SAT College Bound 1972-2013

Group Mean Scores for Maine College Bound Seniors

That is, each number represents the average (mean) of a group. For example, the average score for all Maine males taking the Critical Reading test in 1972 was 531.  All data has been adjusted by the College Board to compensate for changes in scoring over the period 1972-2013, making earlier and later scores comparable.

Note: For 1972–1986 a formula was applied to the original mean and standard deviation to convert the mean to the recentered scale. For 1987–1995 individual student scores were converted to the recentered scale and then the mean was recomputed. From 1996–1999, nearly all students received scores on the recentered scale. Any score on the original scale was converted to the recentered scale prior to computing the mean. From 2000–2013, all scores are reported on the recentered scale. Cohort data presented prior to 2007 include students testing through March of the senior year, while cohort data from 2007 to present include students testing through June. For further information see www.collegeboard.org/cbs.
