Building and Measuring Essential Knowledge and Skills

Improving performance on the ACT and readiness for college and career

A student’s performance on the ACT is heavily influenced by their achievement in core high school courses. It’s also a predictor of how well positioned the student is to succeed after graduation. But how can educators both boost and assess their students’ achievement in the years leading up to the ACT—and align what they’re teaching to the skills students need? 

ACT QualityCore helps increase the rigor of curriculum, instruction, and assessment for 12 core high school courses. When students excel in ACT QualityCore courses, they demonstrate stronger academic growth throughout high school—and better scores on the ACT.

ACT QualityCore helps:

  • Improve student performance on the ACT and in core high school courses.
  • Enhance instruction with resources teachers can use to add rigor to course content.
  • Align assessment with the skills identified as essential to student success.

By using ACT QualityCore to increase the quality and intensity of core courses, you help students improve their performance throughout high school and position themselves for success after it.
