Hispanic students taking ACT up 40% since 2001

The Nashville City Paper reported that Hispanics are taking the ACT in greater numbers - up 40 percent since 2001 - which indicates that more Hispanic students are considering the option of college.

SAT or ACT scores are required by many colleges as a prerequisite to admission.

Knoxville's reports that Tennessee's Hispanic students improved their scores faster than the state and national averages and most other ethnic groups in Tennessee:

"[W]hile Hispanic average scores have jumped point-9 in the past five years, the state gained point-5 and the national average actually lost ground."

"Scores by Hispanic students are gaining more ground than any other ethnic group in the state, except Asians."
