This year, Colorado has a lot more comprehensive data on students who took the SAT and PSAT tests in the spring of 2018.
Use Chalkbeat’s tool below to compare school results to each other or to statewide averages. This tool has results for every public school with ninth-, 10th-, and 11th-graders who took the SAT or PSAT test. It shows the mean score by grades, as well as a growth score.
The growth score is calculated by Colorado officials to show how much a student improved compared to the previous year, regardless of what their achievement was to begin with. Students with similar past achievement are grouped and ranked with a score from 1 to 99. A student with a growth score of 50 is considered to have made a year’s worth of academic progress in a year’s time, while a student with a lower score is considered to have made less than that.
Look back at 2017 results and our coverage here.
Editor’s note: Due to formatting problems, PSAT scores do not currently appear in this database. We are working to correct the problem.
