New Proposal To Require All WI High School Students To Take ACT

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012 at 4:47 pm

A new law proposed by the state Department of Public Instruction, would make the ACT exam a required test for all Wisconsin High school students.

Coming only a week after ACT results for the state were publicized, State superintendent Tony Evers announced the decision Wednesday in Pewaukee.

The new law would have all Juniors in high school required to take the college entrance exam, which means the Wisconsin Knowledge Concepts Examination would be replaced. 2014 would be the implemented year.

10 other states already require students to take the ACT for state testing requirements.
