What is College Readiness?
College Readiness refers to the level of student preparation needed to be ready to succeed – without remediation – in an introductory level course at a two or four-year institution, trade school, or technical school. A College Readiness Benchmark Score is the minimum score needed on an ACT subject-area test to indicate a 50% chance of obtaining a B or higher or about a 75% chance of obtaining a C or high in the corresponding credit-bearing college courses.
The corresponding credit-bearing college course used to determine College Readiness Benchmark Scores…
- –English = College English Composition
- –Math = College Algebra
- –Reading = Social Studies
- –Science = Biology
These scores were derived based on the actual performance of students in these college courses.
