Oaks Christian College Counseling Office and Compass Education Group have partnered to offer an at-home, computer-proctored ACT practice test at no cost. This test matches the current paper/pencil, linear version of the test. The test results are invaluable in helping Oaks Christian College Counselors and Compass directors craft the ideal testing and tutoring plan for each student.
Keep in mind that this is a practice exam; students should not have access to materials that would assist them during testing. Students should give their best efforts when taking the exam in order to be useful in assessing future standardized testing plans. The testing environment should be in a quiet and calm setting with limited distractions.
DATE & TIME
The ACT practice test is available anytime until March 31st.
The registration deadline each week is Thursday. By Friday, we will send you a detailed confirmation email; the link to take the test will be included; you can take the test anytime during the open testing window.
