  1. My 12th grader will be taking the ACT again in October to see if she can score higher in math (she is taking her 4th math at CC this year through dual enrollment & was proficient in math on Accuplacer, but she is bothered that she scored 4 points less than she wanted). She did really well with the English & essay portion last April. Should I have her take the essay again or skip it? She is applying, in December, to the dental hygiene program at our local CC. So, she won't necessarily need the essay portion scores. She has taken Eng 111 and Eng 112 to satisfy the prerequisites for dental program. Also, when the time comes to send ACT scores, are you able to choose the best scores out of the two times she took the test..? Hope this makes sense. This is my first of three kids, so I am still learning the ins and outs of college & testing. Thanks in advance!
  2. From SFGate https://www.sfgate.com/business/article/For-sale-survey-data-on-millions-of-high-school-13117729.php “In May, the Department of Education issued “significant guidance” that recommended that public schools make clearer to students and their parents that surveys with the SAT and the ACT, a separate college admissions exam, are optional. The notice emphasized that pretest surveys could provide opportunities for families to learn about college choices. But it also reminded schools that parents had the right to inspect all surveys in advance. Parents also have the right to opt their children out of any school-required surveys that touch on sensitive topics like religion, family income or politics. The new federal guidance could give school districts and state education agencies “leverage to push the College Board and the ACT to either eliminate the voluntary survey when it’s being given in a school,” said Amelia Vance, director of education privacy at the Future of Privacy Forum, an industry-funded think tank, “or take out any questions that would be considered sensitive in a particular state.” ... More than 3 million students who graduated in 2018 took surveys with the ACT, the SAT or the PSAT, which is a college scholarship test given to high school juniors. The College Board charges educational institutions 43 cents per student name. Starting in September, the ACT will charge 45 cents per name. As marketing materials on the ACT site put it: Purchasing the names of “racial and ethnic minorities is a great way to increase diversity at your campus.” Other survey services, however, sell students’ personal information far beyond colleges. Scholarships.com, for instance, asks students for their name, birth date, race, religion, home address and citizenship status and whether they have “impairments” like HIV, depression or a “relative w/Alzheimer’s.” Scholarships.com also has a subsidiary, American Student Marketing, that describes itself as the “exclusive broker” of the student data collected by Scholarships.com, offering it to marketers of student loans, credit cards and smartphones. ... Paul Weeks, ACT’s senior vice president for client relations, said his organization allowed only colleges, universities and scholarship organizations to use its database, which includes details like students’ family income, religious affiliation and test score range. ACT also prohibits clients from sharing students’ data with third parties, he said. ... But the College Board allows universities to share students’ data with certain educational partners, said Zach Goldberg, a spokesman for the College Board. And one of those universities disclosed students’ survey data to the for-profit National Leadership Academies.”
  3. From EdWeek http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/high_school_and_beyond/2018/08/students_with_disabilities_sue_act_over_release_of_personal_information.html ”A group of college-bound students with special needs and their parents filed suit Monday against ACT Inc., claiming the the testmaker illegally disclosed to colleges that they have disabilities. The class action suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, challenges the way the Iowa-based company uses information about students with disabilities ... ACT and the College Board, which makes the SAT, agreed years ago to stop flagging the test scores of students who take the exam with accommodations, after that practice drew widespread criticism. But the new lawsuit says that the version of the score report that ACT sends to colleges shows information about disabilities, while the version that goes to students and their high schools does not. ... The students—from families in California, Colorado and Nevada—claim that their work prospects could be affected, also, because the data report created by ACT's WorkKeys assessment—a popular career-readiness test—suggests that they took that exam with accommodations. "Tens of thousands of employers may have access to this data at any given time," the lawsuit says. The lawsuit describes how ACT's information-sharing practices played out for the students. Halie Bloom, who lives in Newport Beach, Calif., graduated from high school this past spring. Because of attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder and a reading disability, she's had an individualized education plan, or IEP, since middle school. Bloom took the ACT several times with approved accommodations. ACT acquired the information about her disability from her test-registration process. The score reports it sent to the colleges she requested included a notation that she had a "learning or cognitive disability." Bloom will attend the University of Arizona in the fall. But she believes that colleges and scholarship organizations may have declined to consider her after ACT shared her disability status with them.”

  6. ACT scores are affected as well and California State University system is aware of the glitch. From KTVU http://www.ktvu.com/news/computer-glitch-at-csu-fails-to-upload-sat-scores-making-applications-incomplete “A computer coding issue is worrying prospective California State University students after their SAT and ACT scores failed to upload and attach to their applications. 2 Investigates was contacted on Thursday by a college advisor claiming students were running the risk of having their applications canceled. A spokesperson for the 23-campus university system admitted to KTVU on Friday there is indeed a problem because of a coding issue, but no applications will be denied or canceled as administrators are furiously working to correct the glitch. “We’re working through that now and we should have it rectified soon,†Director of Public Affairs Toni Molle said. “Their applications will not be canceled. If there’s any scores that are missing, they will receive an email from us.†... The university system and The College Board are scheduled to have another conference call later on Friday to make sure the sorting of codes and matching is fixed. Any students affected by the mismatch should have received an email. “Students should not worry,†Molle said. “No applications will be canceled without further follow-up.†California State University does not expect any delays and said it is on track to send out acceptance letters as it usually does.â€
  7. Does anyone have any good ideas on some really good science curriculum or living books or even, heaven forbid, a boring text book with which my 17 can peruse in order to prepare for the ACT? We have already done all of the Master Books and we have apologia books as well. Still, the practice ACT tests are throwing her off. We would really appreciate any and all suggestions as she is getting frustrated in the area of science. Thanks, momto12
  8. “As we shared with our member leaders this fall, the College Board will provide unlimited SAT score reports for low-income students starting spring 2018. In addition, CSS Profile will become completely free for low-income students. We will also continue our longstanding partnership with higher education to provide college application fee waivers so that the entire application process will be free for low-income students. - Statement from David Coleman, President and CEO of the College Board, Dec. 13, 2017 ... This applies to all income-eligible students who take the SAT, whether they take it during a weekend national administration or through a School Day administration. ...

The free score reports—up to 20 for each test students take with a fee waiver—will never expire, so students may use them whenever they wish.†http://leadershipblog.act.org/2017/12/act-will-offer-free-score-reports-to.html?m=1
  9. Hi all, My daughter, 11th grade, was diagnosed with Lyme a couple of months ago. As is typical, she is feeling worse while being treated. Her main issue is severe fatigue. She is normally a diligent student who is self motivated, but for the past few weeks she hasn't been able to get out of bed before 11:00 a.m. I wake her to give her some meds but she flops back down and goes right back to sleep. Right now she sleeps twelve or more hours per day and also naps. She has hardly been able to do any school work for two full weeks. She is registered to take the ACT on Saturday. She already took it in February (didn't get a great score, but her health was already suffering at that point). I'm wondering whether to even have her take it this Saturday. Her score won't be good, but she would get more experience with the test. At the same time, it will completely wipe her out and it may take several days for her to recover. I do have her registered for the ACT in June, and she could probably take it in the Fall of her senior year. I don't know why it's so hard for me to make this decision. Getting more practice on the ACT seems like it would be beneficial. It scares me to think about how there are only a limited number of times available to take it. And yet the reality is, she is dealing with a difficult illness, and maybe it's okay to accept that and let her sleep in on Saturday. Any thoughts or perspectives to help me process this decision? Will it all be okay if she doesn't take the ACT this Saturday? (Sometimes I just need to know that it will all be okay.) Thanks in advance.
  10. This is kind of a misleading question, as I am definitely retaking it (I've only taken it once). My question is, to what extent will retaking it help? I got a 31 but I hadn't studied many topics. I mostly reviewed timing strategies and took one practice test. This score is good enough to get into the colleges I like, but they are close to the average freshman score. I do know that I can do better if I study the trickier topics, but I've got a lot to do and I don't know how much time I can spend studying for the test. It would be worth it though, if I could get merit aid because of a higher score. My target score for the retake is 33. Could an additional 2 points in an ACT score give me a greater advantage in obtaining scholarships and merit aid? Thank you, and I'm sorry if this post was jumbled.
  11. From my Facebook feed from Duke TIP It is only two pages :) http://www.act.org/content/dam/act/unsecured/documents/How-Do-7th-Graders-Who-Take-the-ACT-Score-as-11th-Graders.pdf
  12. DD took the ACT this morning at the local high school. She and her friend had a hard time concentrating due to the fact that other test takers began talking partially through each section and particularly during the Science section. In addition, DD was surprised when they were given the written section. She put her top choice down to have scores sent to because this school Super Scores and she had done well enough on her practice exam that she felt confident that she would increase her scores. Now, she is not so sure. Is it possible to log into her account and not have the scores from this exam sent to any colleges? Sarah
  13. Hello, Can anyone give me a recommendation for the best calculator for the AP Chemistry exam? It would be a bonus if it is also good for the SAT/ACT and other APs like AP Calculus. But, if I need to buy more than one, I will. The TI-84 plus series was recommended, but there seem to be several versions of it. I know that a simpler, cheaper calculator is also okay. We have the TI-30X IIS, and can use that one. I just thought it might be good to go ahead and start using one of the graphing calculators since those will be needed for other exams, like AP Calculus, and start getting familiar with it. I also read that a familiar calculator is better than the "perfect" calculator, which I thought was good advice, and which is why I want to get one now that could be used for multiple exams. For SATs, the TI-89 calculator was recommended as being a good one on a blog I just read. I don't know if that one is approved for the AP Chem exam also though. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
  14. I came across this site today - http://www.prepfactory.com/ It looks nice but obviously I haven't used it long enough to really know. It does let you make a teacher account and then add students so you can monitor their progress. I emailed and asked about which SAT they are prepping for and they said it is still the old one so just bear that in mind. Currently they have a fun vocabulary challenge where students can go head to head against a random student. That I did try and it was FUN.
  15. Hi~ My daughter just received results of her first ACT test, which we viewed as a trial run of sorts. However, she was disappointed to see that not all of the points in a couple of sections -- math and reading -- were included in her composite score. We thought that, like her sample tests scores, the composite would be just a simple average of the four subscores. This didn't happen to her cousin or her brother, when their tests were scored. Can anyone explain this? Thank you, Desiree
