• Practice ACT & PreACT

    The purpose of a PreACT or Practice ACT is for students to:

    • experience what taking the ACT is like, including the format, timing, and test environment students will encounter on the official exam
    • practice using test-taking strategies that help students most accurately show what they know and are able to do
    • understand test taking procedures, ranging from learning the test format and how to pace themselves, to ensuring they know logistics like what to bring and not bring on test day
    • learn what areas on the ACT they are on track to do well in, and which areas they may need to focus on between now and when they take the official exam

    Parkway's ACT Day will be Tuesday, April 9, 2024.

    Practice ACT - Grade 9 - Freshmen will take a modified ACT with questions focusing specifically on grade-level appropriate content. Registration is not needed for this test. The assessment will be significantly shorter than an official ACT. Students will then participate in a classroom activity following testing. Students will be testing in a room with their Academic Lab.  The specific room assignment/location (which will not necessarily be their Ac Lab room) is linked below.  All students will report to their testing rooms at 7:35 am.  Be sure to bring a pencil, calculator and fully-charged Chromebook. You will enter your answers into an online form which will give you immediate results/feedback.  After the exam, you will have a classroom activity which will conclude by 11:35 am and students will be dismissed for the day.  Bus transportation will be provided at 11:35 am, if needed. Please reach out to Mrs. Prange if you have any questions.  

    PreACT - Grade 10 - The PreACT is a practice test designed to expose sophomores to the structure, pace, and content of the ACT test. The PreACT provides a predicted ACT score and offers insight into a student’s academic and career-planning needs.  Registration is not needed for this test. Students will be testing in a room with their Academic Lab.  The specific room assignment/location (which will not necessarily be their Ac Lab room) is linked below.  All students will report to their testing rooms at 7:35 am and will need to bring a pencil and calculator. Testing will conclude by 11:35 am and students will be dismissed for the day.  Bus transportation will be provided at 11:35 am, if needed. Please reach out to Mrs. Prange if you have any questions.
