Scores Plans Career Possibilities Skills You can use this information to: make sure your remaining high school courses are the best ones possible to prepare you for college help you consider your options for after high school Your Scores: 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.

Your Composite score is simply the average of your test scores in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science (rounded to a whole number). Your Scores (cont.): 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. Your Scores:

Scores: How Do They Compare? 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 at CHS who took PLAN. Scores: 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. Scores: Am I on Track? 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. 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. Current Composite ACT Ranges for Some NC Universities Appalachian State 23-27 Queens University 20-26 Davidson
