June 23 - 1926 - The SAT is First Administered

The SAT is a part of a high school education in America, and any student who doesn't take the SAT probably takes the ACT. The standardized test's place in American education seems overwhelming now, but the intention of the original Scholastic Aptitude Test was to find the people who were being disadvantaged in education and give them a leg up. While this has not always worked as planned, the SAT has held its place in American culture despite all of its complications.
