Louisiana’s average score on a test of college readiness dipped for the second consecutive year, and remains among the lowest in the nation.

However, state Superintendent of Education John White told reporters Tuesday that the drop again stems largely from a change in state policy and is more than offset by additional students qualifying for college.

“Opportunity for young people is more important than what the average score is,” White said.

The exam is called the ACT and it reflects how students fared on questions about English, math, reading and science.

Louisiana’s composite average for public and private students is 19.2, down from 19.5 last year and 20.3 the year before.
