North Carolina Is Another State Giving ACT To 11th grade

November 23rd, 2011

  Over 10 states administer ACT on a statewide basis to provide interstate comparisons and provide student feedback. There are concerns about how ACT aligns with other in- state secondary school assessments.

ACT to Be Given to Test High School Students’ Post-graduation Readiness
Beginning this spring, North Carolina high school students will take national exams to determine how well they are prepared for life after graduation. The education department will spend $5.5 million to offer the ACT to juniors, the run-up test to sophomores and a standardized test for students who have completed a sequence of career and technical education courses.

  1. Glad that their are still programs for the preparation of college students. And hope that it would be effective. But let’s say. they failed the test? What’s the next step for those students? What are the remedies? I just hope students would focus on studying and not waste money. Unlike before education is attainable but now since economy isn’t returning to its previous state, everyone should learn to save money more.
