Percent of total public school students enrolled in Grades 4 and 8 scoring at the “proficient level”
(i.e., Levels 3 and 4 combined) on the ACT Aspire test in mathematics and reading. Level 3 and 4 scores are defined as those which meet or exceed benchmark scores for the specified subject and grade level. Students who exceed benchmark scores are considered on target for college readiness by the time they reach the 11th grade.
Test scores for 2013-14 are the first year in this testing series.
Special tabulations provided by the Alabama State Department of Education.
