All 11th grade students who completed the ACT Practice Test October 16 had the opportunity to pick up their score report and test booklet from their homeroom teacher Thursday, Nov. 29, just prior to afternoon dismissal. Any Junior who did not pick up their results at that time will receive them in their 1st period class Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Students can use these results to target specific areas for improvement. The QR codes on the back of the printed student reports provide video clips that point out the most commonly missed problems and some tips/strategies that will help in the future. If you prefer to use a direct link rather than the QR code, here are the links:
Juniors who did not complete the practice test October 16 are encouraged to go by the Guidance Office sometime today or tomorrow to get a test booklet and answers to take the test for practice.
All Juniors will take a free real ACT at Houston High School April 2nd!
HHS also provides the following opportunities to prepare for the ACT:
Thank you and Go Mustangs!
