David Coleman calls for updating the SAT

David Coleman, president of ETS since October of 2012 has sent out a letter calling on colleagues to participate in a revision of the SAT in order to

  • better meet the needs of college admissions offices
  • better reflect excellence in instruction of the common core curriculum so that schools can use results to  improve curriculum and instruction
  • reinforce the practice of school work to ensure a smooth transition to post-secondary education while ensuring fairness and equity

This will apparently be a process that involves a lot of different stakeholders.  If you were to make changes to the SAT, what would they be?
