3. A vanishingly small number.

The same thing happened in the '80s. The average declined. But the scores of the usual cohort that took the test continued to increase.

The average SAT score is an average.

The percentage of AfAm and Latino takers has increased. They score lower than white and Asian test takers on average. The change in mix has been ongoing and accounts pretty much for the downdrift in test scores.
