Grading the New SAT Essay

This article is about a teacher who grades the SAT essays. It is not a lot about the essays, except that it tells you that each is graded by two graders, they spend 2.5 minutes on average on the essays, minor grammatical errors are ignored, and using big words inappropriately and often doesn’t really help your score.

Neither does knowing the grader, of course.
