Kaplan Comments On The Just-Announced Details To The ACT® Changes Set For 2015

Stocks in this article: GHC

The following statement is from Christine Brown, Executive Director of College Admissions and K12 programs, Kaplan, regarding today’s announcement by the ACT on the addition of new scores and indicators that will, according to the announcement, “describe student performance and predicted readiness levels in categories such as STEM, career readiness, English language arts and text complexity, giving students a greater and more specific understanding of both their preparation for success after high school and how to better meet their goals.”

“Adding dimension to the ACT score adds context without changing content - both of which are great for students. The test isn’t really changing, which is a good thing for students who are looking for a familiar test. By the same token, the new scores will help students better relate their ACT performance to real world potential.”

“A key reason students find the ACT attractive is that it’s always been more aligned to high school curriculum. The SAT is moving in that direction, but for most students, the ACT looks more like what they learn in schools. The new scores give students an added lens on how their performance in Math, Science, Reading and Writing applies more broadly.”

To arrange an interview with a Kaplan ACT and college admissions expert about the upcoming changes to the exam, please contact Russell Schaffer at 212.453.7538 or russell.schaffer@kaplan.com.
