PreACT provides students with a realistic ACT test experience. Each year nearly 3 million high school juniors and seniors take the ACT to gain insights into their college and career readiness. PreACT, administered in grade 10, gives students practice with the ACT test and empowers them, their parents, and educators with these valuable insights even sooner.
- Early indication of progress and ideas for improvement—PreACT gives students an estimated ACT test score and can be used as an indicator of college and career readiness. Reports include data to help teachers and counselors target interventions, inform classroom instruction, and guide students in course selection.
- Fast, robust reporting—Reports are ready quickly, so teachers and students can get to work turning PreACT insights into action. Reports include information about student interests that counselors can use to advise students in thinking about college majors and careers.
- Easy, flexible, and affordable administration—PreACT encompasses paper-based, multiple-choice tests in English, math, reading, and science. PreACT is a flexible and affordable way to give students low-stakes practice in a high-stakes environment. *Free to all NC public school sophomores.
