If you don’t change it now you will not be able to change it later. Next: You are now at the Visitor Center. Click on “main menu” in the lower left just above “quit”. At the Main Menu, select the testing center, where you will take a diagnostic test. Next: Choose the Diagnostic Test Tab. Here you will take a shortened version of the ACT. It will provide you an idea of what you should focus on to improve your scores. 1. The diagnostic test is a short test you will take to create a Study Path. The test includes four subjects: English, math, reading, and science. The diagnostic test does, however, contain enough questions in each subject to identify areas in which you may need more preparation. 2. You will NOT be able to see your actual scores on the diagnostic test, but your performance will be reflected in your study path. 3. The diagnostic test is not timed. You may choose the subjects in any order, and you can stop and come back later, picking up where you left off. 4. Your Study Path will be created when you finish all four subjects. WHY DO THIS?
