What Principals are Saying About ACT District Testing

How principals are using the ACT to improve and track students' readiness for college and career.

"One of the reasons I don't pay much attention to SAT is I don't know what their scores mean. The thing I like about ACT: At our school, we don't focus a lot on scores - we focus a lot more on benchmarks because we can tell what that means."

-Alan Schotts, Career Center Coordinator
Cody High School, Cody, Wyoming

"The ACT is a good baseline for us to help with remediation and scheduling for students. ACT is easy to administer, and students understand the data very easily."

-Principal, Kentucky
