Attention Juniors and Sophomores:

It's time to sign up for the Practice ACT Test, a fundraiser for Jaguar DECA.  
 
It will take place on Saturday, November 3rd, at 8:00 a.m. to about noon at Jefferson High School.  
 
This Fall, we are using the same company as last Winter, Breakaway Test Prep. Many of you know Breakaway from the summer ACT course, as well as the practice test from last Winter, so you will again be in good hands. Students will take a full ACT practice test, without the written portion.
 
Students' tests will be scored and distributed on the same day as the practice test. Included in the score distribution is a report that breaks down all correct and incorrect answers, giving students an opportunity to see the questions that they answered incorrectly, as well as their scores by section. This will help students identify what to work on as they ready themselves for the real ACT.
 
Working with Breakaway Test Prep, there is also an opportunity to participate in a comprehensive review session on Sunday, November 4th, from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM at Jefferson High School.
 
Breakaway has found taking a practice test is only half the battle.  To get the most from your effort, you need to understand the mistakes you made, why you made them, and how to avoid them the next time. One day after your practice test, join your fellow classmates in a comprehensive review session to zero in on areas of opportunity. These small group review classes will be led by expert instructors. Not only will the review session cover the important concepts from your practice test, but it will also introduce critical test-taking techniques, time management strategies, and an overall approach to the ACT to help you maximize your score. 
 
Students can sign up for the ACT Practice Test here or on the Career Center website for the direct link until October 25th.  The cost for the ACT Practice Test only is $15.00, and the review session on Sunday is $35, for a total of $50.  Make checks payable to ISD 271 or bring cash.
