To be eligible for graduation, all juniors must now take Nevada’s new college and career readiness assessment, however, the only requirement is participation. For the current school year, the state Board of Education chose the ACT.  A student’s ACT scores will not be used to determine graduation eligibility, but the scores can be submitted with college applications.

What is the ACT?

Nevada juniors will take the ACT Plus Writing, which consists of a 30-minute writing test and 215 multiple-choice questions in four subject areas:  English, mathematics, reading and science.

All Nevada juniors will take the ACT free of charge.  This gives all Nevada students the opportunity to take a nationally recognized college admissions exam.
