Christian County Public School officials released latest ACT testing data this morning with School Superintendent Mary Ann Gemmill saying she is pleased with the findings.
This year’s senior class took the ACT as juniors in March 2011 with students able to take the exam on scheduled Saturdays throughout the year.
District Assessment Coordinator Tracey Leath gave a brief overview of the average scores.
Hopkinsville High School also showed gain in reading and went from 19.0 to 19.3 and the district’s composite score of 18.3 remained the same as last year.
School officials say the school district’s scores remained the same overall, with the exception of reading, which showed a .1 percent decrease.
When comparing this year’s senior graduating class ACT results to their results as juniors, the data indicates those students made gains in every subject and in their composite score.
School officials say the biggest gain from this year to last year from Christian County High School is in the area of English, with an improvement of 1.2 percent and Hopkinsville High School showing a .8 percent gain in the area of English.
Ms. Leath says the gains students have made in their ACT test scores shows students and teachers worked really hard to ensure they achieved their best scores.
Ms. Gemmill says we’re steadily improving and that school officials expect to see gains in the future.
