Their Journey. Many Paths.

Stand Up for Student Success

By breaking down barriers to access, ACT® District Testing improves your measures of success and raises student awareness—from test scores to college enrollment rates.

Taking the ACT test can help students open doors to their dream school.

We asked college and university admissions experts if they still find value in the solutions ACT offers to high school students. Here's what they had to say.

The Path to College and Career Success Starts Early

Success doesn’t happen in a year. It happens year after year. That’s why ACT offers a continuum of sequential assessments that prepares your students for a lifetime of success—in college and beyond. The tests in the ACT Assessment System have a common score scale, making it easy to track performance across tests, measure growth, and identify areas where students need work.

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
