The Morning Call, Friday, March 10, 2006
Article by Genevieve Marshall focuses on SAT snag involving the scores of 4,000 of 495,000 students who took the exam in October. According to the College Board, the student scores initially reported were actually higher by 10 to 400 points. Pennsylvania had 319 affected test-takers and was fourth among states with the greatest number of students affected by the scoring error. New York was first, followed by New Jersey. March is a frantic time at colleges and universities, as final decisions on applications are being made. At DeSales, a 100-point difference in SAT scores can mean the difference between $6,000 and free tuition. Mary Birkhead, director of admissions at DeSales, is quoted saying, "Fortunately, nobody missed out on scholarship money because of the score changes."
