This document is a sample of the type of report the American College Testing Program sends high schools reflecting the characteristics of students from the school who took the ACT Assessment during their sophomore, junior, or senior years and who graduated in 1998. Depending on the proportion of students at the school who took the ACT Assessment, the report may or may not reflect the characteristics of the school's college bound students. The report begins with a summary of the 5-year trend history of college-bound students who took the ACT Assessment. Tables compare the average ACT scores of students who took the recommended core curriculum with those of students who did not. Other tables provide average ACT scores by academic preparation for different ethnic groups and by ability level for difference ethnic groups. Student satisfaction with the individual high school is reported. Other tables report mean scores and standard deviations for males and females and for different patterns of academic preparation. Information is also provided about student background characteristics, planned educational majors, and vocational choices. An appendix provides additional information about the testing program and the recommended core curriculum. Included with this document are a press release and the "Standards and Transition" report, a guide that describes what students in various score ranges are likely to know and be able to do. (Contains 15 tables.) (SLD)
