Columbus, GA-The Muscogee County School District 2018 SAT results were recently released in an announcement by the Georgia Department of Education. The results mark improvements in the District’s composite and reading and writing scores. The District’s reading and writing scores exceeded both the state and national averages for the first time. In addition, the District noted an increase in the number of test takers year-to-date.
This is the second year’s results of the newest version of the SAT revised in 2017. The redesigned SAT features items to test higher-level logic and reasoning skills in reading, writing and math and a different scoring scale from previous versions.
Each year there is a different cohort of students who take the SAT, which makes it difficult to draw a comparison from one year to the next. In addition, results are contingent upon the level of coursework students pursue prior to the test administration. Since the SAT and American College Testing (ACT) allow students to sit for the exam regardless of coursework, results can vary from year to year.
