PLAN Results FALL 2014
PLAN Overview -I gave you back your score report, Using Your ACT PLAN Results booklet and your test booklet. The PLAN test is out of 32 and is a practice ACT test. The ACT test is out of 36. You will see a score for the PLAN and an estimated score for the ACT at the very top of your score report. -I encourage you to use this information to improve your score on the actual ACT when you take it during your Junior year. You will improve your score and be more prepared if you use this, however if you take this home and don’t look at it again then nothing will come of it. -Please go over this with your parents, I will be contacting all parents to let them know results went home. I would also encourage you to stop by and talk with me about your results especially if you have more specific questions. *This Power Point will be available on the High School Guidance webpage and Family Connections on Naviance* -Overall this test is very important. The result of your ACT and/or SAT along with your high school grades = getting into the college of your choice and possible scholarship money.
