2007 ACT National and State Scores

2007 ACT National and State Scores
Source: ACT, Inc.
From press release:

The national average ACT composite score rose in 2007 for the third time in the past five years. The percentage of U.S. high school graduates who are ready for college-level coursework continued to grow as well.

Members of the high school graduating class of 2007 who took the ACT—a record 1.3 million students—earned an average composite score of 21.2 on the college admission and placement exam, up from 20.8 in 2003 and from 21.1 last year. Scores improved on all four required subject-area tests included in the exam—English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1 to 36, with the composite score being the average of the four individual required test scores.

The results also suggest a growing number of U.S. high school graduates are prepared for college-level coursework. The percentage of ACT-tested graduates who met or surpassed ACT's College Readiness Benchmarks, indicating they are ready to succeed in specific first-year credit-bearing college courses, has improved over the past five years in all four subject areas.
