On February 23, the South Central junior class will be taking the junior class, state-wide ACT. EHOVE juniors will join with the rest of their class at South Central High School and spend the morning taking the ACT, which consists of 4 sections: Math, English, Reading, and Science. In addition to preparations made by teachers in their classes, there are a few other preparations that could be beneficial for testing day. First, juniors should be sure to go to bed early and get adequate rest the couple of nights before the test. On the morning of the test, juniors should eat breakfast, and dress in layers to keep comfortable while testing. Smart/apple watches are not allowed in the testing room, however, non-"smart" watches are fine. Any student wanting to bring water will have to keep the bottle under their seat and sealed shut. Students need to bring their own personal graphing calculator or make arrangements to borrow a calculator from a teacher ahead of time. Additionally, students will need number 2 pencils and a snack to eat during the testing break.
This is the one free ACT test that the State provides to students and families. Students are always welcome to register to take the ACT at any point through the official website, Act.org
The following is a link that has ACT practice tests. It lets students know how many questions the actual test has, and how many minutes there are to complete it. This is a timed test, so students should practice timing themselves as they work through the questions.
