ACT Tips for Students
ACT Implementation Guide
The ACT senior retake provides all public school seniors an opportunity to retake the exam on a school day at no charge. Last year, 40 percent of participants increased their overall composite score by participating in the retake. Seniors are encouraged, but not required, to participate.
As previously announced, this fall, districts and schools have three options for the ACT senior retake: Oct. 2, Oct. 16, and Oct. 30. In order to maximize student participation and success, the department is offering a few key resources. For high school administrators and staff, the ACT Senior Retake Implementation Guide offers programmatic details, resources for students, and answers to frequently asked questions. For district and school testing coordinators, important deadlines and actions are detailed on the Senior Retake Schedule of Events. Please contact ACT.Questions@tn.gov f
