ACT scores show a higher percentage of Iowa's 2013 high school graduates demonstrated readiness for college-level coursework than 2012 graduates.

In scores released Wednesday, 32 percent of the Iowa 2013 graduates were deemed college-ready in English, reading, math and science. That's up 2 percentage points from 30 percent in 2012.

Other findings are less rosy. The report shows that minority students were less likely than white students to take the test and that scores of African-American and Hispanic students were lower than those of fellow students.

Iowa's state composite score for 2013 was 22.1, compared with the national average of 20.9.
