The ACT / ACT WorkKeys
Beginning in spring 2015, all eleventh grade students will take The ACT® test  and ACT WorkKeys®- i.e., students in the third year after their initial enrollment in the ninth grade must take the assessments. The ACT is a tool that assesses readiness for college. The assessment is based on the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards which are empirically derived descriptions of essential skills and knowledge students need to know to be ready for college. Required by Act 200, ACT scores will be used for state and federal accountability. The ACT consists of four multiple-choice tests (English, mathematics, reading, science) and a writing test. For more information about the test click here.

ACT WorkKeys® is a job skills assessment. Students will be administered three timed assessments taking 45 minutes each: Reading for Information (33 items), Applied Mathematics (33 items), and Locating Information (38 items). Individual student reports include scale scores and a level score for each assessment. Students who successfully complete these three assessments may earn a National Career Readiness Certificate. Based on performance, certification is provided in platinum, gold, silver, and bronze levels.

The administration dates are:  The ACT will be on April 28, with the make-up date of May 12. ACT Workkeys will be April 29 with the make-up date of May 13. There is a FREE test prep link you can review for test questions - http://bit.ly/NpxhCV
