ACT/PSAE testing to be held April 23-24

     The ACT & PSAE will be administered on Wednesday, April 23 and Thursday, April 24, 2014.  The testing is mandated by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and is a requirement to obtain a diploma in Illinois. The tests take two days.  The first day (approximately 4 1/2 hours) is a standard ACT test.  The second day (approximately 3 ½ hours) is part ACT Work Keys Assessment and part ISBE tests.  In addition to an ACT score each student will receive a PSAE score in reading, math, and science.  These PSAE scores are composites of either the ACT & Work Keys tests or ACT and ISBE tests.  The scores become a part of the student’s permanent record.
