ACT has released their annual report The Condition of College & Career Readiness 2012, focusing on the scores earned by graduating seniors of the class of 2012 who took the ACT college and career readiness exam in high school. Among the results -- 28 percent did not meet any of the four ACT College Readiness Benchmarks in English, mathematics, reading and science, suggesting they are likely to struggle in first-year college courses in those subject areas. Only 25 percent met all four ACT benchmarks. College readiness levels remain particularly low among African American and Hispanic students.
