ACT has announced that it is creating a free online programme to help students prepare for the standardised test. The programme, ACT Academy, is set to launch some time in March, but students can begin signing up to receive notifications before the start date.
Developed by ACT, Khan Academy, NASA and others, ACT Academy will feature educational games, personalised resources and official practice tests to help students struggling in certain subjects. Students will have access to personalised study plans based on their ACT or Practice ACT scores. It is designed to be able to hone in on potentially missed key building blocks so that students can learn and progress in more advanced topics. There will also be video lessons and interactive practice questions along with tips and strategies.
ACT Academy will be accessible anywhere, anytime on internet-ready devices. The programme will be free as the goal is to offer a money-saving alternative to other monetised ACT prep sites and courses, such as Kaplan’s test-preparation programme and the Princeton Review’s online course.
