Laramie, Wy – Wyoming high school graduates who completed a core curriculum of classes did far better on the A-C-T than those who didn't. Students who did the core curriculum scored a 22-point-three on average. Those who didn't got an average of 19-point-seven.
The University of Wyoming's Rollin Abernethy says more students took the test this year than last year, but many of those people were not prepared.
More students that haven't really taken the courses, their performance is not at the same level as those that took the courses.
The A-C-T core curriculum includes four years of English and three years of math, science and social studies. Abernethy says that's similar to Wyoming's success curriculum.
