SAT Results for WCPSS 1994 Graduates. Testing Bulletin.
After 3 years of dramatic gains, the average Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores for the Wake County (North Carolina) Public Schools stayed essentially level for 1994 graduates. The scores did reflect a one point drop in the average total score, which is not considered significant. The leveling off matches a similar trend for the entire state. Wake County's average SAT score places it above the state's average scores, and above many states nationwide. When only states for which SAT scores are available for at least 40% of graduating seniors are considered, Wake County scores above Oregon, which is in first place. Ten tables and three figures illustrate test results and comparative information for the rest of the state. (SLD)
