ACT: Single Subject Testing Postponed & Fall Testing Updates

Dear Academic Approach Families & Colleagues:

We’re writing with some ACT updates that will impact summer and fall testing.

ACT is postponing its single subject testing scheduled for the fall in order to increase capacity for students wanting to take the full ACT in the fall. After the challenges experienced by many students with June cancellations and July registration, the capacity needs are greater than ever. The single subject testing option will be released sometime in 2021. Students will only be able to take full-length ACT tests this fall at all test sites.

For students that are registered for the July test, ACT plans to release open/closed status for test sites by “the end of June”; they are seeking to expand test locations (and possibly add additional test dates) for the fall; and they are still planning to provide online testing (with faster score reporting times) at select sites. Superscoring will still be offered on score reports starting in September.

ACT is continuing to pursue a remote proctoring solution “on a limited basis” in late fall/early winter and is working with a “trusted, reliable partner to deliver this capability in safe and secure environments beyond students’ homes.” College Board initially planned to offer this option in the fall but walked back that plan after concerns arising from remote AP testing.

Please let us know if we can help unpack any of these updates and their significance for your planning and programming.

Be well,
Matthew Pietrafetta, Ph.D., Founder & CEO
