Does a free score report include scores from previous tests as well?

From College Board:

"Before Scores Are Released

You can send four free score reports to colleges every time you register for the weekend SAT. This is the fastest way to send scores to colleges and scholarship programs—and there's no fee. You can use your free score reports up to 11:59 p.m., U.S. Eastern Time, nine days after the test. If you are taking the SAT on a school day, you can choose the colleges, universities, or scholarship programs to send your four free score reports when you complete your answer sheet.

If you're eligible for an SAT fee waiver, you can send as many score reports as you want for free."

What this means to me is that when you register for an SAT test, you can add up to 4 schools on your list to get that test result sent to them for free. You can not use the free report option after you have taken the test, even an hour after you take the test. I do not believe if this is your 4th time to register, it means that you can get all your tests sent to 4 colleges including SAT#1, #2, or #3 plus the one you are taking. It just means that test #4 can be sent to 4 schools for free. If you need to send more than 1 SAT test to a school you will have to pay the $12 for each of their test score to be sent.

College Board has something called Score Choice and here is the link: This gives you the option of which scores to send to each college.

Hello. A free score report only includes your previous tests if you wish to add them. So, when you want to send your score report to a college, you need to select which scores you want to send. It could be just one or multiple ones. But, some colleges requires you to send them all your scores, which includes previous ones. Hope this helps you!
