ACT participation and scores keep rising

The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) is reporting that Washington’s Class of 2014 have the right to brag about their American College Test scores (ACT).

Our state’s average composite score is 23, which is the nation’s seventh highest. Four content areas make up the composite score: English, reading, math and science. Scores are scaled from 1 (lowest) to 36 (highest).

Washington students have scored above the national average on the ACT for over a decade. And participation continues to grow as 351 more 2014 high school seniors took the test than in 2013.
