Many Indiana High School Students May Not be Ready For College Classes

Last updated on Saturday, August 24, 2013

(UNDATED) - Indiana’s high schoolers do better than the rest of the nation, but most students taking the ACT are not ready for college classes.

That's according to the company that makes the test.

The testing company says 31-percent of high school students who take the ACT are not prepared to take college-level courses in at least one of the four subjects covered - math, reading and writing, science and social studies.

The company determines this through a formula that pegs college readiness to a certain ACT score for each subject.

The report says fewer than one-third of students nationwide, at least those who took the ACT, are ready for all of their college courses.
