Educational Resources During COVID-19

ACT is committed to serving community needs during this challenging time. That’s why we’re offering free digital learning resources to assist students, teachers, and schools impacted by COVID-19. 

Check out to find resources to share with your students:

  • Free Kaplan® Live Online Test Prep
  • ACT® Academy™
  • American College Application Campaign’s College Research Worksheet• 
  • ACT Voice-Based Assistant
  • Stress Management Video Series

Through June 30 we’re also giving educators free access to icurio, a classroom subscription providing access to more than 360,000 curated, vetted and maintained standards-aligned resources. 

ACT’s SEL Curricula and Assessment (Mawi™ Learning and Tessera®) can help parents and educators navigate everything from home learning to how to talk to students about COVID-19, and deal with challenges and questions that may come from that. 

As always, we’re here to help you find success, no matter your circumstances.

Interactive Career Pathway Data

Using data from the Condition of Career Pathway Readiness in the United States 2019, ACT has developed an interactive tool to help high school students and adults understand their career options based on their skills and determine the types of jobs available to them.  

You can share this dashboard with students to help them navigate career opportunities, including future job openings and salary information, alongside the benchmarks for each of the top occupation openings.
