ACT Work-Keys!


Josh Rodriquez, Features Editor

On Monday November 1st All Students who did not make a 970 on their SAT were required to take the ACT Work-Key. In September 2015 the board of education made it a requirement to take and pass the ACT work-keys if a student had failed to pass their SAT with a score of 970. This new benchmark to graduate was to “make sure” that students were at the “acceptable level” of education to make it in working life. The actual test itself consisted of three parts that were relatively easy to work through and it took around 3 hours to complete the ACT work-keys. Personally, I expected the test to be more difficult than it turned out to be so I was not as upset as I was when we only learned about the requirement to take the test only a week before we actually had to take the test.
