STEM interest and readiness

Many 2016 high school graduates are interested in STEM majors and careers, but few are well prepared to succeed in first-year college STEM courses. The report found that 48% of the nearly 2.1 million 2016 U.S. high school graduates who took the ACT test had an interest in STEM majors or careers; however, only 26 percent of those graduates met or surpassed the ACT College Readiness Benchmark in STEM.
