Daily Video for June 23 – Welcome to the SAT

TODAY IN HISTORY…

The First SAT is Administered

On June 23, 1926, the College Board, a non-profit organization tasked with standardizing assessments to aid in college admissions, administers the first SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test).  This test was taken at a lightning pace, only 90 minutes were given for students to answer 315 questions, compared to the 3 hours used today for the SAT.

While it’s been modified many times over the years, and has faced intense scrutiny for it’s ability to accurately test a student’s aptitude given inherent biases and questions as to whether or not it’s only testing a student’s ability to take a test, the SAT remains one of the most commonly used college admissions measures and a rite of passage for high school students across the nation.

Timeline of the World’s Largest Passenger Ships – Infographic

Passenger Ships

Today’s infographic starts in 1831 and takes us to the present, looking at the largest passenger ships afloat at the time.  Each time a new ship took the “title”, it was added to the list (hence why RMS Olympic is listed twice with her sister ship, Titanic, between). While the need and desire to travel by sea has not changed much over the centuries, the ships and amenities sure have! [VIA]
