NOTE: Data are for seniors who took the SAT any time during high school (through March of their senior year). If a student took a test more than once, the most recent score was used. The SAT was formerly known as the Scholastic Assessment Test and the Scholastic Aptitude Test. Possible scores on each part of the SAT range from 200 to 800. The critical reading section was formerly known as the verbal section. The writing section was introduced in March 2005; however, the first aggregate data on the writing section was reported in 2006. Test-takers were asked to self-identify a single racial/ethnic group. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
