The Wauneta-Palisade students scored very well on their 2013 ACT tests. W-P students had a composite average score of 22.2, compared to the state average of 21.5.
Students in last year’s junior and senior classes took the test, 11 students total.
W-P superintendent Randy Geier was very proud of the scores, “The composite score of 22.2 reflects a positive light regarding the type of education our students receive. The recipe for this type of success is a combination of an excellent teaching staff along with a solid core of good students who are not afraid to study hard. Obviously, it was not an accident our students scored well on their ACT tests, I am very proud of them!”
In 2011, Nebraska seniors’ average score was 22.1 while the national average was 21.1.
In 2012, 16,581 Nebraska students were tested. Their average was 22.0.
The maximum score possible is 36. Fewer than one-tenth of one percent of students across the country achieve a perfect score.
The ACT measures the college preparedness of high school students in English, reading, math and science.
