How’d Kentucky students do on the ACT?

Kentucky ACT scores

Kentucky’s class of 2019 scored an average of 19.8 on the ACT, about a full point below the national average –  20.7.

But the test maker recommends comparing scores only among states with similar testing rates. (If everyone takes the test, the average score is lower than when only college-bound students take it.)

All Kentucky high school juniors take the ACT – making us one of 15 states with a 100 percent testing rate. (Nationwide, only about 50 percent of students take it.)

Kentucky’s score is middle-of-the-pack for those 15 states, as four did better, and two had the same score.
