THE ISSAQUAH PRESS WEDNESDAY9 AUGUST 26, 2009 B5 Issaquah students score well on ACT exams This year, 381 Issaquah students took the American College Test exam and scored the highest of any other testing group for the dis- trict to date. This year's students also far-ex- ceeded state and national averages for students taking the exam. The ACT is a curriculum-based exam and is primarily used for ad- mission into colleges and universi- ties by measuring a student's readiness for collegiate-level coursework. In recent years, Washington stu- dents have led the nation in ACT and Scholastic Assessment Test scores, another college entrance exam. Washington students tied with Rhode Island for seventh among states with students who scored well on the exams. It is the sixth year Washington students have scored above average on the exam. Washington finished behind states like Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont. In Washington, Issaquah's stu- dents have continued to score well above the state and national averages.
