SAT at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Standardized test taken by U.S. high-school students applying to colleges. It is divided into two principal sections, verbal and mathematical. Promulgated largely through the efforts of J. B. Conant as a means of promoting merit-based (rather than class-based) college admissions, it was administered to few students before the end of World War II but today is taken by millions each year. Scores declined as the test came to be more widely administered, and in 1995 the score of 500 for each section (midway between the extremes of 200 and 800) was reestablished as the actual mean score of those tested. The test, which most colleges use as one measure of a student's ability, has been insistently criticized for a claimed bias in favor of the white middle class, and for its multiple-choice format, which critics claim is inadequate to test various important capacities.
