Really? I'm Hispanic, and the first time I took this test I got a 27. Second time a 29. Looks like I'm actually helping to pull up the average.

Shiprock still holds the title in NM of a perfect score but the ACT gods denied the poor student. Its all a bunch of Bull = testing students, ranking them, etc. In the real world you work as a team and succeed as team. I hold my workers accountable as a team. When attending a University, I've seen these so call high score students fail in college so many times. Its the parents and family support that can do much better than any test.

Tests are a measure of a student's ability. A measure, not the only, not the final, not always even the best measure. I graduated honors in high school and had a 27 on the ACT (did very poor on the SAT) and had a really hard time my first semester and had a few classes I needed to retake. I went on to graduate college with honors. A test measures how a person is doing that day - not much or less information is gleaned.

How come our local schools use the ACT when the rest of the country seems to be on the SAT???

Anyone know?

Our clan meetings are on Thursday's; it's true they do bring down the scores. Just like how touching a black person cause cancer...
