Graduating Class Results - 2015-2016

We analyzed results from 21 schools that used Analyze-Ed's ACT pareto analysis for the first time with their graduating class of 2016. A total of 5,700 students graduted from these schools in 2016. The average class size was 272 students and 25.9% of the students were classified as economically disadvantaged (ED).

These 21 schools reported ACT scores for 94% of their graduating class in 2016 compared to 79% of their graduating class in 2015. In general, increased reporting is expected to result in a reduction in composite score but these schools encourage more students to take the test on the state mandated testing date.

The 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 data was compiled from the state department of education website. All these schools implemented the Analyze-Ed ACT pareto analysis based improvement program during the student's junior year of enrollment and in most cases over 90% of the students participated in the assessment.

If you are interested in learning more about any of these schools in the study and how our program helped them please write to us. Many of these administrators will be happy to talk to you about the use of the ACT pareto analysis and how they structure their improvement program.
