ACT Test - Feb. 28

ACT

The ACT for All Juniors will take place at Washburn High School on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 8:15 am in the main gym. All 11th graders will take the paper-based with writing exam. This exam is offered to all WHS juniors free of charge. 

The test will take approximately 4-4.5 hours. The test is broken up into 5 sections: English - 45 minutes Math - 60 minutes Reading - 35 minutes Science - 35 minutes Writing - 40 minutes. The test will start promptly at 8:15, so it's imperative that students arrive on time to school on the morning of the exam. Students will test in the main gym. Students with testing accommodations will test in the Media Center. Students are encouraged to bring at least 2 #2 pencils and an ACT-approved calculator to the exam (see ACT.org for a list of calculators not to use). Cell phones, tablets, Apple Watches, and other electronics are not allowed in the testing rooms. The test will conclude at approximately 1:00-1:30pm with bagged lunches being served immediately after the test for those who want a school lunch. Juniors WILL NOT HAVE REGULARLY SCHEDULED CLASSES AFTER THE TEST AND MAY LEAVE AFTER THE TEST. 

Grades 9, 10, and 12 will maintain their regular schedule on February 28.
