ACT results for the Minnesota high school students who graduated in 2005. With an average score of 22.3, Minnesota students posted the highest average score in the country among the 25 states where more than half of the graduating students took the ACT. Students taking rigorous high school courses score consistently better than those who do not.
In fall 2003, 65 percent of Minnesota's approximately 64,000 recent high school graduates attended a postsecondary education institution in Minnesota or elsewhere. Slightly more than 50 percent attended a Minnesota institution and approximately 15 percent attended out-of-state. The participation rates are up slightly from the previous year.
Generally speaking, the typical Minnesota undergraduate, in fall 2001, was a white (90 percent) female (55 percent) who was younger than 24 years old (73 percent) and attended full-time (66 percent). Minnesota undergraduates, however, are too diverse to be captured by any typical description.
