• In North Carolina, all tenth-graders take the PreACT. This assessment measures what students have learned in their courses and helps educators identify the information that students still need to learn to succeed in college or a career. All Jordan sophomores will take the PreACT via paper-and-pencil format on October 25, 2022 at Jordan High School.

    The PreACT simulates the ACT testing experience by providing students early exposure to ACT test-quality questions. The PreACT is reported on the same 1–36 score scale as the ACT, but PreACT has a maximum score of 35. The PreACT also provides a predicted ACT composite score range. 

    The PreACT assessment includes four multiple-choice tests: English, math, reading, and science. The PreACT is designed to help parents and educators identify areas where students may need additional academic support or remediation. The PreACT can also help to initiate strategic conversations between parents and schools regarding dual enrollment decisions, identifying curriculum gaps, implementing interventions on behalf of students, and choosing Advanced Placement classes.

    Students may bring an ACT permitted calculator.  Check www.act.org/calculator-policy.html or call 800.498.6481 for a recorded message about the current ACT calculator policy.  We will provide calculators for students if they do not bring their own.
