APS Ranks High on College Entrance Exams.
APS in Action, Win 1984
This document discusses the scores of Albuquerque (New Mexico) Public Schools (APS) students on the American College Test (ACT) and the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) during the 1982-83 school year. Graphs, a map, and a question and answer format are used to report the information. Comparisons of average ACT scores and average SAT scores are drawn for three categories: (1) students across the nation; (2) in the state of New Mexico; and (3) students enrolled in APS. Two charts indicate the mean SAT and ACT scores in rank order for large school districts across the nation, showing Albuquerque's relative placement. APS students achieved scores consistently higher than the national and state averages. The factors which most significantly contributed to the success of APS students on the college entrance examinations are discussed. (DWH)
