2016 CHS ACT Overview
When looking at this data, an important piece to interpret is the number (or percent) of graduates who have taken an ACT. Again, Nebraska ranks very high with 88% of 2016 graduates that have taken an ACT compared to Eastern states that might have as few as 10-30%. As you can imagine, if a school (or state) has, say 50% of graduates take the ACT, chances are that they are high performing students. Whereas a state like Colorado, that is one of several states where 100% of graduates take the ACT, will typically have a lower overall average.
With that said, Chadron High School consistently has about 95% of graduating seniors that voluntarily taken the ACT. This past year was no different. Here's a summary of our data with comparisons to trends from past years that I've managed to find. Click here for Nebraska's Key Findings
2015 National Average: 20.8
