Juneau Congratulates Montana Student with Perfect ACT Score

 

HELENA – Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau today issued her congratulations to the only Montana student who earned a perfect score on the ACT test for the 2010-2011 school year. Laura Marsh from Capitol High School in Helena scored a perfect 36 on the test this year. 

“Laura should be very proud of her accomplishment. A perfect score on the ACT is not only an indicator of academic skill, but a reflection of hard work, dedication, and determination,” said Juneau.

 

In Montana, average ACT scores for all students have risen over the last five years from an average of 21 in 2005 to an average score of 22 in 2010. This year, 1,050 students earned a score of 27 or higher. 

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores.
