ACT Changes Accommodation - Extended Time

2018-19 Accommodation Change for the ACT Test

ACT is committed to delivering accurate, equitable measures of student achievement. To support this process, they continually review their ACT® test administration policies and procedures. Based on reviews and valuable input, they are making some changes to their national extended time policy that will go into effect in September, 2018.

Students will no longer self-pace through the four multiple-choice sections over the allotted five hours. All students in the accommodation room will begin the same section at the same time and have the same amount of time to complete that section.


World Autism Awareness Day

Those working with students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will recognize the positive impact that structure and organization in daily lives can have on students' sense of security, safety and behavior. Most educators will recognize the value of visual supports for a wide range of students and, when supporting students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, symbols can aid understanding, expression and reduce anxiety.

A new study from Iceland adds to existing evidence that kids are more likely to be diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder if they're among the youngest in their grade at school.  The findings suggest -- but don't prove -- that some children are diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) when they're just less mature than their peers.
