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...
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.
