CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Students who graduated from Wyoming high schools earlier this year scored an average of 20.2 on the ACT college entrance test.

That is a slight increase from the 20.0 average recorded by the 2016 graduating class.

State schools Superintendent Jillian Balow says the ACT is one of the measures that helps educators see how well they are preparing our students.

Balow notes that Wyoming is in the top half of states that give the ACT to all of students.

Wyoming law requires all students to take the ACT as high school juniors. The results released Thursday represent the most recent score for students that graduated in 2017.
