    resultsStudents who took the Pre-ACT will receive paper score reports along with an information booklet to help guide using the results.  The Pre-ACT will help students understand their strengths and weaknesses in the 4 areas of Math, Science, English and Reading.  Scores for each area will range from 1 to 35.  The composite score is the average score of the 4 subject areas.  Students will also notice a STEM score which is an average of the Science and Math results.

    The predicted ACT score is an estimate.  If students take on more challenging academic classes or improve their study habits it may help to improve the predicted score.

    The detailed results will help guide students to identify personal strengths and areas of weakness.  Of importance is recognition that the areas which are weaker are the greatest opportunities for growth.

    There is a section on student score reports which talks about achieving core - all WKHS students will achieve core before graduating because those standards align with graduation requirements.

    The college readiness benchmarks help show an indication of how likely students will be to be ready for college level work by the time they finish high school if their academics continue at the current pace.

    One of the most unique aspects of the Pre-ACT is the "Your Education and Career Journey" section.  In this section students and parents can look at the interests on the career map.  Shaded areas show student's indicated preferred work tasks.  This section also contains an area about interest and career fit which looks at the level of agreement between student reported interests and selected career area.  The profile of success component compares student Pre-ACT scores with those of students who are successful in college with that same major.  

    Some students may see "Region 99" as their interest inventory results.  This means that the student did not procide enough answers on the interest inventory of what was liked/ disliked in various tasks.

    The ACT program has a website of information where students and parents can search for additional information about career areas and specific occupation information.  Examples of information that can be found include work tasks, salary, expected growth, and entry level requirements.  This website is www.actprofile.org.
