Wisconsin students’ average ACT scores increased this year over 2010.

The Associated Press reports the average composite score for Wisconsin students who graduated this spring was 22.2 out of 36. That’s up from 21.1 in 2010. The national average this year was 21.1.

Seventy-one percent of Wisconsin students who graduated took the test. Among the 27 states where at least 50 percent of students took the test, Wisconsin’s score was third behind Minnesota at 22.9 and Iowa at 22.3.

The results were released Wednesday by the independent, nonprofit ACT.
