No; we are happy to switch families to the location of their choice. If you see another location on the list that works better for you, please let your LSC know as they reach out in November and December so we can reassign your testing location early. Space is limited at each location, so please reach out with requests as soon as possible.
Time spent traveling to/from testing, test preparation, as well as actual time spent testing can count towards your attendance logs that week.
These tests do not have an effect on grades or transcript, but scores are used as an indicator for future placement and advisement. The scores generated can also assist you in determining readiness for future college courses. Scores become part of the student’s academic record.
Yes, during the two week testing period, only one week’s worth of assignments will be due to accommodate the testing schedule.
Yes, we strongly recommend that students bring snacks/water to testing. For students taking the ACT and ACT Aspire, we recommend sending students with a full lunch since the exam sessions extend into the afternoon. Students taking ACT and ACT Aspire will have a designated lunch time during the test but will not be permitted to leave the testing facility during that time.
Testing hours will vary depending on the exam being administered and on the student taking the exam. The times below will be the norm at most of our testing locations.
