The 1,539 members of Naperville Unit District 203's class of 2013 scored a composite 24.8 on the ACT college entrance exam, according to data released this week by the testing organization.
That score is down from District 203's 25.3 score last year, but composite results this year included scores of students who were allowed extra time to complete the test. The change in results reporting makes the scores more reflective of student performance, but also makes it difficult to compare to previous years, district officials said.
Without the scores of 109 students who were given extra time, the composite score rises to 25.4, a .1 increase from last year.
The score exceeds the state average of 20.6 and the national average of 20.9.
