STEM Education in the U.S.: Where We Are and What We Can Do.

March 19, 2018

ACT’s annual Condition of STEM reports provide essential national data on student interest and achievement in STEM subjects. The report also challenges local, state, and national policymakers to meet, within the next four years, a number of actionable goals for improving the STEM pipeline.

ACT’s fifth and latest edition of its annual STEM report focuses on the more than 2 million students in the 2017 US high school graduating class—60 percent of all the nation’s graduates—who took the ACT® test. The ACT is the only college readiness exam in the US with a full science test and also the only one that reports a STEM score and a STEM College Readiness Benchmark score indicating students’ readiness to succeed in college courses such as calculus, biology, chemistry and physics, which are typically required for a college STEM-related major.
