The ACT is used by many two-year colleges to determine the placement of students in math, English and reading as established by the Arkansas State Board of Higher Education. The Freshman Assessment and Placement (PDF) document identifies the scores needed on the exams to bypass developmental courses at BRTC.
The test will last approximately four hours. The results of this test will be used to place students into the proper level of reading, math and English.
The Use of a Calculator
A calculator may be used for the mathematics test, however, all problems on the math test can be solved without using a calculator. You are not allowed to use the following types of calculators: pocket organizers, handheld or laptop computers, electronic writing pads or pen-input devices, or models with QWERTY (typewriter style) keyboard.
ACT Application packets are available on demand while supplies last. Register for the exam online at http://www.actstudent.org/
