Hi, my question is: If a person took the SATs in 1992 and got score
X/Y on math/verbal, what is the equivalent score in today's terms
(given that the SAT test has changed over the years?

More background: I was told that the SAT score system for pre-college
students has changed over the years.  Some of the changes are
structural in nature, so it would be very difficult to accurately
transform a score from year ABC to year MNO standards... but other
changes were statistical, and are easy to transform.  I would like to
know how to accurately transform an SAT score from 1992 to the most
recent year that an accurate / valid transformation is possible, and I
would like you to provide a URL to the official reference that you
used to do it.  Thank you.
There is no answer at this time.

Thanks... that is pretty close to exactly what I was looking for...
besides that this does not appear to be an official reference site
that is run by the college board or some other official source.

I said "pretty close" because although the format of the chart is what
I needed, this site is not comprehensively addressing the question of
"1992 vs. most recent comparable year."  This link focuses on the
re-centering of the SAT test in a particular year, and shows "before
and after."  What I would like to know is if there were other
"re-centering" type issues that occurred after this one...
