The 2013 report found that fewer than half of American students are well prepared for college or careers after graduating high school, with only 39 percent of ACT tested 2013 graduates meeting three or more of the four ACT college readiness benchmarks. Thirty one percent did not meet any of the benchmarks.
The ACT annual report determines college readiness by a student's score on each of the four subject tests that make up the ACT assessment English, math, reading and science. The "readiness benchmarks" specify the minimum score students must earn on each test to have a 75 percent chance of earning a C or higher in a typical college level course.
Nationwide, 64 percent of all ACT tested 2013 graduates met the readiness benchmark in English. Fourty four percent met the benchmark in reading and math, while just 36 percent met the science benchmark.

O'Dea said that while the Granite State has done a lot in recent years to boost college readiness among students, it is clear that additional work still can be done.

"A student academically can have the knowledge they need for a job, or for college, but you can't hold a job unless you have the soft skills, the ability to self advocate," O'Dea said."Starting at a young age, we really need to encourage the student to have these interactions with others, to speak up for themselves and let people know what they need."

"As someone once said, talent alone gets you nowhere," Gustafson said. "You need to work hard. Even if you were prepared well, you need to work to do what you were prepared to do."
Only 26 percent of test takers met the readiness benchmark in all four subject areas.
When it comes to predicting a student's college success, their performance in high school is not always the best indicator.
