Preact for tenth graders - Saturday, February 10, 2018 - 7:45 AM

The PreACT is a practice version of the ACT, designed for tenth graders. There is an English usage section, a math section, a reading section and a science reasoning section as well as a career interest inventory. After ACT scores the assessments, students will receive a PreACT score, an ACT predictive score and results of a career interest inventory that is part of the assessment. Students will get back a full score report with an itemized answer sheet as well as their test book for review. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to get practice on a high stakes type of assessment without the high stakes!

The test is being given on Saturday, February 10 beginning at 7:45 AM.

The registration deadline is Friday, February 2 at 2:30. The cost has not yet been determined.

Students must sign up in the Counseling Center with cash or a check.

Eleventh graders:  If you missed the chance to take the Practice ACT in the spring (or you just want some more practice) you too may take the PreACT this fall.  Bring the registration form to the Counseling Center to sign up.
