Salt Lake City–City Academy students who took the ACT test received high marks when compared with other Utah charter schools, according to the State Charter School Board. (The ACT test is a standardized admissions test required by many colleges and universities in the United States.) In fact, the Board reported that City Academy had the highest relative number of students to meet all four ACT College Readiness Benchmarks.
According to the ACT’s website, “The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks are the minimum ACT college readiness assessment scores required for students to have a high probability of success in credit-bearing college courses—English Composition, social sciences courses, College Algebra, or Biology.”
The website adds, “Students who meet a Benchmark on the ACT have approximately a 50 percent chance of earning a B or better and approximately a 75 percent chance of earning a C or better in the corresponding college course or courses.”
The ACT subject area tests include English, Reading, Mathematics and Science. ACT test scores range from a low of 1 to a high of 36. Students typically take the ACT test in their junior and/or senior year of high school. The ACT Test Benchmark scores are English 18, Reading 22, Mathematics 22 and Science 23.
