The SAT scores of 11th graders in New Hampshire are up slightly from last year.

Preliminary data released this week shows New Hampshire’s high school juniors improved their scores in both the math and English portions of the College Board SAT.

Two-thirds met the state’s proficiency benchmark in English, while 44 percent met the benchmark in math.

This is the second year that the SAT has been used as the statewide assessment for 11th graders.

Under the new system, students take the popular college entrance exam during the school day and are able to send their scores to up to four colleges – all for free.

In a written statement, Department of Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut says the data will help New Hampshire schools continue to improve.
