From ACT: HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEWS?
To help your students reach their maximum potential for college and career readiness, we are enhancing the ACT® test with options that keep students’ needs in mind.
Beginning with the September 2020 national ACT test date, students will have more options when taking the ACT:
ACT Section Retest—Students who have already completed a full ACT test can choose to retake one or more sections (English, math, reading, science, or writing) without having to retake the entire test.
Superscore reporting—To support the growing trend of students taking the ACT test multiple times, score reports will now include a calculated ACT Superscore, along with an ACT Composite score.
Faster results with online testing—Students will be able to choose to take the ACT online at a test center on national ACT test dates and get their multiple-choice test results as early as two business days after taking the test.

0-Period SAT Test Prep for May and Summer Test Dates
The 0-Period SAT Test Prep is taught by Northview High School teachers at Northview before first period starts. It costs $50 to take the class in order to pay for the workbook. We cannot schedule the first day of class until we have received all funds for the workbooks and ordered the workbooks. Therefore, class usually doesn't start until three or four weeks after the start of the semester but runs until the end of the semester. This course counts as a class, is given a grade, and counts for attendance. The grade will be entered into the students Northview overall GPA but will not be counted as part of a students' HOPE GPA.
There are three steps to register for the class:
