BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Louisiana's ACT scores were slightly down from last year.  The average Act and composite scores for students were either the same or slightly down from 2013 to 2014 depending on how you calculate them.  

State education officials say that more students are taking the college prep test now though which affects the average and more of them are scoring well enough to qualify for TOPS.  All public high schools were required to take the ACT exam last year.
