The College Readiness Benchmark Scores as reported by the ACT are defined as the minimum score needed on an ACT subject-area test to indicate a 50% chance of obtaining a B or higher or about a 75% chance of obtaining a C or higher in the corresponding credit-bearing college courses. These courses include English Composition, Algebra, Social Science and Biology. These scores are empirically derived based on the actual performance of students in college.
