The ACT Test for Postsecondary Professionals
Help Your Students Get to the Finish Line
When students are ready for college, dropout rates and remediation costs are lower and more students persist in graduating. ACT research related to college readiness and success is rich and extensive and offers insights your institution can use.
ACT National Curriculum Survey
The ACT National Curriculum Survey is a nationwide survey of educational practices and expectations conducted every three to five years by ACT. The survey collects data about what entering college students should know and be able to do to be ready for college-level coursework in English, mathematics, reading, and science. The results of the survey are used to inform ongoing efforts to develop, refine, and update common academic standards and inform policymakers and educators. The results also guide development of ACT’s curriculum-based assessments to ensure that they meet the needs of college and career readiness.
