By national standards, they're not very good at all. They could be much better and there is no reason why they aren't. For example, only 53% of High School seniors in Texas took the SATs in 2001, compared to a high of 82% in Connecticut.
At the school where I graduated, more than 90% took the SATs, just as many took the PSATs, there were mandatory tutorials to help prepare for the tests and many students took the tests twice.
