Oklahoma ACT Scores
The ACT assessment measures high school students' general educational development and their readiness to complete college-level work. The ACT is a multiple-choice test that encompasses four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading and science.

While the ACT is only one measure of college readiness (others being high school rank, high school GPA and completion of a college preparatory curriculum), the ACT provides a common measure, not only among Oklahoma high schools but also with national standards.

Oklahoma ACT scores have remained relatively flat at a composite score of 21 since 2008. A larger proportion of Oklahoma students are taking the test than ever before. Since 2006 the number of high school students taking the ACT has grown by more than 1,900 students, and more than 73 percent of students took the test in 2010.
