2015/2016 Hanceville: ACT Prep at Wallace State Community College

Wallace State streamlines ACT prep courses

HANCEVILLE, Ala. — High school students wanting to brush up on skills in advance of taking the ACT tests can now choose to take either the English and reading portion, the math and science portion or both.

The Wallace State Community College Alumni Association, which presents workshops for students preparing for the ACT, have split the workshops into two different sessions — one for the English and reading portion and one for the math and science sections.  Doing so demands less time of the students for one session. In the past, the workshops have required a four-hour commitment on the part of the student.

“We decided it was best to split the workshops into two components,” said LaDonna Allen, Alumni and Special Projects Coordinator. “One for math and science and a second for English and reading.

“The test-taking skills instruction, which offers wonderful advice on how to break down what the test questions are actually asking, will remain an integral part of each workshop,” Allen added.

The schedule for upcoming workshops is Oct. 6, 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., for English and reading, and Oct. 15, 4:30 to 8 p.m., for math and science reasoning. Other workshops on the schedule include Jan. 28, March 15 and June 16 for English and reading and Feb. 4, March 10 and June 16 for math and science reasoning. For the June dates, the English and reading workshop will be held from noon to 2:30 p.m., and 3 p.m. to 6:30 for math and science reasoning.

The workshops are $35 each or $55 with a workbook. The Princeton Review Cracking the ACT is the workbook for these courses and would only need to be purchased once.

How to prepare for the test, what to expect on test day, practice exercises, test-taking time management and ways to make a “best guess” will be included in the sessions.

The ACT is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students’ academic readiness for college. Colleges and universities use the scores to determine admission, course placement and advising. The scores may also be used scholarship and loan agencies to identify qualified candidates.
