Lillian McCormack's curator insight, December 17, 2014 8:46 PM

This definitely helps me even though I have already taken my SAT. I am retaking my SAT this January just so I have a better shot into getting into the college I want. I have purchased an SAT Prep book and my friend has told me that I can use her online studying. Which will be very helpful in preparing for my next SAT test.

"To qualify for a national merit scholarship, students in different states have to take the same exam, but they don’t have to get the same scores to win."--Valerie Strauss

 

We know that it is impossible to compare schools and students in different states based on the results on state tests. For example, the highest performing district in one state had 67% of its student score at "proficient" or above, while one of the school identified for SIG funds as a "low-performing" school had 82% of its students score at "proficient" or above in reading. In another example, one of the lowest performing high schools in one student, would be among the top performing high schools in ten states.
