According to Nick Anderson at the Washington Post, the test scores from the March 2016 SAT show a common trend in the upward direction. Worries about the new SAT may have been well-founded, as the "easier" test means less separation at the top of the test-taking pool. It would be interesting to see what percentage of students scored a perfect 1600 on this new test, compared with the old one.

College Board has also provided a new SAT Score Converter online and as a mobile app (please see the link below).
