Complete ACT data

For ACT results for 2008 click HERE.

Once the page loads, you can click on WA and do a .pdf download of the complete WA state report.

Of interest is the fact that only 17% of WA seniors have ACT scores
and only 53% of WA seniors have SAT scores. WA participation rates are low.
See page 6 where only 61% of that 17% are ready for college algebra.
On page 17 while only 61% were ready for college algebra for Black students it was 19% and for Hispanics it was 27%.

1% of WA students tested planned to major in Math. That group had the highest ACT composite average score of all majors classified (page 24).

Course pattern information is on page 22.

Excellent information that you are providing - the key to this puzzle lies in the quality of the output - presently the only thing we can trust are SAT and ACT numbers. That's how you show improvement, not something so asinine as the WASL. Thanks for sharing this data.
