Friday College Town Hall

wamcIllustrationIconIn Friday College Town Hall, we post a question about college, and you leave an answer in the comment field.

Today’s question:

A new study shows that 28% of students didn’t score high enough to meet any of the ACT standards for expected college success.

How well can a standardized test predict college success? Do schools need to improve or do the tests need to change?
