A Study of the Effects of Test Preparation Programs on ACT Mathematics Scores.
VanScoy, Ted L.
Colleges and universities are using the ACT test as a tool to help decide which students are awarded scholarships, admitted into programs, and declared eligible to participate in athletics. The purpose of this study was to see if students could improve their ACT mathematics score during junior year. A comparison was made of 52 Ritchie County High School students' mathematics scores on the October, 1995 PLAN (Pre-ACT) test to the mathematics scores on the April, 1997 ACT test. It was concluded that the best way students can improve their math scores is to enroll in more college preparatory math classes. Another way students can improve their scores is to have the teacher acquire old ACT tests and use them for problems of the day. Contains 46 references. (Author/NB)
