Where can I find good evidence for the SAT essay?

Does spelling matter on the SAT Essay?

I have been practicing SAT essay timing, and noticed that my spelling is really bad when I go back to review. How much can misspelling words lower my essay score? Should I try to use simple words that I know I can spell correctly?

Can I use my old SAT essay scores if I take the new SAT?

I took the old SAT with essay and scored a 10 both times. I'm happy with these 10's and don't want to relearn the new SAT essay style. Can I take the new SAT without the essay and report my old SAT essay scores with it?

What happens to my essay score if I don't finish in time?
