THE ACT® AND ACT WORKKEYS® RESULTS
The ACT College Admissions Assessment is given to all students in the 11th grade and the ACT WorkKeys assessment is administered to seniors who are Career and Technical Education (CTE) concentrators. Beginning in 2012-13, The ACT and the ACT WorkKeys became part of North Carolina’s school accountability program.
In order to support student success on The ACT, North Carolina administers the ACT Explore assessment at 8th grade and the ACT Plan assessment at 10th grade. ACT Explore and ACT Plan are diagnostic assessments that are predictors to future performance on The ACT. They also provide information to help parents, teachers, and students determine future goals.

Results of Graduates on The ACT
ACT provides results from The ACT administrations for graduates each year. This data includes results of students who indicated they would graduate in the reporting year on their The ACT answer sheets. This report includes benchmark results for the State, the 115 Public School Systems, and Charter Schools. It contains results on the 4 subtests that comprise the Composite Score (English, Math, Reading, and Science). It does not contain the Writing subtest because it is not a required component for administrations outside of the North Carolina statewide administration.
