North Carolina Department of Public Instruction partners with the ACT to provide students with a transitional assessment program throughout high school. Students take the ACT in their 11th grade year.
Students with Disabilities
Accommodations provided for ACT testing are NOT automatically provided for students with IEPs or 504 plans at the school level. The accommodations they are concerned with are test-situation accommodations. Students with IEPs should speak with their case manager regarding their accommodations and students with 504s must work with their Counselor or the School Testing Coordinator to submit required paperwork through the ACT TAA System. This begins only when parents submit a completed Release of Student Data Form to Student Services.
For more information regarding accommodations for the ACT please visit their Accommodations Site.
Exemption from State ACT Administration
If a student has taken the ACT (or SAT) already and are happy with the score earned, it is possible that a student could be exempted from the North Carolina Grade 11 administration of the ACT (provided that the state benchmark score has been met). Please review the letter and form linked below and submit the form as well as score reports to Student Services.
