Alabama students to receive free ACT testing

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

Eleventh graders in Alabama's public schools will be the first class to take advantage of a free ACT exam.

It's part of the state's new testing initiative, offering ACT generated exams starting in third grade to better track a student's learning trajectory.

These tests will replace the Alabama reading and math test - and the high school graduation exam. It's all part of the state's push for career and college readiness.

The state's assessment budget will cover the testing costs of $2.7 million.
