Learning Targets Students will understand the components of the individual Explore- ACT score report. Students will identify the strengths and the areas of growth in English, Reading, Math and Science.

Caution ACT score is one of predictors for student success in college. Colleges also look at other attributes; rigor in your course work (honors & AP classes), GPA, class rank, extra curricular involvements etc. Focus on strengths, then work on the areas that need improvement. If your scores did not meet benchmark, that does NOT mean you cannot go to college.

For subject score (Reading, English, Math, Science), the score range is plus or minus 2. Example: If your score is 15 in English, your score range is 13-17. For the Composite Score, the score range is plus or minus 1. Example: Composite score 15 would mean score range of 14-16. Answer the questions on the worksheet.
