Answers to Questions during the session from Meredith Townley - trainer for ACT
A few people asked about getting copies of the Abbreviated Test Booklet. The booklets are online:http://www.act.org/standard/instruct/index.html

Question: How do ACT tests relate to WorkKeys?Answer: The simplest answer is that because the two were designed to measure different things for different purposes, there isn’t a direct correlation. However, by comparing student performance on the two assessments, we have found that the concordance between the ACT College Readiness Benchmarks and WorkKeys Level 5 show that levels of readiness in reading and math are comparable. This research brief will show more specifics: http://www.act.org/research/policymakers/pdf/ReadinessBrief.pdf
Question: What is the recommended sequence of courses?Answer: We have identified the college preparatory course sequences that contributed most to college readiness: English 9–12; Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and one (or more) upper-level mathematics course; and Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. Taking a foreign language enhances the benefits of the English sequence, and the upper-level mathematics and science courses have cross-disciplinary benefits.
