ACT scores dropped to lowest level in 10 years

ACT scores have dropped to their lowest level in 10 years.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, only 26% of ACT-tested students met all four ACT College Readiness Benchmarks this year, with half of underserved students (low-income, minority, and/or first-gen college students) meeting none of these benchmarks.

The takeaway? This was of course a particularly disruptive year. But this is also a deeply concerning sign that the current K12 learning reality may not be effectively preparing students for college success.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
