This professional development will outline essential skills students need to ensure success on the ACT assessment (approved by ISBE May 2024). This will require schools to transition to the ACT suite of assessments. ACT assesses the following: English, Mathematics, Reading, Science and has an essay component. Staff will benefit from a deeper understanding about how the ACT suite of assessments can inform instruction as well as offer data about potential academic pathways for students. Preparation for the ACT should begin at the start of any high school career. Data from the 8th grade Illinois Assessment of Readiness can serve as a springboard to inspire goals and create a high school schedule.  The differences between SAT and ACT will be discussed so educators can ensure maximum student success and school level accountability to learning.  This training will be held on November 7, 2024 from 8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at the ROE #3 Professional Development Center. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. The cost to attend this training is $100/person and a light breakfast will be provided. Each participant will receive 3.0 PD hours.
