More Students and Higher Scores for ACT

Original Article - Just a report. I wonder what kind of comments will show up

Summary goes here!

If college board have read the article College Science Success Linked To Math And Same-Subject Preparation, they should change their science section to include more subject related material. Currently, all you need to know to handle the science section is the basic science logic and some math. You don't really need subject specific knowledge. In principle, testing science logic is essential. The only problem I see is that it is testing something that is so basic that it does not measure subject specified material taught in high school and, therefore, missing measures that GPA is capable of - the efforts of students in mastering materials and also their readiness in taking more advanced courses. In a way, I think, this is why Asian higher ed students are entering the topic specified area earlier. They are tested on the subject specified material at the admission.
