*****IMPORTANT*******

This year Bingham High School students will be taking the ACT online. It is the same test given to all other juniors across the nation. The only difference between the online ACT test and paper ACT is how they are administered; both exams have the same content, timing, question types, structure, and scoring. Juniors can practice using the TestNav app which runs the ACT exam. Here is a link to the website: https://home.testnav.com/

Students were giving instructions in their US History class to complete the ACT pre-fill at home. If students have not completed the pre-fill, please go here to create an ACT account. Part of the pre-fill is having students select four free colleges/universities where they want their ACT scores sent. These will NOT be sent if the pre-fill has not bell completed. If a student doesn’t have a history class, did not receive the instructions, or was not able to understand the instructions at the link above, please email the testing coordinator karen.cox@jordandistrict.org.
