ACT Average Composite by State: 2000 ACT-Tested Graduates.
American Coll. Testing Program, Iowa City, IA.
This table contains average composite scores by state for high school graduates who took the ACT Assessment in 2000. For each state the percentage of graduates taking the ACT Assessment and the average composite score are given, with the same information for those who completed the recommended core curriculum and those who did not, as well as for those students for whom there was no course completion data. An attachment, titled "Cautions on the Use of State Aggregate ACT Scores," explains why the list of average scores should not be interpreted as providing grounds for an explicit or implicit ranking of the various states' educational systems. Students who take the ACT are self-selected and do not represent the entire student population. (SLD)
