  • ACT ACT Test February 27th

    On Tuesday, February 27th, junior students will be taking the State/District ACT test during periods 1-6 at MWHS.  It is a full length, official ACT with Writing test that will yield a college reportable score.  

     

     However, it is different from a National ACT Test in three important ways:

    1. Students do not need to register for this test as they will for any other ACT they take.  Registration is done in school with all students about one week prior to testing.

    2. Testing will take place during the school day rather than on a Saturday morning.  

    3. It will only cost $20.  Any national ACT with Writing will cost students $58.50.  Confidential fee waivers are available to students who qualify for free/reduced lunch.

     

    Students planning to apply to 4-year colleges will be able to use their score to satisfy college application requirements.  Students planning to apply to 2-year schools may be able to use their score to substitute for otherwise required placement testing.  And, students who are unsure of their plans for after high school will be able to use their score as a data point to help them determine an appropriate plan.  We are excited to be able to offer this opportunity to all junior students.

    Some important information for you to be aware of:

    • The $20 payment will be collected through the Skyward Family Access Fee Management tool.  This is the same process that is used to pay for class fees.  Simply login into Skyward Family Access, click on the Fee Management link on the left side and submit payment.  A confidential fee waiver will be applied to all students who qualify for free/reduced lunch.  The payment deadline is Friday, February 9th.

    • A resource titled Preparing for the ACT (paper) pdf is available to students on this website. It includes test taking strategies, test overview information and practice multiple choice tests.

    • Score reports will be mailed home 5-8 weeks after the answer documents are received by ACT.  

    • 10th grade students will be taking the PreAct (PACT) on the same day, so part of the high school building will be shut down to create a quiet and secure testing environment for all students.  

     

    If you have any questions, please contact your child's school counselor.
