Rice Lake ACT scores improve

Scores among Rice Lake students taking the ACT college admission exam improved slightly in this year compared to last, but lagged behind scores for the previous 6 years.
The average score of 22.3 was higher than the state average of 22.1 and the national average of 20.9. It was also higher than averages in most other Barron County school districts, with the exception of the Cameron district, where students averaged a score of 23.3.
In the years 2005-06 through 2010-11, Rice Lake ACT scores ranged from 22.3 to a high of 23.5.
The Rice Lake score this year didn't compare well with most other Big Rivers Conference schools. Only Menomonie, with an average score of 22.1 scored lower.
Hudson students posted the best average at 24.0, following by River Falls and Eau Claire at 23.2 and Chippewa Falls and Superior at 22.6. The scores from Hudson and River Falls were particularly impressive in that both schools exceeded a testing rate of 77%, compared to Rice Lake and Cameron where just over 56% of eligible students were tested.
Wisconsin as a whole recorded the second highest ACT test scores in the nation, just behind Minnesota and tied with Iowa.
Starting in the 2014-2015 school year, all 11th-graders in Wisconsin's public schools will be required to take the ACT.
