The Maine Department of Education continues its partnership with Cognia (formerly Measured Progress), Inc. and College Board to develop and administer the 2021 State summative assessment in Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA)/Literacy (including Essay) for 3rd-year high school students. The SAT will remain a paper/pencil assessment.
College Students


The Department did not administer the SAT to the Class of 2021 cohort of students this past spring. We know that Maine school districts are diligently working to determine and implement building re-opening plans for in-person instruction where possible. Should a school district opt to independently provide a Fall 2020 SAT administration option to students, the College Board has adapted policies and procedures to ease the process of administering SAT® School Day, the PSAT/NMSQT®, and the PSAT™ 8/9 in school this fall. Districts/Schools who opt to administer a 2020 SAT this fall to students in graduating cohort 2021 must do independently – weekend and/or school day administration. As such, identified SAT school day administration dates for fall of 2020 are: 

Wednesday 10/14/2020 (also PSAT day) 

*Tuesday 10/27/20 (Revised Makeup Date) -Update 9/24/2020:If Schools Need to Use the October 27,2020 SAT School Day Makeup Administration as their Primary Test Day, Please follow these Steps.
