Students Are Not College-Ready According to Common Standards Analysis

Yesterday, a report was released identifying how many of the nation’s students presently meet the Common Standards based on their performance on the ACT assessment. Surprisingly, in an analysis performed by ACT Inc. the scores showed that 38 percent of 11th graders hit the proficient range in reading, and the results were worse in mathematics than in English/language arts. The study also showed a trend of racial and ethnic minority students performing lower than their white peers.
