State SAT Scores Continue to Drop

The College Board has reported Massachusetts SAT scores continue to slip.

According to figures, the more than 60,000 Massachusetts students who took the college-entrance exam scored an average of 501 on the critical reading portion of the test – down from 502 in 2005. The mean mathematics score was 515, which was the same as last year, but below the 2005 average of 520.

Many students seek test preparation assistance. Education Perspective offers one-on-one, targeted SAT preparation. We work with students on the two crucial components that WILL make the difference – knowledge and test-taking strategy.

Be careful when considering programs that promise a specific point increase. No one can guarantee an improved score. A tutor can certainly work with a student on the content and formulate a test-taking strategy. If a student commits to the tutor sessions, then the score will reflect this.
