Math test scores drop for Class of 2013



SALEM, Ore. — Oregon’s SAT results showed a drop in math scores for the class of 2013.

That’s the lowest among public high school students on the math section of the college entrance exam in the last 12 years.

Experts on the test say many students get good grades in math classes by getting homework in and by participating in class, but they don’t master and retain the material.
