Update on standardized testing: In the past few weeks, many states have started re-opening while others are still fighting COVID-19. This can make keeping up with standardized testing difficult for everyone. We are here to help! Read below for a current update on standardized testing.
The ACT has moved its next national test date to June 13. Students will have until May 22 to register for this test date with no late fees. During the week of May 26, the ACT will notify students and announce all test center closures and cancellations for the June 13 test date. However, as the ACT navigates ongoing developments, testing at any test center is subject to change any time between now and June 13. The next national test date will be on July 18, and if students wish, they can move their ACT registration to that date without a change fee.
Don’t forget: The ACT is rolling out some monumental changes come September. Click here to learn more: https://masteryprep.com/three-big-act-changes/
The SAT will no longer hold their national test date on June 6. Instead, if it’s safe from a public health standpoint, beginning in August, they will provide weekend SAT administrations every month through the end of the calendar year. This includes a new administration on September 26 and the previously scheduled tests on August 29, October 3, November 7, and December 5. In the unlikely event that schools do not reopen this fall, the College Board will provide a digital SAT for home use.
Given the nature of COVID-19, you should expect possible changes to your state’s testing situation. The best course of action educators can take is to monitor their state’s updates on standardized testing to stay in the know.
