The College Readiness Benchmark Scores as reported by the ACT are defined as the minimum score needed on an ACT subject-area test to indicate a 50% chance of obtaining a B or higher or about a 75% chance of obtaining a C or higher in corresponding credit-bearing college courses. These courses include English Composition, Algebra, Social Science, and Biology. These scores are empirically derived based on the actual performance of students in college.

At NSHE institutions, ACT scores for placement into a college-level English or Mathematics course are based on the ACT College Readiness Benchmark Scores of 18 for English and 22 for Mathematics. In order to validate the ACT College Readiness Benchmark Scores at the state level, the NPWR ACT Benchmark Report provides, by state and district, the post-secondary performance of Nevada public high school graduates in remedial and college-level courses based on the ACT scores from the senior year administration of the ACT assessment. ACT scores used in this report are provided by the Nevada Department of Education. If a student took the ACT assessment more than once during the senior year, this report selects for the higher ACT score.
The report will have the following filters pre-applied when it opens:
- Graduation Year: 2016
- Subject Area : English (excluding the Science Breakdown and Footnotes tab)
