The report provides information on the college readiness of graduating seniors in 2010 who took the ACT in high school. Data included ACT test scores and the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks. The ACT defines College Readiness Benchmark as the minimum score required on the subject-area test to indicate likeliness of success in the corresponding first-year credit-bearing college course (50% chance of obtaining a B or higher or approximately a 75% chance of obtaining a C or higher). Although more Hispanic students are taking the test, performance in both areas for Hispanic students still lags significantly behind white and Asian students.
