ACT Assessment 1999 Results. National. Summary Report.
American Coll. Testing Program, Iowa City, IA.
This report provides information about the performance of 1998 graduating seniors nationwide in the United States who took the ACT Assessment as sophomores, juniors, or seniors. Caution in applying these results is advised because these ACT-tested seniors may not be representative of the total population of graduating seniors. Information is provided according to the level of high school course work completed. Average scores are reported for students who reported completing a core high school program of recommended courses and for students who did not complete a core program. In general, students who completed a core program tended to earn higher average scores (average composite score of 22.0) than students who did not complete core courses (average composite score of 19.1). This association holds true across racial and ethnic groups. Tables present trends in ACT composite scores for all students and for ethnic groups. (Contains seven tables.) (SLD)
