Pre-ID Student Identification Labels
Pre-ID Student Identification Labels for the 2015–2016 Testing Year
ACT Explore and ACT Plan are no longer commercially available for purchase. ACT will support ACT Explore and ACT Plan after June 2014 only where pre-existing contractual obligations necessitate it. If your school or district is testing under a special contract, you may utilize ACT’s Pre-ID services.
Use of Pre-ID labels improves accuracy of student demographics and reduces administration time. This service is available free of charge. Labels will be produced from a file your district or school provides to ACT. Printed Pre-ID labels will be mailed in a separate shipment from the test materials.
ACT staff will perform the data cleansing (validation) process according to the rules defined in the "File Layout" tab. Please review this information.
If you have any questions regarding ACT rules for validation, please contact ACT Customer Services at the number listed below.
As of January 4, 2016, the ACT Explore and ACT Plan Pre-ID templates will no longer be available on this website. You may still order Pre-ID labels by calling Customer Services at 877.789.2925. Press 2 for College and Career Readiness and then press 3 for assistance with your Pre-ID file. The deadline for submitting Pre-ID files to ACT is May 13, 2016.
