Portland Public Schools has posted the 2012 “District Highlight Report” it received from the College Board. It includes data on the foreign language “SAT Subject Tests,” as well a general SAT data.
The College Board also give Advanced Placement tests. It describes the differences between the AP tests and the SAT Subject tests as follows (here):
SAT Subject Tests are high school–level tests, reflecting high school curricula. These tests indicate a student’s readiness to take college-level courses in specific subject areas. AP® Exams, however, assess a student’s college-level knowledge, skills and abilities, learned in the corresponding AP courses. As a result, the topics covered on SAT Subject Tests may differ from those covered on AP Exams, with AP Exams typically covering more advanced topics with a greater depth that is more reflective of a college-level course.
While AP exams are also an excellent way to demonstrate understanding in specific subject areas, not all students have an opportunity to take AP courses across a broad range of subjects and in time to meet college admission deadlines. For students who lack access to AP and still wish to demonstrate subject knowledge, the Subject Tests offer this opportunity.
In general, students who have taken more rigorous courses (e.g., honors, AP, IB, dual enrollment) are better prepared for the SAT Subject Tests. However, advanced or college-level course work is not required to do well on the SAT Subject Tests.
Page 16 of the District Highlight Report gives the foreign language SAT Subject Test data for 2008 through 2012 (here).
Looking at just 2012 and just the number of test takers, and not their mean scores, one sees for the whole State of Oregon.
