Percent of Spokane Students Taking the SAT

In Spokane, the percent of high school seniors taking the SAT exam has fallen sharply in the past few years. Elsewhere, the number of students taking the SAT, nationally, reached an all time high in 2007 and again in 2008.

In 2009 in Washington, 53% of graduating seniors had taken the SAT but just 38% in Spokane had done so:

“Average combined scores for the US and Washington were 1,016 and 1,055 respectively. In 2009, 53 percent of Seniors in the State took the test. Over the last seven years, combined SAT scores in Spokane County have been 1-17 points less than the statewide average and 23-41 points higher than the national average.”
