Dear Academic Approach Families & Colleagues:

We’re spending this week offering updates on ACT & SAT, some of which are relevant to our Class of 2021 and some to the Classes of 2022 and beyond.

On August 26, 2020 in a Facebook Live session with Grown & Flown, ACT’s CEO Janet Godwin explained the following regarding its goal of administering at-home, online testing.

When will ACT provide at-home, online testing? ACT…

  • plans to provide at-home, online testing in December. There are pilots taking place now. Last weekend they kicked off an initial pilot to test the technology for 50 students (whose scores will not be college reportable) and are planning additional beta tests in October and December.
  • tabled the work on online testing at test sites until at least 2021, given the demand for “basic” testing this fall. We’ll continue to share information as we acquire it.

We’ll keep you updated about the development of an at-home, online testing solution.

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