Average SAT scores for the 12th-grade SAT  test-taking population, by subject, race/ethnicity, and sex:  2011

1 Total includes other racial/ethnic groups not shown separately in the figure.
NOTE: Data are for seniors who took the SAT anytime during high school (through March of their senior year). If a student took a test more than once, the most recent score was used. Possible scores on each part of the SAT range from 200 to 800. The critical reading section was formerly known as the verbal section. Test-takers were asked to self-identify a single racial/ethnic group, which included Mexican American, Puerto Rican, and Other Hispanic; however, for the purpose of this report these groups have been combined into Hispanic using a weighted average. Separate estimates for Asians and Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders were not available. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
