Rochester Public Schools ACT Results Are Released

Rochester Public Schools ACT Results Are Released

Rochester, MN - The Minnesota Department of Education has released the results of the ACT-tested graduates for the graduating class of 2018. Minnesota students again topped the nation on the ACT college entrance exam, among the 19 states where 90 percent or more students took the college entrance exam, earning a composite score of 21.3. At Rochester Public Schools (RPS), the average composite score exceeds the state average, with a 22.3 score. This is a slight increase from 2017.

 Here’s a look at the graduating class of 2018’s ACT results:

  • In the area of English, 63% of RPS students met or exceeded the ACT Benchmark Score of 18, compared to the state of Minnesota’s average of 60%. A benchmark score is the minimum score needed on an ACT subject-area test to indicate a 50% chance of obtaining a B or higher, or about a 75% chance of obtaining a C or higher in corresponding credit-bearing college courses.
  • In the area of math, 52% of RPS students taking the ACT met or exceeded the benchmark score, compared to the state average of 47%. The ACT benchmark for mathematics is 22.
  • In the area of reading, RPS exceeded the state average by 7%, with 55% of RPS students meeting the benchmark score of 22.
  • In the area of science, 47% of RPS students taking the ACT met or exceeded the benchmark score, compared with the state average of 42%. The ACT benchmark for science is 23.

The ACT data is a measurement of college and career readiness. It measures whether students are meeting college and career benchmarks. “The data gives us a good look at how we are preparing students for college and career readiness,” said Superintendent Munoz. “We also use the ACT data trends beginning in Kindergarten, as we are committed to college and career preparedness for all of our students.”
