Types of Tests and a Description

College Entrance Tests (ACT/SAT)
College entrance tests are given several times a year according to dates and test centers established by the testing company.   Students can pick up ACT/SAT testing information in the main office.   

The EXPLORE program is designed to help 8th graders explore a broad range of  options for their future. The EXPLORE prepares students not only for their high  school coursework, but for their post–high school choices as well. The EXPLORE  is administered to all students in the fall of the 8th grade year.

The PLAN program helps 9th graders build a solid foundation for future academic and career success and provides information needed to address school  districts' high-priority issues. It is a comprehensive guidance resource that helps students measure their current academic development, explore  career/training options, and make plans for the remaining years of high school  and post-graduation years. The PLAN can help all students—those who are college-bound as well as those  who are likely to enter the workforce directly after high school. As a "pre-ACT" test, The PLAN is a powerful predictor of success on the ACT. At the same time,  many schools recognize the importance of PLAN testing for all students, as it  focuses attention on both career preparation and improving academic achievement. The  PLAN will be administered to all students in the freshman year.

The PSAT/NMSQT is a comprehensive, standardized assessment administered  at schools each October. The test provides an opportunity for you to begin addressing areas where they may need extra attention as you 
prepare for life beyond high school. The PSAT can be taken as early as 7th grade and only though 11th grade. The 11th grade score is the only score that can qualify the student to compete for the National Merit Scholarship.

ACT—What is the ACT?
The American CollegeTest is a national college admissions examination that consists of subject area tests in English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. Student should take the ACT following the completion of Algebra II, or spring of the sophomore year and not later than the spring of the junior year. Students should strive for a 25 or higher. A score of 27 and higher  usually puts the students in scholarship range.
SCORING - Your Composite score and each test score (English, Mathematics, Reading, Science) range from 1 (low) to 36 (high). The Composite Score is the average of your four test scores, rounded to the nearest whole number. Fractions 
less than one-half are rounded down; fractions one-half or more are rounded up.
