A story in the Sept. 18, 2013, issue of Education Week misstated the year that the Higher Education Act was last reauthorized. It was 2008.

A story about new ACT data in the Aug. 28, 2013, issue provided inaccurate composite test results for certain subgroups of students. For the class of 2013, the average score for Asian students was 23.5, for white students 22.2, for Pacific Islanders 19.5, for Latinos 18.8, for American Indians 18, and for African-American students 16.9. The five-year trend, meanwhile, shows Latino students scoring an average of 18.8 this year, representing a slight increase from 18.7 in 2009. In the same period, Asian students increased their scores on average from 23.2 to 23.5.
