My Students

Many of our 11th graders are striving to be first generation college students. They have an extended school day and extended school year, and many also work jobs or participate in after school activities despite the long hours.

Currently, our students are preparing to take the ACT, hoping to grow their scores and increase their college options.

They are practicing in each core class and taking practice tests once a quarter. They are super focused on improving their scores in order to increase their college choices and earn scholarships.

My Project

Our students have been practicing accuracy and speed in preparation for the April and June ACT tests.

These watches will help our junior students work on their pacing skills in order to increase their ACT scores.

They will be able to use their watches on practice tests and during the real ACT. Pacing practice will increase the odds of students finishing the exam in the allotted time and will, therefore, result in increased scores. Having a watch on test day will eliminate the stress of not being able to find or see the clock in the testing room and give students the confidence and predictability they need to ace the test.
