The North Carolina 1994 Scholastic Aptitude Test Report.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Accountability Services/Research.
The 1994 report is the fifth annual report of North Carolina Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) results since special state reporting began in 1990. Information is available for the nation, the state, and the 119 school systems and 2 special schools in North Carolina. It is the third year that all SAT-takers previously had the opportunity to take the PSAT at state expense. It is also the first year that the state supported student participation in advanced placement courses in every school system. While the participation rate on the SAT remained the same as in the previous year, North Carolina students made a one-point gain in 1994 from the previous year. Since 1989, North Carolina is the only SAT state (at least 40% of graduating seniors taking the SAT) to have 5 consecutive years of improvement. In fact, in 10 of the last 11 years, the state's total SAT scores have increased from the previous year's score. In the last 5 years North Carolina increased its average SAT score by 24 points. Test result information is presented in 19 tables and 23 figures. (SLD)
