The Condition of College & Career Readiness, 2013
ACT, Inc.
For nearly a decade, ACT has measured student progress in the context of college readiness. "The Condition of College & Career Readiness" is ACT's annual report on the college readiness of the most recent high school graduating class. The data herein provide insights to catalyze and guide efforts to improve college and career readiness for the next generation of young people now making their way through the US education system. As more students take the ACT® college readiness assessment--54% of all 2013 high school graduates--ACT's college readiness data better reflect the entire US graduating class, providing a glimpse of the emerging educational pipeline. Progressive modifications reflected in this 2013 "Condition" report include: (1) Reformatting the ACT College Readiness Standards; (2) Updating the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks; and (3) Changing ACT aggregate reporting practices to now include college-reportable scores for accommodated students.
