New York City students followed statewide patterns on the SAT and AP college prep exams, according to College Board data released today.
We had a more diverse pool of test-takers than last year — more black and Hispanic students took both the SAT and AP exams, and more passed the AP; lower SAT scores on average since last year; and a higher (though still dismally low) number of students passing the AP exams.
The city Department of Education summed up the results in a PDF (embedded below the jump). I asked for a more specific breakdown — average scores from past years and average scores broken down by race — and will provide that when it arrives. You can read the national results here and the New York results here. (Would that we already had the forthcoming IBO education team to give us the straight story from the get-go!)
