The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is entering into a partnership with ACT®, Inc. to comprehensively assess Wisconsin high school students. Prepare for the assessments with professional instruction specializing in grammar usage review, time maximization on reading comprehension passages, math, science, and test taking strategies. In session one, students will focus on English usage and mechanics including punctuation, grammar, word usage, and sentence structure; plus rhetorical skills including style, strategy, and organization. In session two, they will review four types of reading passages including Literary, Humanities, Natural Science, and Social Studies. Assessed skills will include recognizing cause/effect, main ideas and details, sequence, compare/contrast, interpreting words and phrases in context, making generalizations and inferences, and drawing conclusions. In session three, students will practice algebra, functions, geometry, statistics and probability, integrating essential skills, numbers/quantity, modeling, and trigonometry. Session four will prepare students for the recall of scientific content including interpretation of data, scientific investigation; plus evaluation of models, inferences, and experimental results.
Take one or all four sessions and get ready to rock the ACT!
