Why is SSAT and how are the SSATs subjects developed?

More than 50 years ago, ten independent admission officers tackled the imminent need for a universal admission test that would determine student academic ability, as well as evaluate their ability to think logically and solve problems systematically. Because of the wide variance of academic programs and standards among elementary and pre-secondary schools, it was problematic to compare academic ability based on grades and other independent performance measures. In an attempt to resolve the inconsistencies, the Secondary School Admission Test Board (SSATB) was formed, which developed the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT). 

SSATs are developed by the combined efforts of high school and college teachers, and test specialists who write SSAT test questions. The process is extensive in developing new editions of the SSAT, involving the following: review, pre-test, analysis of results, and verification of each question and reading selection to ensure specifications are met. Careful measures are taken to also eliminate any material that reflect stereotype, bias or other inappropriate nuances that may negatively affect test-takers. The questions that pass this final analysis become accepted into a pool of questions from which new editions of SSAT tests are constructed.
