Participation rates increase across all racial subgroups
More Washington students than ever are enrolling in college-level courses and taking college entrance exams, according to results released today by the College Board. Every racial subgroup saw increased SAT, PSAT and AP test-taking rates in 2014.
The state’s student performance remained relatively strong. SAT and PSAT saw a slight downturn in overall scores, but the number of AP scores of at least “3” — the score needed to earn college credit — increased 5.7 percent.
“I am proud of our student performance,” State Superintendent Randy Dorn said. “And the fact that so many students are taking steps to prepare themselves for college is encouraging. I hope this trend continues.”
