ACT has offered North Dakota and its juniors who were not able to test on the initial state test date of March 3, 2020, the opportunity to take the ACT with Writing on either the June 2020 or July 2020 national test date, at no cost to them. NDDPI has provided state paid vouchers to requesting schools.  Students will need to go to the ACT’s website to register for the national June 13, 2020 or July 18, 2020 test date, using the state provided voucher, by the registration deadline. On this registration site, students will be able to choose an available test site nearest to them.

Seniors in the class of 2020 needing to meet the qualifying ACT scores in order to receive the State Academic or CTE Scholarship will have until the end of August to submit these scores for scholarship eligibility. The scholarship application deadline is June 5, however seniors will have until August 31, 2020 to add ACT exam scores to complete their application.

ACT WorkKeys

Governor Burgum has issued Executive Order 2020-4.2, which allows schools to be opened on a limited basis starting June 1, 2020.  This order includes the administration of WorkKeys exams.

Schools wishing to give WorkKeys exams prior to June 1, 2020 still have the option of doing so at an off-site location (business, community center, library, church, etc.), provided that the school has a WorkKeys site license and meets all requirements specified by ACT in a recent email.  An off-site location must adhere to ACT’s testing requirements and cannot be administered in a home or remotely. 

This option is available to juniors needing to complete the WorkKeys for the state test, as well as seniors needing the WorkKeys scores for qualification of the state CTE Scholarship.  All state tested junior WorkKeys assessments must be completed by July 31, 2020.  

Seniors in the class of 2020 needing to meet qualifying WorkKeys scores in order to receive the state CTE Scholarship will have until the end of August to submit these scores for scholarship eligibility. The scholarship application deadline is June 5, however seniors will have until August 31, 2020 to add WorkKeys exam scores to complete their application.
