Maps are great visuals to help us see information at a glance. One such map showing ACT and SAT Scores Composite is available to compare scores in all 50 states. It’s really interesting to look at and study this map. Since I’m from Texas, I will use my home state as an example. According to the map, Texas scores are higher for the ACT than the SAT. However, all of the states bordering Texas score higher on the SAT than the ACT. Like Texas, both the east and west coasts score better on the ACT than the SAT.
It’s interesting to note individual states and regions of the country as well. Maybe the scores for the ACT Test and the SAT Test reveal some possibilities as to which tests are stressed in school. Which test does your home state score higher on according to the composite scores?
