Notice: Records requests should be sent to the last school attended.
If you have a high school senior, get ready to sign up for the October 22, 2016 administration of the ACT. The General Assembly, as part of the Tennessee Student Assessment Transparency Act of 2016, voted to allow each student who took a post-secondary readiness assessment - like the ACT - as a junior to be provided the opportunity to retake it as a senior.
National data indicates that retaking the ACT typically leads to composite score improvement of 1-2 points. In Tennessee, our state data indicates that students who retake the ACT typically increase 1-3 points. Based on the typical growth of those in Tennessee who took the ACT a second time, it is anticipated that thousands of students across Tennessee could avoid post-secondary remediation and meet the ACT requirement for the HOPE scholarship by participating in this retake opportunity.
High Schools across the state should receive the information necessary to begin registering students by Monday, August 22, 2016.
