Wisconsin trails its neighbor for highest ACT scores; higher speed limit gets cool reception; more state news
This year’s Wisconsin high school graduates tied with Iowa for the nation’s second-highest score on the ACT or American College Testing entrance exam. Neighboring Minnesota had the top score among states where more than half of all students took the ACT.
The top three states had identical rankings a year ago. Minnesota students averaged 23 of a possible 36. Wisconsin averaged 22.1 -- same as a year ago, which was the lowest since 1996.
