• The PLAN Test

    The PLAN is a test given to 10th graders to help prepare students for the ACT test.

    PLAN includes four multiple-choice tests: English, Math, Reading, and Science.

    Science                             30                                    25 minutes

    Your skills in these subjects will make a big difference—in school and, eventually, in your career.

    Once you know what each test covers, your PLAN test results can show you where you're strong or weak.

    Doing Your Best:

    • Get plenty of sleep the night before the test.
    •  Follow directions exactly, and don't be afraid to ask questions.
    • Mark your answer folder carefully. Fill in the ovals neatly.
    • Don't spend too much time on any single question. For hard ones, choose the answer you think is best and move on.
    • Just like the ACT, there is no penalty for guessing. Be sure to answer every question.

    The PLAN Student Score Report contains a lot of information about your skills, interests, plans, and goals.

    You can use this information to:

    • Make sure your remaining high school courses are the best ones possible to prepare you for college
    • Help you consider your options for after high school

    Your Future:
    When you took PLAN, you answered questions about your future educational plans.
