While the rate is below the national average, scores have increased significantly for the second consecutive year. Research demonstrates that the best predictor of college success is a rigorous high school curriculum, and it is anticipated that ACT scores will continue to increase with the implementation of the 21st Century Skills curriculum by the State Department of Education. Of West Virginia students who enrolled in college for Fall 2006, the average ACT score was 21.6. information ins this document evaluates statistical data relating to: (1) Statewide Public Higher Education (Preparation; Participation; Affordability; Outcomes); (2) Baccalaureate and Graduate Institutions (Preparation; Participation; Affordability; Workforce Development; Outcomes); and (3) Community and Technical College System (Preparation; Participation; Affordability; Workforce Development; Outcomes).
