Average S.C. SAT score drops by 7 points

Sep 14, 2011 11:22:00 AM - thestate.com
S.C. high school students' SAT scores dropped last year, but their performance on college-level Advanced Placement course exams improved.

That's according to new data released today by the S.C. Department of Education.

The average score of S.C. graduating seniors taking the SAT, a test that gauges college readiness, is 1,436 -- down seven points from the previous year. That compares with the national average score of 1,500 -- down six points.

Broken down by test sections, S.C. seniors scored 482 on the critical reading portion of the test, 490 in math and 464 in writing. The national average in those sections is 497 on reading, 514 on math, and 489 on writing.

State Superintendent of Education Mick Zais cited as a particular concern the state’s lagging scores in critical reading and writing.
