The Benchmarks are scores on the ACT subject-area tests that represent the
level of achievement required for students to have a 50% chance of obtaining
a B or higher or about a 75% chance of obtaining a C or higher in
corresponding credit-bearing first-year college courses. These college courses
include English composition, college algebra, introductory social science
courses, and biology. The Benchmarks represent a typical set of expectations.
