College Board says printing error won’t affect SAT scores

CB称打印错误将不会影响SAT考试成绩


WASHINGTON — The College Board acknowledges that test booklets for hundreds of thousands of students taking the SAT college entrance exams last Saturday carried an error, but says it won’t affect test scores.

华盛顿邮报称,大学理事会承认:上周六发放给成千上万考生的SAT试卷存在打印错误,但是这将不会影响考试成绩。


The board’s website on Tuesday says the error appeared in test books provided to students across the nation who took the test that day — about 487,000. According to the board, the test booklets from the Educational Testing Service incorrectly stated that 25 minutes were allotted for the last reading section. Because of the way the test is administered, students taking the last math section in the same room also were affected.

在本周二CB官网上称,在考试当天提供给全国考生的带有打印错误的考卷大约有487000份。据理事会所说,由教育考试服务中心提供的试卷上错误的标示:最后的阅读部分由25分钟完成。由于考试管理的方式导致考生们在进行最后的数学部分的考试时也受到了影响。

The board, however, said the manual provided to supervisors overseeing the exam had the correct 20-minute limit for those sections. As soon as ETS learned of the misprint that day, it worked “to provide accurate guidance to supervisors and administrators” overseeing the test, the board said.

然而董事会声称,提供给监督总管的考试手册是含有20分钟考试限制的正确信息的。一旦ETS得知印刷错误的时候,这本手册将提供主管正确的指引。

All students who took the SAT that day are affected. The board says sections with the incorrect time limit will not be scored, but that it will still be able “to provide reliable scores for all students.”

所有在那天考试的考生都受到了影响。大学理事会声称那些带有印刷错误也就是错误的答题时间的部分将不计入成绩(也就是第8部分和第9部分),但是它仍然能给所有的考生提供可靠的分数。

“We have deliberately constructed both the reading and the math tests to include three equal sections with roughly the same level of difficulty,” the board said in its statement. “If one of the three sections is jeopardized, the correlation among sections is sufficient to be able to deliver reliable scores.”

“我们特意设置了包括三部分难度相同的阅读和数学测试,"理事会在声明中说道,”如果三个部分中有些遭到了破坏,那么其余部分的分数因为其相关性也能够给出可靠地分数。“

The omission of one section was criticized by Bob Schaeffer, education director at the National Center for Fair & Open Testing, or FairTest.

国家公平公开考试中心的教育主任严厉批评了这一部分的遗漏。

“The College Board/ETS took the course of least resistance by announcing they would score the test without an entire section,” Schaeffer said. “If reliable and valid scores can be generated from June 6 exams despite a missing section, why do students at other SAT administrations have to spend the additional time answering questions that the test-makers now say are unnecessary?”

”大学理事会宣布他们不需要一场完整的考试也能评判考生的成绩,“谢佛说,”如果凭借6月6日那个有所缺失的考试也能给出一个可靠有效的分数的话,那为什么其他学生还要花额外的时间去回答那些出卷人所谓的不必要的问题呢?“

看完这篇后续报道,至少小伙伴们对于SAT的分数是不用担心了,但是也正如最后那位童鞋所说,既然少了一部分的成绩也能凭借其他部分来评价给分,为什么我们还要花那么多时间去浪费在”不必要“的部分上呢?不考(某一部分)也能有成绩,是不是意味着之后的考试也能选择性的考几部分,然后防空其他部分,既减少了学生的压力,也减轻了出题的负担。当然这也只是君自己在YY而已,不过CB这一做法无疑是给自己的一个牵强的理由和大大的讽刺。

总而言之,言而总之,作为考生的我们,又能怎么办呢,见招拆招,兵来将挡水来土掩,最后君仍然要祝福各位考生考试顺利!希望再也不要出什么岔子了!
