It looks like the addition of the writing portion of the SAT has helped students at my alma mater, Karns City High School, go from just about average to slightly above every year. Either that or the addition is hurting students across the state.
And, as a whole, scores are up in verbal and math from the year I took the SATs. Go Gremlins, or something.
NOTES: The writing portion of the SAT was added in March 2005. State average calculated by taking the average total of each Pennsylvania high school’s average verbal, math, and writing scores for each year. SOURCE: Pennsylvania Department of Education
// This is my first attempt at using Google Chart Tools and the first step in a bigger idea I have inspired by Michelle Minkoff’s presentation at this year’s ONA conference. I had to find some data to teach myself the basics, first.
