CO | - | PSAT/SAT blueprint |

CT | The percentages were derived from looking at the subsections and the SAT Content Domains listed for those sections and relating it to the overall percentage for the subsection. Also assessed on this assessment is similarity, congruence, circles, solving equations, polynomials and rational expressions and equations. | The Redesigned SAT document that includes the math blueprint and the SAT Mathematics Specifications. |

DC | - | PARCC - Course-based: Geometry or Integrated Math II. Optional tests include: Alg I, Alg II, Int Math I, and Int Math III. |

DE | Redesigned SAT has replaced the Smarter Grade 11 test in Spring 2016. The change comes at the request of legislators and as the state continues to look for ways to reduce testing, particularly for 11th graders who already were taking both exams as part of the state-funded School Day SAT program. http://www.doe.k12.de.us/site/Default.aspx?PageID=2717 | - |
