TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A new report shows the percentage of Oklahoma’s 2015 graduating seniors who demonstrated college and career readiness on the ACT exam has remained static since last year.
The Tulsa World (http:// bit.ly/1LAsnPa ) reports that the number of the state’s 2015 graduates who met all four benchmarks in English, reading, science and math on the college entrance test stayed level for the second year in a row at 22 percent.
The state’s percentage of graduating test-takers who met the benchmarks previously had been steadily increasing from 17 percent in 2008.
According to the ACT’s annual Condition of College and Career Readiness report released Wednesday, 28 percent of ACT-tested 2015 graduate students nationally met all the benchmarks.
