• What is a good test score?

    It depends! What are your goals? Testing is just one component of the overall picture that colleges and employers are considering. Visit the specific programs that you are interested and find out their requirements for testing. 


    Keep practicing. There are many test preparation websites and courses that you can take to be better prepared for formal assessments.

    Dear Parent/Guardian:

    The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction will soon be administering the PreACT assessment to all eligible tenth grade students. The PreACT assessment includes a pretest portion that will not be available to students through the state test administration. Parents and students can, however, voluntarily access and complete the information that is included in this pretest portion and create an ACT profile at the following website:
