What Can I Learn From My Score Report?
Predicted Score Ranges
Reviewing the Score Report
Scores
A prediction of how you will score on the ACT after an additional year of learning.

Your Strengths and Weaknesses in four subject areas important for success in college: English, Math, Reading and Science as of October 2016.

How to strengthen your weaker skills.

What is the PreACT?
Practice test for ACT (College Entrance Exam that ALL Juniors Take in North Carolina)

Completed by ALL Sophomores in North Carolina

Tested in 4 subject areas: English, Math, Reading and Science
This is the front of the score report. We will start here.
Your Composite Score is an average of the Math, Science, Reading and English Sections (add up all sections and divide by 4).
The purple line represents your PreACT score.
The light purple box represents your PreACT Score Range. This is your true educational development.

No one test can evaluate your educational development with absolute precision, so the ranges are a truer representation of your score.
Scores range from 1-35.
The gray line represents ACT's Readiness Benchmark.

Students scoring at or above the Benchmark have about a 75% chance of obtaining a C or higher in first year college courses in the corresponding subject area.

Students scoring below the Benchmark will need to do additional studying/work to achieve a score above the Benchmark.
The STEM Score is an average of your Math and Science scores.
ACT uses your PreACT scores to predict how you will score on the ACT.

You can use these predicted scores to see if you are on track to get the ACT score you need to get into the college of your choice.

**These predictions are
only
an estimate and not a guarantee. You need to continue learning in order to score in your predicted range.**
Detailed PreACT Results
Breakdown of the topics covered in each test.
Number of questions you answered correctly out of the total numbers of questions on that topic.
Percentage of questions you answered correctly in each topic.
A bar graph to help you visualize the areas that are strengths and the areas that are weaknesses.
If the "Proficient" area is highlighted, it means you are understanding the meaning of complex texts at a level that is needed to succeed in college level courses.

If the "Below" area is highlighted, it means you need to improve your reading/comprehension skills in order to be successful in college level courses.
