Utah average ACT score drops, still tops national average
SALT LAKE CITY — Scores from the 2022 ACT test are in, and while Utah’s average composite score went down from 20.3 to 19.9, it remains on top of the national average.
Of the states with at least 90% of students taking the test, Utah had the highest average score in all subjects and the highest percentage of student meeting the college benchmarks.
“We are pleased to see a rebound, even if not a full rebound, in the number of Utah students
taking the ACT,” State Superintendent of Public Instruction Sydnee Dickson said. “It’s important for us as
a state to see how college-ready our students are. It is even more important that each student in the
state see how college-ready she or he is.”
Though Utah remains just above it, the national average composite score of 19.8 is the lowest national average score since 1991.
Data for recent 5-year trends show that the average tends to decrease a little each year, but decreased more in 2022 than it has in recent years.
