State-Funded ACT Tests

Summer 2019 act-sat vendor selection survey information for spring 2020 now posted

The vendor choice survey runs from August 14th to September 13th. Selections of vendors are made each year by the superintendent of each school district. The superintendent is contacted via ‘donotreply@ohio-k12.help’. They need to make sure they have a current email address in OEDS (OEDS.ContactUs@education.ohio.gov) and with the Ohio-K12 Help Desk (Support@ohio-k12.help). To assist with the vendor selection process, each vendor has created a presentation (see links below) appraising districts of what each vendor has to offer.


State law requires districts and community schools to administer the state-funded ACT or SAT to all grade 11 students in the spring of the school year. Each year, districts and schools will select the test to administer to their juniors. | Notice to JVSD & ESC superintendents
