ACT Study Shows Most Students Cannot Meet Standards For College Success

Most students have far to go before they master the skills and knowledge outlined in the new common standards, concludes an ACT Inc. report. The study found that only one-third to one-half of 11th graders are proficient in the content and skills that the common core standards specify as necessary in math and English/language arts for access to good jobs or success in entry-level, credit-bearing college courses.  Forty states have now approved the common core standards, but implementation will be difficult.
