ATTENTION CHANGES IN ACT SECURITY AND IDENTIFICATION
ACT, Inc.—a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping people achieve education and workplace success—is implementing additional safeguards to further ensure ACT score integrity and meet students in the advanced technological world in which they live today.
ACT is committed to providing students a fair and equal opportunity to demonstrate their independent academic achievement, and we review preventive measures on an ongoing basis to ensure every reasonable effort is made to deter and detect potential compromises to test security while still enabling the greatest possible access for students. The new procedures are a part of this ongoing effort.
The following enhancements will safeguard a level playing field for all test takers and help ensure the continued integrity of ACT score results:
ACT—like the vast majority of students—understands the importance of honest test scores. We also know the importance of ensuring that students maintain access to the educational opportunities which the ACT test provides. Our enhanced procedures will help us continue to achieve both objectives.
