EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The EVSC got a report card of how students fared on last year's SAT.  

Throughout the five high schools in the corporation, around 250 students took the SAT last year.

The total score for both reading and math was 1016.  

That composite score beats the state's average by 13 points and ranks equally with how the nation performed on the test.

While the school corporation beat the state's score, spokesperson Marsha Jackson said this year's reading is four points lower than last years score, and math dropped one point, but she said the school is constantly working to keep the numbers up.

"We always want to see the scores going up every year, and that is something that we always strive for and it's significant of how they test and how they have received their education," Jackson said. "So, it's something that we always look at, but that in itself dropping four points is not statistically significant, but it's something that we would like to always see improve."

Including the writing portion of the test, the grand total is 1507, down seven points from last year's class.
