imagesScholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) graders in Pennsylvania can expect a pay raise in 2013. A median pay raise for SAT graders is predicted to be 2.95 percent for 2013. That number is down from 2012 when the median pay raise was 4.8 percent. The median expected salary range for SAT graders in 2013 was $44580 annually or $21.43 an hour. Meanwhile, SAT test scores slipped slightly both nationally and state-wide by a two and one point margin respectively. Pennsylvania students remain slightly behind the national average in SAT scores as well. Pennsylvanian students fared slightly better with ACT scores, which were slightly above the national average. ACT tests receive low participation rates from high school students while SATs continue to be taken steadily by about 74 percent of eligible students in Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania Education Department hoped to raise scores even higher by implementing a new, non-optional test called the Keystone Exam that tests students upon completion of courses such as algebra, biology and literature.
