The official ACT website does offer free sample questions and practice tests to help students prepare.

ACT Prep: free practice tests and links were posted on our school website under ACT.

There are Quizlets and lots of other good and free practice can be found with a quick search. There are also some good resources that you may purchase such as the “red book”, the official ACT prep book.

Also, if you qualify and use a fee waiver to register, then you may qualify for free Test prep through the ACT online Kaplan services as well. This is always subject to change but always be aware of opportunities when signing up as they
are usually posted in your MyACT account or an official ACT email.


ACT has policies designed to enhance test security. These changes will impact all students taking the ACT and all test center staff and involve important ID requirements. You must bring an ACT approved form of identification the day of the exam; examples include a driver's license, official school ID with photo (not
laminated), or current passport. If you do not have a proper ID, you may also get an official ACT ID form from your school counselor or college office’s school official. This form must be filled out properly with a school/notary seal. You must have uploaded a current picture when registering so that it will be on your
admission tickets and the ACT roster. Please note an admission ticket is NOT an ID. When checking in on the morning of your ACT exam, your names on the admission ticket, ID, and official ACT roster must match. Again, you must have proper ID when checking in that morning.


For Late Registration or Standby request, sign up online. For more information on any policy or help, please go to the ACT's official website, read the information in your MyACT account or emails from ACT, go to the
college and career or guidance offices, or call ACT (prepare to be on hold if lines are busy).

Info regarding taking the ACT, buying back the ACT, and more also follows here. When registering for ACT and thereafter, please pay attention to details including your emails from ACT for any changes to your test site
including those COVID-related as that is usually how ACT contacts you. Your MyACT account and admission ticket contain important info too. In the event of extreme inclement weather, you check the school’s social
media pages to see if the ACT has been canceled or your MyACT account or email. Only ACT has the authority to reschedule an ACT. So please read your info when registering and check your emails too! ACT contacts you
and not our school.


Some general information regarding Saturday ACT testing at WCHS:
1. The test will be given in classrooms at WCHS. Please enter the campus from Pioneer Lane (park in
teacher parking lot) and enter the building through the door near the band room entrance.
2. Please arrive before 8:00 a.m. Testing begins at 8 a.m. Arriving by 7:45 allows you to find your test
room, use the restroom, sharpen pencils, etc. Due to state law and most importantly for your safety,
we have to keep all doors locked so please don’t be late or exit at break or you will be locked out.
3. You must have acceptable identification to enter (examples include driver's license or school ID) and
your admission ticket is advised for faster test scores. See the test registration information or ACT's
website for more information. Your admission ticket will tell what to bring and where to park as well.
You can print your admission ticket when you register or even the night before the ACT through your
online MyACT account. The college office can help you too.
4. Bring two number 2 sharpened pencils. Do not bring scratch paper or notes.
5. Calculators are permitted but will NOT be provided for the math portion of the exam. Borrow one if
needed from your math teacher prior to the test if needed.
6. Prohibited calculators include TI-89, TI-92, HP 40G, HP48GII, HP49G, Casio Algebra fx 2.0, Class Pad
300, CFX9970G, pocket organizers, handheld or laptop computers, electronic writing pads, calculators
built into cell phones or other electronic communication devices, calculators with a typewriter keypad
(keys in QWERTY format), and calculators with built-in computer algebra systems. School TI-84’s are
good!
7. No Apple watches, cell phone, or other electronic device use either until you are finished with all your
tests and officially dismissed! Also, watches must be kept on your desk during testing. For more on
what to and not to do so you are not dismissed, please visit here:
https://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/the-act/test-day.html

8. Dress in layers and appropriately. The temperature can vary in rooms and we are not able to adjust the
thermostat unfortunately so be prepared for warm or cold rooms.
9. Although you cannot eat during the exam, bringing a water bottle and/or snack for break is always a
great idea. Also, try to get a good night’s rest prior as well. For more tips, reach out to your teachers
and the college office too!


If you have questions, please use the link above to the official ACT site or see the college
office, your school counselor, or Mr. Brandon Hodges who is in charge of Saturday testing.
There are apps and social media pages as well so you can follow on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. So “like” and “follow” the ACT on social media as well for latest info, test tips, etc.
Requesting a Copy of Your Test Questions and Answers: If you order and pay for a Test
Information Release (TIR) form and test at a national test center on a national test date
that offers this service, you will receive a list of your answers, a copy of the multiple-choice
test questions used to determine your score, the answer key, and scoring instructions. (If
you took the Writing Test, you will also receive a copy of the writing prompt, the scoring
rubric, and the scores assigned to your essay by two readers.) Your copy will arrive via pdf
in your MyACT account a few weeks after the exam. You will usually receive an email as
well when it is ready to download and view. Information about ordering a photocopy of
your answer document (including your essay if you took the Writing Test) for an additional
fee will be included with your materials.
See current test fees: https://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/the-
act/registration/fees.html

TIR Test Dates Availability
April 2023 Saturday and non-Saturday testing
June 2023 Saturday testing only
September 2023 Saturday testing only
April 2024 Saturday and non-Saturday testing
June 2024 Saturday testing only

Which test dates offer this service? If you take the ACT at a national test center on one of
the national test dates listed below, you can order a TIR form when you register or during
the six-month period after your test date usually (if ordered after, there is an additional fee
as noted above). This service is not offered on any other test dates or for any non-national
administrations.

The fastest and best way to receive a TIR is to register online when you register for your ACT exam (best,
cheapest, and fastest way). But again, you can order for a few months after one of the above test dates
through your MyACT account: https://my.act.org/account/signin?location=https://my.act.org
You will then receive your TIR as a pdf file in your MyACT account a few weeks after taking the ACT as they
are no longer printed and mailed. At that point, you can see what you got wrong and what you missed.
This is a great tool to help you work on improving your skills and ACT score. Many WCHS teachers are
ready to help you analyze your results and help you improve! Advisory time would be a great time to work
on improving your ACT score as well. Work hard, believe in yourself, and be prepared! We believe in you!
