Just about one in five Washington seniors takes the ACT – the SAT”s slightly less famous cousin – but that group saw modest gains over the previous four years.&nbsp; Thirty-eight percent of test-takers met the college readiness standard in all four subjects tested: English, reading, math and science, up from 34 percent year before.</p> Wed, 22 Aug 2012 12:00:00 +0000 Gabriel Spitzer 6055 at http://www.kplu.org Wash. students inch upward in college readiness scores
