Opportunity for 11th graders to take the optional ACT Writing+ test


ACT logo This week the Colorado Department of Education announced procedures on how grade 11 students may take the ACT+ Writing test.

In past years, the optional Writing component was not part of the Colorado ACT test required of all 11th graders. This year, the state of Colorado is offering the opportunity for high school juniors who wish to take the ACT+ Writing to do so on Saturday, April 9, 2016 at an identified national testing site. Students will take the full battery of the ACT on the same day.

Grade 11 students must request a voucher between February 1-5; the voucher will pay the cost of taking the ACT+ Writing.  Each high school will be communicating with Grade 11 students on its procedures.    Grade 11 students will receive their voucher February 19.  Each student will need to register in advance to take the ACT +Writing through the ACT webpage The deadline for the national April 9th test date is March 4, 2016Students are encouraged to register as soon as possible as ACT National Testing Centers place a cap on the number of students who can test on any given test day.   

Grade 11 students who do not wish to take the ACT+ Writing or are not able to test on April 9,  will take the required Colorado ACT on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at their home schools.  Students who take the ACT+writing on April 9, 2016 with a voucher will NOT take the Colorado ACT on April 19 at their home high school. 

If a Grade 11 student has already registered to take the April 9 National ACT, the cost will not be reimbursed by the state of Colorado and the student is required to take the Colorado ACT on April 19 at their home high school. 

The changes were made due to new legislation passed last spring.

There are three national testing sites in the Cherry Creek School District at Cherry Creek, Eaglecrest and Overland high schools. See the list below for locations of other Colorado testing sites.
