ACT Testing – April 19, 2017
The ACT Test will be offered to ALL Junior students on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, during the school day. There is no fee for this testing session.
The ACT provides students with information to help in planning for the future using the ACT Interest Inventory, the Student Profile Section, a Career Map and the Career Readiness Indicator, and is used by colleges and university programs as an admissions assessment.
The ACT® test is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students’ academic readiness for college.
- The ACT motivates students to perform to their best ability and often results in increased college enrollment, especially for underrepresented students.
- Test scores reflect what students have learned throughout high school and provide colleges and universities with excellent information for recruiting, advising, placement, and retention.
- To support college and career planning, the ACT career exploration component helps students identify personally relevant career options.
Registration is online, by telephone, or by mailing a registration packet to ACT.
Scores range from 1 (low) to 36 (high) for each of the four tests and the Composite. The Composite score is the average of the four test scores, rounded to the nearest whole number. ACT scores are based on the number of questions answered correctly. Points are not deducted for wrong answers.
