This database contains ACT scores for California school districts and schools.  The ACT is designed to assess high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. The ACT test covers four subject areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. Each subject area test receives a score ranging from 1 to 36.  Years reported refer to the first year of a traditional academic year, i.e., 2012 reflects test scores from the 2011-2012 academic year.  CDE reports the category "Average score" to zero decimal places in some years; other years contain two decimal places.  CDE began to report Average scores in reading, math, and science in 2018.


In addition, reported enrollment figures thru 2013 reflect only 12th grade; reported enrollment in 2014 reflects the entire school or district.  As a result, data from 2014 to the present may decrease sharply.
