LISD Graduates ACT Scores: Above Average


LISD Graduates Score above State and National Averages on ACT

Leander ISD announced that composite scores on the ACT college-entrance exam continue to be higher than state and national averages. For 2014, the average ACT composite score (scale of 1 – 36) for an LISD graduate was 23.6, while the state and national average composite scores were 20.9 and 21.0 respectively.

ACT tests are administered for a number of subject areas including English, math, reading, science and writing (optional) in 2014:

  • English: LISD – 22.6; State – 19.8; National –  20.3
  • Math: LISD – 24.2; State – 21.4; National – 20.9
  • Reading: LISD – 23.8; State – 21.1; National -  21.3
  • Science: LISD – 23.4; State – 21.0; National – 20.8

The ACT also reports the percentage of students ready for college course-work in English composition, algebra, social science and biology. Forty-three percent of LISD ACT test-takers achieved the college-readiness standard in all four subjects, as compared with 26 percent meeting that standard at both the state and national levels.

The top five Texas universities selected by LISD ACT test-takers to receive these scores (in descending order) were: Texas A&M University, University of Texas at Austin, Texas State University, Texas Tech University and Baylor University.

For the first time, Leander ISD is offering an official ACT test for all interested juniors during the school day. Please mark your calendars for April 28, 2015 for this opportunity. Additional ACT and other college-readiness information and resources are available on district’s college- and career-readiness webpage.
