HS Graduating Class of 2000 National Report. The High School Profile Report, Normative Data. A Description of the Academic Abilities and Nonacademic Characteristics of Your ACT Tested 2000 Graduates.
American Coll. Testing Program, Iowa City, IA.
This document is a sample of the type of report that the American College Testing (ACT) Program sends high schools to reflect the characteristics of students from the schools who took the ACT Assessment during their sophomore, junior, or senior years and who graduated in 2000. Depending on the proportion of students who took the ACT Assessment, the data 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 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 ACT scores by academic preparation for different ethnic groups and by ability level for different 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 contains additional information about the testing process and the recommended core curriculum. Included with this document is the "Standards for Transition Summary Profile," a guide that describes what students in various score ranges are likely to know and be able to do. (Contains 15 tables.)
