Kansas Education Commissioner Applauds New ACT Score Plans

The Kansas Department of Education announced this week that high school students will now receive their projected ACT college-entrance exam scores along with their state test results. New research indicates that scores on the state's math and English tests can help predict student performance on the ACT college entrance exam. State Education Commissioner Randy Watson says the move reflects the higher goals the state is projecting for every student in Kansas.

Dr. Watson says the department would like students to receive similar data on other tests as well, such as the SAT college entrance exam. Education officials say they hope the new information will help parents and students make decisions about which courses to take in high school.
