The SAT

The SAT is a standardized test often used in the college admissions process. Its' aim is to assess the student's readiness for college. The current test consists of two 800 point sections testing Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (ERW) and Mathematics. The highest composite score on the SAT is 1600. Most students take the test, which is offered several times per year, during their junior or senior year of high school. The district and state averages are included for comparison. State averages for SAT data are based on regular public schools and do not include private schools in the state.

The highest composite score on the SAT is 1600. For each of the two sections of the test, the highest score is 800.

Note: The new SAT data (as of 2017) cannot be compared to that of previous years because the redesigned SAT is a different assessment using a different scale.

In addition, these results may be incomplete and may not be representative of the make-up of the State, district, or school population.

State Goals

Federal law requires that each state report card include long-term goals and measurements of interim progress for all students and defined subgroups of students. This section reports the long-term goals and performance of all students statewide. Information on subgroup performance may be found in the "Download Data" section on the main page.
