American Indian Student Readiness: The ACT 2013 Study


Each year, ACT provides an analysis of the college and career readiness of US high school graduates based on ACT® college readiness assessment results from the high school graduating class.

 ACT is pleased to expand on this important research with an in-depth look at the academic readiness of American Indian students. Key report findings include:

*       A large percentage of American Indian students (86%) report that they aspire to earn a post-secondary degree.

*       52% of American Indian students met none of the four ACT College Readiness Benchmarks.

*       Only 18% of American Indian students met at least three of the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks.

*       Fewer American Indian students immediately enroll in post-secondary institutions (54%) compared to any other racial/ethnic group.

This report shines a light on the need to improve college and career readiness for American Indian students while also addressing policies to assist these students with the challenges they may face. Here is The Condition of College & Career Readiness 2013: American Indian Students, and here is ACT Profile Report for AI/AN Students 2013.
