In Connecticut, 45 percent of SAT test-takers met the 1550 benchmark, an increase of one percentage point from 2012.
Overall, the average SAT scores for Connecticut public school students remained steady year-over-year, with a mean of 1506 in 2013.
Slight improvements were made in both the critical reading content area — which increased by one point to 499 — and the writing content area, which increased by two points to 504. The average score in the mathematics content area dropped one point to 503.
"We're pleased that more Connecticut public school students took the SAT this year than last year,” State Department of Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor said. “We must enable our students not only to compete for admission but also to complete with confidence, advancing into their careers with the skills that the information age and the knowledge economy require."
