Although the [[Kentucky Education Reform Act]] of 1990 has now been in force for nearly two decades, the state still cannot provide high accuracy graduation rate data. The current graduation rate calculation officially in use by the [[Kentucky Department of Education]] was officially audited in late 2006 by the [[Kentucky Auditor of Public Accounts]] and found to have significant errors. Dropouts were being under-reported and graduation rates were inflated. In addition, the audit disclosed that students who dropped out over the summer between school terms were not being captured in the student tracking software then in use.

ACT College Entrance Test Results for 2009 High School Graduates

The ACT, Incorporated, released its annual report on test performance for the High School Class of 2009 on August 19, 2009. For the first time, 100 percent of Kentucky’s graduates took the ACT, which makes score comparisons both to other states and to Kentucky’s past performance problematic. This section will explain some of the issues and present the state’s 2009 high school graduates' performance in context. Another section of the Wiki will deal with the separate ACT report for Kentucky's 11th grade testing, which is an entirely different data set.
