Have you or anyone you know taken a mandatory ACT test prep class offered by a high school? Do you know of a school that offers an ACT class as an elective or as an academic credit? If so, how does it work?

I'm not talking about a 3 hour class...I'm talking about an actual class like math, science, english, gym...etc...

 

Thanks!

We have one at Sparta High School, Sparta Mi.  There is a significant positive impact for students who took the ACT class vs those who did not.  So, we like it. A lot.  Right now it's offered as an elective.  

Here is how it works.  Students take a pre-test (actually this is a practice ACT test)... then a list of strengths and weaknesses are created. A period of time is given to work through modules on their weakness. Then they retake a practice ACT test and weaknesses and strengths are identified and modules are assigned.  This cycle happens 4 or 5 times in a semester.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
