College Board assessment results reveal greater participation, big gaps
from THE Journal
The College Board has unveiled its program results for the year, which encompass multiple assessments: the PSAT/NMSQT, SAT and AP exams. The national numbers show that across the board more students are participating. However; some racial and ethnic groups show considerably less readiness for college and career than others. For the SAT, an indicator of college readiness, 1.7 million students from the class of 2015 took the test, up from 1.67 million students in 2014. Nearly 42 percent of 2015 SAT participants met the SAT College and Career Readiness Benchmark, signifying that they're more likely to enroll in a four-year college and graduate on time than those who don't meet the benchmark.
