MADISON, Wis. -Wisconsin retains its number two spot among states on the ACT college entrance exam.
The state's high school seniors scored an average composite of 22.2 out of a possible 36, ranking Wisconsin behind Minnesota. Seventy-three percent of Wisconsin seniors took the exam this year. The curriculum-based test measures students' readiness for the first year of college.
The ACT also sets minimum scores students should achieve in math, science, reading and English in order for them to be successful during their initial year in college. One in five 2014 graduates in Wisconsin met none of the readiness benchmarks.
The national average composite score is 21. Iowa tied with Ohio and Kansas this year for the number three slot.
