The ACT® test, a curriculum-based educational and career planning tool, is the leading college readiness assessment in the United States. As the capstone of college and career readiness solutions, the ACT is based on what students learn in high school. Did you know that your school can offer an “official” test administration of the ACT during regular school hours on a weekday? Since 2007, students in more than 47 states have earned college-reportable scores taking the ACT in their own classrooms in a familiar and safe environment that removes the influence of taking the ACT at a location unfamiliar to them and with proctors the students do not know.
Participating in ACT District testing (on-campus testing) provides your students with the opportunity to assess their academic skills and level of college readiness in a familiar environment. Having all students participate raises college awareness and exposure among all students, rather than only self-selected, college-bound students. For some students, the experience may help them realize they have the skills to perform college-level coursework.
