March 18 Practice ACT Test
The practice ACT Test is Saturday, Mar. 18 at 8 a.m. and will take place at Jefferson High School. The practice ACT is a fundraiser for Jaguar DECA. Students can sign up until Friday, Mar. 3.
We are using the same company as in the past, Breakaway Test Prep. Many of you know Breakaway from the summer ACT course, as well as previous practice tests, so you will again be in good hands. Students will take a full ACT practice test, without the written portion.
Students' tests will be scored and distributed via email on the same day as the practice test. Included in the score distribution is a report that breaks down all correct and incorrect answers, giving students an opportunity to see the questions that they answered incorrectly, as well as their scores by section. This will help students identify what to work on as they ready themselves for the real ACT.
Working with Breakaway Test Prep, there is also an opportunity to participate in a comprehensive review session on Sunday, Mar. 19, from 9 - 11:30 a.m. at Jefferson High School.
Breakaway has found taking a practice test is only half the battle. To get the most from your effort, you need to understand the mistakes you made, why you made them, and how to avoid them the next time. One day after your practice test, join your fellow classmates in a comprehensive review session to zero in on areas of opportunity. These small group review classes will be led by expert instructors. Not only will the review session cover the important concepts from your practice test, but it will also introduce critical test-taking techniques, time management strategies, and an overall approach to the ACT to help you maximize your score.
- ACT Practice Test: $15
- ACT Practice Test and Review session: $50
Once registration closes on Mar. 3, we will generate a fee in Infinite Campus and you can pay your registration fee online. If you prefer to pay by cash or check you can bring the check to Eric Roesler's room, B110, which is right next to the JagWear House. Make checks payable to ISD 271 or bring cash.
