Free ACT retake day announced for Kentucky public school students
According to national data, students are more likely to increase their ACT score by retaking the test a second time. “This is an education-first administration, and our goal is to provide opportunities for Kentucky’s kids to succeed in their goals of a post-secondary education,” said Gov. The ACT is an admissions exam used by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to measure a student’s level of readiness for college. The current price for the ACT in Kentucky is $37 for online testing and $38 for paper-based testing.
“The cost of taking the ACT can be a barrier for many of our students, especially if they want to take it a second time to improve their scores,” said Kentucky Department of Education Commissioner Jason E. One Kentucky student said, from her experience, taking the test multiple times made her a more confident test taker. “As a student, I know that I was a lot more comfortable when I took the ACT for the second time. The date of the free retake day will be designated by the KDE in the Fall of 2022.
More information on the date and locations will be provided to local school districts. Students, families and educators can get more information on the ACT by visiting the Kentucky ACT website.
