- Accommodations for ACT WorkKeys are determined by the IEP Team or 504 Committee.
- More information will be released at a later date about the State Assessment.
- The pre-test sessions of the ACT with Writing must be completed on a SEPARATE day PRIOR to the administration of the test. Although the pre test session may be administered at any time on a day prior to the test administration, timed testing for the ACT with Writing must begin no later than 9 a.m. This is true for both paper and online testing .
- In 2017-2018, a district may choose one of two options for the initial test date for ACT with Writing paper testing. Please note that districts that choose Option 1 of March 20 as the initial test date must select only one paper make-up date- April 3 or May 8-from the two options. Districts that choose Option 2 of April 3 for the initial test date must select May 8 for their paper make-up test date. Schools will be allowed to administer both paper and online formats. With this alternative, schools may choose to administer online tests for all students who missed the paper test, eliminating the need for ordering and administering paper make-up tests.
- ACT must approve all accommodations on the ACT with Writing. Documentation must be submitted directly to ACT.
- A window is allowed for the ACT with Writing Online Testing. Since a different form of the test is given each day, schools may choose to test on more than one date during the online window. A student must complete the test in one day. Schoolsmay choose online testing to administer make-up tests for students who were originally scheduled for paper tests.
