What Are We Learning?
The ACT Benchmarks
are important for ALL Students.
Students who score more than 2
points below the Explore readiness
benchmark scores rarely catch up
and often do not graduate.
What Are We Learning?
It is important that students catch up
as soon as possible.
Students who score more than two
points below the Explore readiness
benchmark score should receive
extensive interventions.
What Are We Learning?
Tennessee must more than double
the rate at which students earn a
postsecondary credential for our
families to be sustained.
Tennessee must develop a variety of
seamless paths from the middle
grades through high school to
postsecondary completion.
