Hillsboro, ND — For High School Juniors, perhaps the three most dreaded letters of the year are A, C, and T. The ACTs are a standardized test used for college admissions in the United States that covers four academic skill areas, including English, math, reading, and science. Hillsboro Juniors took the test earlier this week, but with a new twist. No sharpening of the pencil was needed as High School Principal Terry Baesler says they took the test online for the first time ever.

For the next couple years, colleges are not requiring ACT tests as part of their admission process and the State of North Dakota will no longer be requiring schools to offer it either. However, Principal Baesler says they will continue to ask their Juniors to take the test to monitor student progress.

Baesler added that Hillsboro students should expect to receive the results from their ACT tests in about five weeks.
