Colorado ACT Scores Improve Slightly

August 27, 2015

The percentage of Colorado high school graduates showing they’re ready for college inched up slightly this year, according to results of the latest ACT exams.

In 2015, 26 percent of Colorado high school graduates met college readiness benchmarks in all four areas of the widely used college entrance test: English, math, reading and science. That’s up 1 percentage point from last year. Nationwide, about 28 percent who took the test met all four benchmarks.

Every 11th-grade student in the state must take the exams whether or not they plan to attend college.
