SAT scores are reported for the previous school year's graduating class. The average score is the mean of the scores obtained on the test component being measured. The ceiling for each component is a score of 600.
The percent of students scoring in certain ranges in the SAT reading and math tests are indicators of their level of their academic skills and their potential for future educational opportunities. Educational opportunities and achievment are strongly correlated with employment opportunities and other measures of well-being.
The data is derived from the Connecticut Department of Education's Connecticut Education Data and Research (CEDAR) site (http://www.csde.state.ct.us/public/cedar/index.htm).
