​​​The system of intervention outlined here is designed for students who do not meet benchmark on the state assessments, specifically ACT.

Measuring College Readiness

Kentucky requires that students meet Kentucky System-wide Benchmarks in order to be deemed college ready. (These benchmark scores are listed below.) For students who do not meet those benchmarks, an intervention is required by law (KRS 158.6453, KRS 158.6459, 704 KAR 3:305) to help enable students to meet subsequent college readiness indicators in order to be able to enter college without the need for developmental or remedial coursework.


Kentucky System Wide Benchmarks for ACT are:

  • English - 18

  • Mathematics - 19

  • Reading - 20
