2023 ACT ResultsThe Georgia Department of Education has released Newton County School System’s (NCSS) district and school-level ACT Scores for the 2022-2023 school year. As with their state and national counterparts, NCSS district scores decreased slightly compared to 2022, when the average composite was 18.9.

Unlike the SAT, a reasoning test that measures critical thinking skills and assesses how well a student analyzes and solves problems, the ACT is a series of curriculum-based, multiple-choice tests that cover content knowledge in four basic skill areas: English (College English Composition), Math (College Algebra), Reading (College Social Science), and Science (College Biology). Students also receive a composite score on the exam, which is scored on a scale from 0 to 36. The ACT also has an optional writing test.

“Recognizing the important role the ACT plays in the college admissions process at some colleges and universities, we will continue to work hard to prepare our students across the academic spectrum,” said Benjamin Roundtree, Interim Superintendent. “Additionally, we remain committed to strengthening the professional learning offerings to our administrators, teachers, and instructional paraprofessionals to make sure they are equipped to continue to provide the very best support to our students.”
