Early Indicator of College & Career Readiness

  • PreACT assessments offer students an early experience with ACT test items, provide a predicted ACT test score, and offers a wealth of information to help students get the start they need to be college-ready.

    • Test results can be used as a measure of college readiness that predicts how students may perform in entry-level college English, math, and science courses.
    • Most students who take the exam and/or practice tests improve their scores each time.
    • Some students who perform well on college entrance exams also receive scholarship money (though not for the practice ACT).
    • The Pre-ACT gauges how students stack up against grade-level peers across the nation and identifies strengths and growth areas.
