On April 3, 2018, all 11th grade students will take the ACT test, a college entrance exam. The test is part of State testing for accountability purposes. To help students prepare for the test, we have a couple of different resources to share with you.
ACT has provided a number of resources to help prepare to take the ACT test, including the opportunity to take a practice test in an online format. A practice test is also available to examinees taking the ACT test on paper. To access the practice test, go to: http://www.act.org/stateanddistrict/examinees.
In addition, to help students prepare for the test, the Nebraska Department of Education contracted with ACT to provide access to the ACT Online Prep. The ACT Online Prep is the only online program designed exclusively by ACT, featuring real questions from previous tests. Usually students have to pay to access this program but 11th grade students now have free access. In addition to the quality instruction students receive in class, this tool will give students additional opportunities to practice and monitor progress towards ACT benchmarks and College and Career Ready preparedness. To gain access to the system, 11th grade students should use the link and login information below.
