Test Date Formats in SAT Score Reporting

In the 2011-12 school year, the College Board changed the format of testdates in its reporting of SAT and SAT Subject Test scores. All test dates are now reported using a month-day-year format (MMDDYYYY) instead of simply month-year (MMYY).This change allowed, among other things, the reporting of both a weekend and a weekday SAT occurring in the same month.The changes only affected the SAT score report file layout; there were no changes to the SSS® IDS layout file.
