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.
Subject Number of Questions Time Allowed
English 30 minutes
Rhetorical Skills 20
Math 40 minutes
Reading 25 20 minutes
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
When you took PLAN, you answered questions about your future educational plans.
