SAT Achievement

About this Indicator

The proportion of graduates taking the SAT who meet college readiness benchmarks provides a key measure of the academic preparation of college-bound students. Benchmark scores in Evidence-Based Writing and Math delineate a 75 percent likelihood of attaining at least a “C” in first-year college-level courses.[1]
