Junior ACT Information

Attention Junior Parents

Per Ohio state law, the Ohio Department of Education will be paying for one administration of a college readiness examination to all juniors.  Hilliard City Schools has chosen the ACT for our students.  On April 19, 2017, all juniors (according to their grade in Home Access) will be taking the ACT test at their home building.  This date was pre-assigned by the state and ACT.  Students will report to school as normal, and the district will mimic the administration procedures typically enforced at a National, Saturday administration of the ACT.  Below is additional information that will be helpful on both test day and leading up to test day.  Please contact your building counselor’s office for additional questions or clarification.

  • Students will NOT need to register individually; we will register students at the district level directly with ACT.
  • All ACT test security measures will be in place for this state assessment.  Students should be prepared NOT to bring their cell phones into the testing location, and should have proper identification with them. (Current school ID, driver’s license, state ID, etc.)
  • Students who are found to be in violation of the “No Cell Phone” rule may have their phone confiscated, and face additional discipline consequences, including possible suspension.
  • Students will do the pre-administration portion of the test PRIOR to test day.  A portion of the pre-administration will allow students to choose up to four colleges they would like their scores to be sent.
  • Students should plan to bring an ACT approved calculator to the test administration.  (Please see the ACT website, linked below, for the full list of approved calculators.)
  • Score reports will be sent directly to students’ homes from ACT no later than 8 weeks from the testing date.
  • Students can, but are not required to, sign up for an ACT web-account prior to testing.  Students should be able to see scores in the account no later than 8 weeks after testing.
  • Students, who already have an ACT web-account, should be able to see their scores from the state administration in their account no later than 8 weeks from the test date.
