Existing Funding Formula

  • Enhanced focus on student retention
  • Focus on adult enrollment of students age 25 and up at community colleges.

Career Readiness Certificate
  • ACT has profiled more than 12,000 individual jobs across the country to determine the skills and skill levels needed to succeed in them. According to our findings, three skills are highly important to most jobs:
  • Reading for Information
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Locating Information
  • A solid foundation of these three skills is essential for a well-qualified workforce.
  • A recent American Management Association survey found that 38 percent of job applicants taking employer-administered tests lacked the reading and math skills needed in the jobs for which they applied. Information retrieval and problem-solving skills—what the Locating Information test measures—are highly relevant in our information-based business culture.
