SAT Math Scores Hit Record High
— reported by click2houston.com
The high school class of 2005 recorded what officials say are the highest-ever average scores on the math portion of the SAT college entrance exam, a modest jump from last year that comes amid conflicting data on the math skills of American students.
Seniors who finished high school last spring scored 520 out of a possible 800 on the math section, two points higher than the class of 2004. Average scores on the verbal section were unchanged at 508, according to results released Tuesday by the College Board, the nonprofit organization that owns the SAT.
