What Do My Scores Mean?Your scores are between 1 (the lowest score you can receive) and 32 the highest score you can receive). PLAN takes the number of questions you got right on each test and translates it into a number between 1 and 32.Just like grades, your scores tell you how well you did on each test. Your Composite score is simply the average of your test scores in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science (rounded to a whole number). The two scores directly under English and Math only range from 1 to 16. They tell you how well you did in two specific areas of each subject. These scores added together do NOT necessarily equal your English or Math Test scores.
How Do My Scores Compare with Those of Other Students Who Took PLAN?Next to your scores, you'll find the percent of students scoring at or below your score. This shows you how your scores compare to those of students across the country who took PLAN. The example above shows 83% next to the student's English score. This means she scored as high as or higher than 83% of students in the comparison group who took PLAN.The other percents show how you scored relative to other students who took PLAN in your school, your school district, and your state.
Am I on Track?PLAN is designed for 10th graders and the ACT is designed for 11th and 12th graders. Over time, PLAN and the ACT measure your college readiness skills as you progress through high school.Your PLAN scores can be used to predict how you are likely to do if you take the ACT as an 11th or 12th grader and keep working hard. The estimated ACT Composite score range is a prediction about how you are likely to score on the ACT if you take the right courses and work hard in those courses.You can use these predicted or estimated scores to see if you are on track to achieve the scores you want when you take the ACT later in high school. (See EXPLORE, PLAN, and the ACT.)Keep in mind that these scores are only estimates, not guarantees. Improving your study habits and taking more challenging courses are likely to improve your ACT scores.
Your Future!When you took PLAN, you answered questions about your future educational plans.This information can help you clarify your goals and plan for your future—including, perhaps a college education…
Thinking about College?Your PLAN results give you an early clue as to whether you will be ready for college-level work if you keep doing the same things in school.ACT has also developed College Readiness Benchmark Scores. If you meet these benchmark scores, you are on your way to having the skills you will need by the time you finish high school. The checkmarks show whether you scored above, at, or below the benchmark scores.
Your Career PossibilitiesIt's not too soon to begin exploring possible careers!Your PLAN Score Report helps you start by focusing on a few career areas. Exploring careers is easier if you have a good map. Occupations that might be right for you.
How Can I Improve?The back of your Score Report describes the skills and knowledge you already probably have.You'll also see some ideas for improving even more in the different subject areas. The suggestions are based on your scores and can help you do better and make sure that you are college ready.
