In 2018, the Edmentum Research and Design team completed a study that was set in an Oklahoma school district. This district used Test Packs to structure instruction and prepare high school juniors for the ACT test, which is a portion of the state’s accountability system for high school graduation. The district requested support from the Edmentum Research team to examine the relationship between usage of Test Packs and student performance on the ACT test.
Today, the ACT® exam is one of the nation’s leading college entry exams. Built to determine students’ academic readiness for the next step in their academic careers, it’s often taken by high school juniors and seniors. In recent years, however, the ACT exam has also taken a more prominent role in high school accountability plans in a handful of states (and the list is growing). And, while it’s no secret there are a lot of options when it comes to preparing for this nationally recognized exam, navigating the appropriate plan for preparation can be challenging.
Whether students are at the turning point of a grade-level promotion, require additional tutoring are in need of summer support, or are making the big move to high school, transitions are inevitable. Edmentum Assessments can help build students’ confidence as they prepare for each new venture by providing individualized, data-driven instruction.
