ACT TESTING

Students in grades 10, 11, and 12 are provided several opportunities to demonstrate college and career readiness as they prepare to exit high school.

The PreACT
Administered to all 10th grade students in North Carolina, the PreACT provides early practice for the ACT. Since the PreACT is so closely aligned to the ACT, students receive scores that predict future performance on the ACT.

The ACT
North Carolina administers the ACT to all 11th graders during the March statewide administration. Students and schools receive results on the 4 subtests that make up the Composite Score (English, Math, Reading, and Science) and the Writing subtest.

The ACT WorkKeys
North Carolina administers the ACT WorkKeys assessment to all CTE concentrators who complete a four-course CTE sequence prior to graduation. The ACT WorkKeys assessment is widely recognized as an industry credential.

 

CREDIT BY DEMONSTRATED MASTERY (CDM)

The State Board of Education defines “mastery” as a student’s command of course material at a level that demonstrates a deep understanding of the content standards and the ability to apply his or her knowledge of the material.

“Credit by demonstrated mastery” is the process by which school districts shall, based upon a body-of-evidence, award a student credit in a particular course without requiring the student to complete classroom instruction for a certain amount of seat time.
