PHOENIX - A new standardized test shows that many high school students in Arizona aren't ready for college.
Arizona educators have received the first results from the test they hope will help students prepare for a four-year college and choose a career.
The Arizona Republic says the ACT Explore exam was given to a sampling of nearly 20,000 eighth-graders in January. Results show that although 62 percent of them plan to pursue a four-year degree, many aren't on track to pass a college-entrance exam.
The early results also show that less than a third are on track to be college-ready in math and just over a third are on track in reading. More than half are on pace in English, but only about one in 10 is on track in science.
