ACT District Testing Program Details

During the 2023-2024 school year, ACT will offer four test dates: one in the fall and three in the spring. Select the date(s) that work best for your district.

Districts may choose from two test options. All participating schools in a district must test using the same test option—either the ACT or the ACT with writing.

The district test coordinator will be our primary contact for the ACT District Testing program. During the implementation phase, we ask that this coordinator serve as the liaison between schools, district officials, and ACT.

During subsequent phases (school establishment, training, materials delivery, administration, and some post-exam activities), we will work directly with the schools. From time to time, we may still ask for the coordinator’s assistance.

Once testing is completed, we will send the district test coordinator all district-level reports and an invoice based on the number of students tested and the type of test administered.

District test coordinators may also be the school test coordinator at individual schools participating in District testing.
