On November 7, 2013 eighth graders had the opportunity to take an ACT practice test. The purpose of this test was to prepare students for the ACT test during their junior year in high school. This test consisted of the four main subjects of school. English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. Many students did not complete all of the sections, and if they did they guessed on many of the questions. 8th grader, Lauren Lish stated, “ I finished all the sections, but I had to guess on many of the questions.” Lauren wasn’t the only one who didn’t finish all the sections. 8th grader Ashlynn Horrocks said, “ I finished all the sections but  math. I had seven questions left on math.”

This test was a great way for students to see what the real ACT test will look like in the future. Lauren said, “ It was very beneficial because it shows us what we will be doing in high school.” Ashlynn said, “ It was a good time to spend time. It prepares us for the real test!”


Students will receive scores on each of these sections in a few short weeks.
