Schedule for annual ACT Test Day - Tuesday, October 2, 2018
Posted on 09/27/2018

Dear Parent/Guardian:



The annual ACT Test Day is Tuesday, October 2, 2018.  All students in grades 8-12 will be participating in testing on this day.  Below is a description of the assessment that our students will be taking at each grade level.

 

  • Students in 9th grade will report to school to take the practice PSAT (The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test). The PSAT will provide feedback to students on their strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college and career pathways.  Students can then focus their preparation on areas that they could benefit most from with additional study or practice. The PSAT 8/9 allows teachers to use the results to guide students and help them develop personalized study plans.


  • Students in grades 10-11 will report to school to take the practice ACT.   This is a paper/pencil test that will be scored and results will be shared with teachers and students.  The report will identify students’ areas of strengths and weaknesses. Teachers and students can use this information to provide appropriate intervention and enrichment prior to the official test administered to all 11th graders on February 20, 2019.


  • Students in grade 12 (seniors) will report to school and take the ACT Plus Writing or WorkKeys Exam.  The ACT Plus Writing allows students to take the ACT test and potentially increase their overall composite or individual test scores. Students are considered college and career ready with an overall composite score of 21.  An increased test score is beneficial when applying for college. The ACT WorkKeys® assessments are the cornerstone of ACT workforce solutions. These assessments measure foundational skills required for success in the workplace and help measure the workplace skills that can affect job performance.


It is expected that all students in grades 9-12 report to school and take the assessment that is described above for their grade level.  They are to arrive at the regular school time, and the doors will open at

7:45 AM for breakfast.

The day will be shortened *October 2, 2018*.  Following the testing, students will have lunch before being dismissed from school.  Dismissal will begin at 1:30 PM and conclude by 2:00 PM.


Students who ride the van to school will be picked up and dropped off at their regular times unless parents make other arrangements for transportation with  school personnel.


If you have any questions, please call the school at 330.848.4141



Sincerely,




Kathryn Rodocker
