechoice and SPR questions will be intermixed throughout both Math modules.
Students are welcome to use a calculator on all math questions. The testing platform will provide an onscreen Desmos calculator and students are also welcome to bring their own approved graphing calculator. Scratch paper will be provided.
MultiStage Adaptive Testing
Each first module contains an assortment of easy, medium, and hard questions. Depending on a student's performance (see Adaptive Structure below), the second module will adapt and offer a selection of questions that are skewed easier or harder. As such, the stronger your performance throughout the first module, the more you are challenged throughout the second module. The difficulty of your second module will determine which score range is accessible to you (and there is overlap in the middle of the score range for the easier and more challenging second modules). The number of questions you answer correctly between both modules determines your raw score for that half of the test.
Adaptive Structure:
 In Reading & Writing Module 1:
 answering 18 or more questions correctly leads to the harder Reading & Writing Module 2
 answering 17 or fewer questions correctly leads to the easier Reading & Writing Module 2
 In Math Module 1:
 answering 15 or more questions correctly leads to the harder Math Module 2.
 answering 14 or fewer questions correctly leads to the easier Math Module 2.
Scoring
A raw score is calculated for each set of modules (i.e. section) based on the number of questions a student answers correctly (one point per question). There is no penalty for guessing on the SAT, so it is in a student's best interest to guess when unsure of the answer. The raw score for each section is then converted to a scaled score (200800) through a statistical process known as equating to account for variances in difficulty from test to test. The two section scores are then added together to calculate the overall score. Like many previous versions of the SAT, the overall scoring scale is 4001600.
