Standardized Testing



March 21, 2022-April 15, 2022

 All testing must be done during this time-frame. 



ACTS is pleased to announce our selection of Data Recognition Corp/CTB as our standardized test vendor, beginning with the spring 2015 testing season. ACTS will implement CTB’s TerraNova®, Third Edition to replace the existing SAT/10 assessments- which are no longer being normed. ACTS has been doing its due diligence in determining whether we would continue with our present SAT/10 assessments. After careful consideration TerraNova 3 was selected and now offers:



    *High quality, technically sound tests that minimize bias and maximize accuracy.


    *Great design, innovation, technical excellence, and content.


    *Current norms derived from a national empirical study that mirror your students.


    *Online reporting and analysis with easy access to achievement data to drive instruction.


    *Under the terms of this 5 year agreement, Data Recognition Corp/CTB will provide the test materials, scoring, home report, and online reporting system for $19.50/student. This amount includes shipping with the exception of international schools.


    *Robust professional development from Data Recognition Corp/CTB that includes information about test administration, managing test materials, understanding reports, analyzing data, and connecting test results to inform decisions about school improvement and instruction as well as research-based best practices.


    We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Data Recognition Corp/CTB, the leader in the assessment market. Contact our office for additional information to assist you in making a smooth transition to TerraNova 3.
