Test Day Procedures

  • Report to your assigned test center by the Reporting Time (8:00 a.m.) listed on your admission ticket. (You will not have an admission ticket if you are trying to test standby.) You will not be admitted to test if you are late.
  • Bring acceptable identification. You will not be admitted to test without it.
  • Testing staff will check your ID and admission ticket, admit you to your test room, direct you to a seat, and provide test materials.
  • Be ready to begin testing after all examinees present at 8:00 a.m. are checked in and seated.
  • Do not engage in any prohibited behavior at the test center. If you do, you will be dismissed and your answer document will not be scored.
  • You may use a permitted calculator on the Mathematics Test only. Some models and features are prohibited. You are responsible for knowing if your calculator is permitted and bringing it to the test center.
  • The following rules also apply to using your calculator:
    • you may use it only during the Mathematics Test;
    • you may use your backup calculator only after it has been checked by a member of the testing staff;
    • you may not share your calculator; and
    • you may not store test materials in your calculator's memory
  • If your calculator has characters one inch high or larger, or a raised display, testing staff may seat you where no other examinee can see your calculator.
  • A short break is scheduled after the first two tests. You will not be allowed to use cell phones or any electronic devices during the break, and you may not bring food or drinks back to the test room. (If you take the ACT Plus Writing, you will have time before the Writing Test to relax and sharpen your pencils.)
  • Students taking the ACT (No Writing) with standard time are normally dismissed at about 12:15 p.m.; students taking the ACT Plus Writing are normally dismissed about 1:00 p.m.
  • If you do not complete all your tests for any reason, tell a member of the testing staff whether or not you want your answer document scored before you leave the test center. If you do not, all tests attempted will be scored.
