From Inside Higher Ed:
SAT results for the Class of 2014 show mixed – and very slight – changes from last year.
The average score in critical reading increased one point, while average scores in math and writing fell by one point. Scores have been either flat or slowly declining for the past several years, dropping 11 points in reading and seven points in math in the past decade. (The writing exam wasn’t introduced until nine years ago, in 2006, but scores have fallen in that category, too.)
Meanwhile, gaps in the performance of students from different socioeconomic and ethnic groups show no signs of closing.
