ACT and ACT WorkKeys Testing
All students across the state of North Dakota are able to take the ACT at no cost during the spring of their junior year. All juniors at TGU will take the ACT on Tuesday March 21,2017 at the Granville site. If students are not able to test that day the make-up test date is Wednesday April 19, 2017. The ACT test is comprised of 5 sections: English, Math, Reading, Science and Writing. The composite score from this test can be used by students to gain admission into a college, earn scholarships and provides placement into certain college level classes (Math and English). Students who score a 24 or higher on the ACT may also be eligible for the ND Academic and Career and Technical Education Scholarships. If a student does not score a 24, but is eligible based on all other criteria (please click on the link above) he/she is encouraged to take the ACT WorkKeys. The WorkKeys has three sections: Applied Math, Reading, and Locating Information. This test is used to measure workplace skills and provides eligibility for the ND scholarships if a five is earned in each section. Students are offered this test their senior year at no cost. If a student wishes to retest (which can be done in any of the three sections) the student would pay $8 to retest the tests necessary.
