State-Funded ACT Tests

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. | ACT Practice Tests


COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS TEST SELECTION SURVEY FOR ALL DISTRICTS FOR SPRING 2019 TEST ADMINISTRATION

On Aug. 15, 2018, districts will receive a survey asking them to select the college and career readiness test (ACT or SAT) their district or school will administer in spring 2019. All districts/schools must respond to the District Selection Survey (ACT or SAT) for spring 2019 between Aug. 15 and Sept. 14, 2018.

If a JVSD or career center will completely facilitate the registering, administration and ordering of materials from ACT (referred to as Option 1), the JVSD or career center must indicate its decision and supply an organizational file by Oct. 12 to ACT at statetesting@act.org. If it will only administer the test (referred to as Option 2), it will work directly with the home school district(s).
