2010 SAT Scores by State

EDITORS NOTE: Click here for the 2014 SAT Scores by state

The College Board has released the results of the 2010 SAT. We prepared a chart of SAT performance by state, including all 50 states, a comparison of states with high participation, and Pennsylvania's performance throughout the years.

The original SAT data is available from the College Board site, including their Pennsylvania SAT profile and their 2010 SAT trends.

As noted previously, Pennsylvania lags the nation in total SAT score, even among states with high participation rates among students (states with low participation rates tend to score highly, as most students in those states take the ACT, and only very competitive college-bound students take the SAT).

The Allegheny Institute has already weighed in on how Pennsylvania's increased education spending has not resulted in gains in SAT scores.
