The ACT (Grade 11)
- Because the ACT is a curriculum-based assessment, test results are used to improve school and district curriculum, improve instructional practices, make educational interventions, and assist in educational and career planning.
Why the ACT for all juniors?
- The ACT is accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the United States.
- Schoolwide testing raises college awareness and exposure among all students, rather than just self-selected, college-bound students.
- ACT Test results indicate the number of students who are ready for college-level coursework. The Benchmarks are the minimum scores on the ACT English, Reading, Mathematics and Science tests to indicate at least a 50 percent change of students obtaining a B or higher or a 75 percent change of obtaining a C or higher in a corresponding, credit-bearing college course.
- Offers education and career planning sections.
