ab: Reviews evidence of studentsâ€™ increased math course-taking in the
American College Testing database, based on systematic 10\% samples of
all students with valid ACT composite scores in 1987, 1990, 1993, and
1996 graduating classes. Students generally took more math courses in
1996. Since 1987, females increased math course taking and ACT test
scores more than did males. (12 references) (ERIC)
