CHEYENNE – The Wyoming graduating class of 2016 had an average composite score of 20.0 on the ACT according to The Condition of College & Career Readiness 2016, released today by ACT, Inc.
“Just as we see and celebrate Wyoming students’ growth on the ACT and other statewide assessments, our placement among states reminds us that we aren’t there yet,” said State Superintendent Jillian Balow. “At this time, it’s important to remember this is one important measure among many, and is an opportunity for schools across our state to make adjustments that help ensure that more students are successful on the ACT.”
Wyoming state law requires all students to take the ACT as juniors. The results released today represent the most recent score for students that graduated in 2016. Beginning with the graduating class of 2013, all students whose scores are college reportable, both standard and extended time tests, are now included in the reports.
Wyoming is among 18 states that has results for 100 percent of graduating seniors.
