Requirements for the 2020-21 administration of statewide assessments remain unchanged under state and federal law. All districts and schools should begin planning for in-person testing now; this includes schools whose current instruction is hybrid, in-person, or 100% virtual. If schools are not open for in-person instruction, they still need to safely provide an in-person, school proctored testing environment if the local health orders allow students and staff to safely be in school buildings.
The ACT® with writing
- The ACT tests include: Reading, Math, English, Science, Writing.
- The ACT with writing helps students understand what they need to learn next so they can build rigorous high school course plans and identify career areas that align with their interests.
- Wisconsin high schools will be certified as ACT® state testing sites. Scores from the administration of the ACT with writing (if taken with ACT Standard Time or ACT-approved accommodations) can be used by students for a variety of purposes including college admission, scholarships, course placement, and NCAA eligibility.
Wisconsin high school students will take the ACT with writing® at grade 11. The ACT is an in-person assessment that districts can administer on paper or online. Accommodations and EL supports are available in both testing formats.
