Maine High School Assessment /SAT

As part of Maine's response to the No Child Left Behind legislation, since 2006 all Maine students in their 3rd year of high school have been required to take SAT tests in critical reading, writing, and mathematics.  The lone exception was in 2015, when the State of Maine joined two dozen other states in requiring that schools assess students using the Smarter Balanced test.  Maine returned to the SAT requirement for third year high school students in 2016.

In the charts below, you will find the percentage of students who "meet" or "exceed" the standard set by the Maine Department of Education in each year of testing.
