The sooner you can measure students’ strengths, areas for growth, and personal interests, the better.

In this eBook, you’ll learn best practices for early student preparation, along with ACT solutions that other schools have had success with between grades 3 and 10.

Academic Factors + X Factors = College Readiness

Current gauges of college and career readiness tend to focus on academic preparation and achievement, but a mounting body of evidence shows that success in college and the workplace is multidimensional. Academics alone can’t prepare students for college. There are many “X Factors” that contribute to holistic preparation.

Considering all of these “X Factors” can give educators a more holistic approach to preparing students for future success.

In this eBook, we’ll explore each “X Factor” and introduce some ACT resources that can help your students get college-ready.
