ACT scores improve for Oregon students

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

Results from the ACT college entrance exam show improvement in the college readiness of Oregon's graduating seniors.

Thirty-two percent of Oregon ACT-takers showed they were ready for college across all four subjects, slightly better than the previous graduating class.

The four tests are scored on a scale of 1 to 36, and most colleges use the average of the four scores in admissions.

The composite score for Oregon students in the class of 2015 improved to 21.7 out of 36 - higher than the national composite score of 20.8.

Thirteen Oregon students achieved a perfect 36.
