ACT Exam: March 8th

All Juniors will be taking the ACT exam on March 8th, 2022. The state required ACT exam provides an excellent opportunity for all Juniors to demonstrate their college and career ready skills, as this exam is reportable to colleges. It is our school goal, that upon graduation, all Franklin High School students are prepared for their post-secondary goals. In addition to daily learning through their classes, students also have access to an online program, Method Test Prep, to help them to prepare for this exam.

Method Test Prep, available through Xello, allows students to engage in subject specific practice. In addition, the program will highlight areas of strength and allow for dedicated practice toward growth areas. The program provides standard specific practice and instructional videos. Method Test Prep also allows each student to engage in two full practice exams. In addition to engaging in ACT preparation through Method Test Prep, all students can engage in full ACT practice exams by simply using their chromebook. By opening the “apps” tab, students can access the TestNav software and will find ACT practice exams available for their use.

Please feel free to reach out with any and all questions. We are available and eager to assist students in their preparation for this measure.
