 ACT Scores for Class of 2015 show readiness
 

The readiness of Linn-Mar's students - for college, for career and for work - is once again reflected by their ACT scores.

ACT results have been released for the Class of 2015 graduating seniors from Linn-Mar High School. With a record-making number of students having taken the exam - 349 students or 46 more students than the year before - the district composite score held at 24.5.

In fact, average ACT scores at Linn-Mar CSD were higher than state averages in every area:
• Tested Area; District Average; State Average
• English; 23.5; 21.6
• Mathematics; 24.5; 21.5
• Reading; 24.8; 22.7
• Science; 24.8; 22.3
• Composite; 24.5; 22.2

According to ACT findings, the percent of Linn-Mar's ACT-tested students ready for college-level coursework was also significantly higher than state percentages.

The ACT consists of curriculum-based tests of educational development in areas designed to measure the skills needed for success in first year college coursework.
