Class of 2015 DeKalb County School System SAT Scores

The Georgia Department of Education has released the 2015 SAT Scores: http://www.gadoe.org/External-Affairs-and-Policy/communications/Documents/2015%20SAT-%20school%20level.xlsx

Many DCSS schools saw tremendous gains from 2014 to 2015.  While nationwide and in the State of Georgia participation in the SAT increased, the number of DCSS students taking the SAT significantly decreased.  Any ideas?

  1. I believe 2014 was the year that Dekalb offered the SAT for free on a school day--so many more students took the test.

  2. That's right, I forgot about that. That would explain the significant difference in number of test-takers.
