SAT Scores at NAIS Member Schools
Torres, Amada
Independent School, v74 n4 Sum 2015
Between March and June 2014, more than 1.67 million students from the 2014 graduating class took the SAT, marking a new participation record for the test. At the request of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the College Board created a special report that allows the association to compare how independent school students fared versus the overall student cohort taking the SAT. Graduating seniors at NAIS-member schools achieved substantially higher results than their peers, recording average scores of 588 in critical reading (same as in 2013), 603 in mathematics (one point above the average score in 2013), and 589 in writing (one point below the average score in 2013). While the higher results of NAIS-member school students are encouraging, a closer look at the results by gender, race/ethnicity, and income level paint a more interesting picture. This article offers 2014 SAT results for NAIS vs. National by race/ethnicity in critical reading, mathematics, and writing.
