The ACT which was scheduled to be given Tuesday in districts nationwide as part of in-school testing has been cancelled by ACT.
According to a statement from ACT emailed to test coordinators late Friday, “The ACT state and district test administration that had been scheduled for Oct. 2, 2018 has been postponed due to a compromise in the testing process.” Furthermore, ACT states, “A compromise in the testing process is an event that could impact the fairness of the exam. ACT has taken this action to ensure fair testing for all students and to protect the integrity of the test scores. The incident is still under investigation, and ACT cannot comment on what specifically occurred at this time.”
ACT is now planning to offer the district / weekday district testing on Tuesday, October 16th. Juniors and seniors who have already paid for the exam will have those funds transferred for the new testing date. Those who have not yet sent the $46.00 fee for the test should do so by the end of this week.
