What is the EXPLORE test?

  • Published by ACT

  • A component of the ACT College and Career Readiness System

  • Designed to help eighth and ninth graders explore a broad range of options for their future. It prepares students not only for their high school coursework but for their post–high school choices as well.


EXPLORE Part I

  • EXPLORE® contains four curriculum-based assessments:

    • Mathematics

    • Reading

    • Science

  • The assessment is based on the major areas of high school and postsecondary instructional programs and measures the skills and knowledge needed for college success.

  • A career exploration component that stimulates students' thinking about future plans and relates personal characteristics to career options.

  • An interest inventory in which students indicate their personal interests


EXPLORE Results

  • Assess academic progress

  • Provide an early indicator of college readiness

  • Help students understand and begin to explore a wide range of career options

  • Assist students in developing a high school coursework plan in preparation for achieving their post-high school goals
