DALLAS (AP) - Texas members of the high school class of 2011 have posted ACT college entrance exam scores slightly below the national average.

Officials with ACT Inc., the Iowa-based not-for-profit that administers the test, reported Wednesday that the nationwide average composite score was 21.1 on the 1-to-36 scale.

The Texas average composite score was 20.8, which is the same as last year.

Twenty-five percent of ACT test-takers across the country met the college-readiness standard in the four core subjects of English, math, reading and science. In Texas, the rate was 24 percent.
