When was the SAT first administered in the U.S.?

The College Board first administered the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) in June 1926.

More than 8,000 applicants took the test, most of them applicants to elite colleges such as Harvard, Princeton, and Yale.

The test, intended to help predict subsequent academic performance, was modeled on intelligence tests administered by the U.S. Army in World War I.
