New York Reaches SAT-isfactory Settlement with College Board

  • New York AG Letitia James settled with the College Board to resolve allegations that the non-profit organization violated state education law by improperly monetizing student data acquired through test administration.
  • According to the AG’s office, the College Board allegedly used student data received in connection with the administration of the PSAT, SAT, and Advanced Placement (AP) exams to market its services to students and licensed the data to educational institutions for marketing to students, which violated a state law prohibition on using student data for commercial or marketing purposes.
  • Under the terms of the settlement, the College Board must pay $750,000 to the state and cease monetizing student data, among other terms.
