(4) ACT (11th Grade)

On Tuesday, February 23, 2021, TMSA will be participating in the North Carolina statewide administration of the ACT for 11th-grade students. The ACT is designed to measure skills that are most important for success in postsecondary education and that are acquired in secondary education. Juniors are encouraged to take the ACT because exam scores can be used to fulfill test score requirements for the college application and admissions process.

Students who plan on participating in the exam will be required to come to campus and test in-person (face coverings and social distancing protocols will be strictly enforced). Please complete this survey by COB Tuesday, February 9, 2021, indicating your student's plan for participating in this statewide exam administration.

PSAT 8/9 (8th & 9th Graders)

On Tuesday, March 2, 2021, TMSA will administer the PSAT 8/9 to 8th and 9th-grade students. The PSAT 8/9 is an optional exam for TMSA 8th and 9th-graders. It measures verbal reasoning, critical reading, math problem solving, and writing skills important for success in college. The PSAT 8/9 also measures what you're learning in school and helps determine if you're on track for high school and beyond.

Students who plan on participating in the exam will be required to come to campus and test in-person (face coverings and social distancing protocols will be strictly enforced). Please complete this survey by COB Tuesday, February 16, 2021, indicating your student's plan for participating in this exam administration.

PreACT (10th Grade)

On Tuesday, March 23, 2021, TMSA will be administering the PreACT exam to 10th-grade students. In North Carolina, all 10th-graders take the PreACT. This assessment measures what students have learned in their courses and helps educators identify the information that students still need to learn to succeed in college or a career. The PreACT also simulates the ACT testing experience by providing students early exposure to ACT test-quality questions.

Students who plan on participating in the exam will be required to come to campus and test in-person (face coverings and social distancing protocols will be strictly enforced). Please complete this survey by COB Tuesday, March 9, 2021, indicating your student's plan for participating in this exam administration.
