“I am pleased to see the hard work of Georgia’s teachers, students, parents, and partners in education paying off,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “This is just one measure of achievement, but it’s a signal that more students are prepared for the future, and that’s something to celebrate. As we continue to realign our focus and pursue policies that prepare children to learn, live, and lead in the future, I believe we’ll see continued increases in SAT scores and other indicators.”
On the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10, 40,330 Georgia eleventh graders took the test and recorded a mean total score of 1030 – higher than the national mean of 1009. Georgia juniors recorded a mean score of 519 in evidence-based reading and writing and 510 in math, compared to the national mean of 507 in ERW and 502 in math.
