SAT scores stuck below average

This yearâ??s SAT scores are out, and
there isnâ??t much to cheer about. Indiana saw math scores improve slightly, but reading and writing scores dropped a few points.
All three remain below national averages.

Educators say the tests are harder. And more students are taking them, suggesting lower-caliber students are dragging down
the scores.

How do you see it? Do a higher number of test takers in Indiana excuse the below-average scores? Are SAT scores overrated
as a measure of student progress?
