Holdzkom, David; Gilleland, Kevin
Wake County Public School System
Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) students continue to fare well on the SAT test as compared with students in the state and nation. While there was a decline in average test scores in 2009-10 as compared with the prior year, the posted scores continue a trend of measurable improvement over time. Over the past 20 years, the average SAT combined score (mathematics and critical reading) for WCPSS students has moved from 1007 to 1067. Importantly, all major ethnic groups have seen improvement trends and have average scores significantly higher than similar groups in the state and nation. The WCPSS' students' participation rate improved over 2008-09, which suggests that a larger portion of WCPSS seniors have intentions of attending college.
