Improving ACT and SAT Scores: Making Progress, Facing Challenges. A Focus Report in the "Challenge to Lead" Series
Jackson, Jenny; Lord, Joan
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
The Southern Regional Education Board's (SREB) "Challenge to Lead" Goals for Education call for more students to take college admission tests, to score higher on those tests and for SREB states to reduce gaps in test scores among all groups of students. For states, achieving higher statewide scores is one sign that more students can go on to college. For students, higher individual scores are critical to increasing opportunities for college acceptance and scholarships. This report looks at the underlying factors driving a state's college admission test scores, helps policymakers and education leaders understand the most recent test results, and makes recommendations for improvement. (Contains 9 tables and 1 footnote.)
