Discus: What Are My Chances?: January 2004 Archive: ACT Related Research (I need assistance)

For my Research ADV class I have been studying the art of standardized testing, and its correlation with State Education.
Here's where you can help. I need a Math ACT score from each time you've taken the ACT and which Math classes you had taken up to that point and the grades you received.
For example, if you took the ACT twice and got a 29 in Math once and a 30 the other time, your response would look like this.

First:29 Classes: Algebra (A-) Geometry (B+) Trigonometry (B)

Second-30 Classes: Same classes as above.

Your gender and state would also be beneficial

Female
IL

First: 25 Geometry (A,A) Algebra II (B,B) Trigonometry (B-)

Second: 32 Geometry (A,A) Algebra II (B,B) Trigonometry (B) Analytic Geometry (C) Calculus (A)

[trig and analyt are semester courses at my school, so just count them together as precalc if you want. i took one semester of calc at a community college the summer before i got the 32]

I can't give you an ACT score. However, if you are looking for how the math courses you take correlates with the average ACT score, the ACT actually does that correlation every year; go here for high school senior class of 2003:
