Utah Students Lead the Nation in ACT Test Scores

Posted Thursday, August 22nd 2013 @ 10am  by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

Utah students have earned the highest average ACT score, among the nine states that have near-full participation in the exam.

But it's tight race.

The average Utah score, this year, was 20.7 (out of 36).  Illinois students' average score was 20.6.  And neighboring Colorado was 20.4.

Our students have been participating in a pilot program, that encourages all high schoolers to take the ACT.
