College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY. Admissions Testing Program.; Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ.
This report consists almost entirely of tables that provide mean scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and College Board Achievement Tests for New York high school seniors in 1991 and summarize information that students have provided about their high school academic achievement and their personal backgrounds. Tables are based on the latest test scores and background information that these graduating seniors have presented. Mean SAT scores are displayed for different portions of the testing population, with detailed information about students' academic preparation and the number of years of study in various subject areas. Test score distributions are presented in a format identical to that used in 1972 except for the introduction in 1990 of SAT scores at the 25th, 50th, and 75th percentiles. Information on characteristics of students' schools, derived from a school survey, is provided; and the 40 institutions that received the most score reports from students in the state are listed. A brief introduction and some pointers on using this report are included. (SLD)
