A Day of Free Testing for Seniors

On Tuesday, October 3rd, the Senior Retake ACT will be administered at Central High School. 11th and 12th graders are required to arrive at school by 7:20 a.m. and will be done by noon.

The test will be taken online, exclusively for Central High students. All students are advised to consider eating breakfast in the morning, which is the key to having energy and staying awake. Students will need to dress comfortably, perhaps dressing in layers, so they’ll be warm.

If you’re unsure where your test center is located, do a practice run to see how to get there and what time you’ll need to leave. You must arrive on time to be admitted to the test. You will NOT be admitted to the test if you are late. Your testing time is located on your admission ticket. Be ready to begin testing after all on-time examinees are checked in. No cell phones or other electronic devices (other than your Chromebook) will be allowed when taking the test.

You will test over five different subjects: Math, English, Science, Reading, and Writing, each one has a time limit on a certain amount of questions. Your scores will be based only on the number of questions that you answer correctly; there is no penalty for guessing. Try to answer every question within the time allowed for each section.

The purpose of this exam is to assess college readiness and predict success for students applying to colleges.  Brielle Farrow, the Assistant Principal and building testing coordinator, is in charge of overseeing the ACT. If a student chooses not to take the test, it will be considered an absence from school and a missed opportunity to take the ACT for free once more. However, you, as the coordinator, will not face any consequences if no one takes the test, as it is offered to benefit seniors.
