College Entrance Examinations, 1981/1982. ACT & CEEB Testing.
The American College Testing Program (ACT) and the Admission Testing Program of the College Entrance Examination Board are programs in which a large number of Albuquerque Public School (APS) students voluntarily participate. A summary of test data for participating APS students is provided here. For the 1981-82 school year, the scores of APS students on the ACT compare very well with the national norms. Ten-year trends of APS and national composite scores, APS and national test results, scores for boys and girls, scores according to high school curriculum, grade level of APS students at time of testing, percent of APS seniors tested, and characteristics of APS students taking the test are reported for the ACT program. Although the large majority of college-bound students in New Mexico take the ACT, several hundred APS students choose to take the College Board's Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) each year. Both math and verbal SAT scores of APS students were above national averages. Three-year trends in APS and national scores; and APS, national, regional, and state scores are provided for the SAT. ACT and SAT information by high school, and the states where students plan to attend college are also provided. (BW)
