How It Works

ACT EIS Data Sets

ACT EIS provides information about more than four million ACT® college readiness assessment–tested and ACT Plan®â€“tested students. The following data sets are available:

  • ACT EIS Class of 2015 with Yield. This is the largest and most commonly used data set for enrollment management activities. It contains information on ACT-tested students from the high school class of 2015 and includes yield rates for your institution.
  • ACT EIS Class of 2016. With data for those students who took the ACT assessment prior to their senior year and are now seniors, this data is especially useful for institutions in states where the ACT is administered to all high school juniors.
  • ACT EIS Class of 2017. This option contains data for those students who completed the ACT Plan assessment during the 2014–2015 school year.

Also available:

  • ACT EIS Class of 2014 Data with Yield and Retention. Extend the power and range of ACT EIS by adding retention rates to the information about the 2014 graduating class cohort.
