The North Carolina 1991 Scholastic Aptitude Test Report: State, 129 School Systems and Two Special School Results.
Ward, Martha S.; Kirby, Kevin
In 1989, North Carolina's scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) were the lowest in the nation, with a total score of 836 for North Carolina compared to 903 for the nation. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction developed a five-point plan to address this situation. The SAT results for 1990 show an increase for North Carolina to an average total score of 841, while the national SAT scores dropped to 900. For 1990, North Carolina ranked above South Carolina and the District of Columbia and is now tied with Georgia. The trend continued in 1991, with a score increase as the national score dropped, and greater participation by North Carolina students (57%). This report contains the 1991 SAT scores of 129 school districts and 2 special schools. Sixteen tables contain scores for North Carolina and the nation. Districts with best performance are highlighted. Fourteen graphs illustrate SAT performance. (SLD)
